This set of TWO upcycled ribbon roses have been reserved!

Clean "upcycled" satin & grosgrain ribbons in earthy greens & brown form this chic rose brooch. The swirl and ruffles of the petals make this flower pin resemble a cabbage rose or peony.

Green rose brooch is about 2.3 inches / 6 cm x 2.5 inches / 6.5 cm

I hand-sewed the "petals" of this flower brooch -- clean, perfect ribbons salvaged from fine giftboxes -- to a Japanese felt base. The heart of the rose is a subdued emerald satin ribbon. Then comes a darker grosgrain ribbon for lovely texture. Beneath the olive ribbon peeks out a grass green lettuce edge. The outermost ring is a toffee brown ribbon with a mocha brown print ("Skin food" & tiny cupids). Only the tips of some letters are visible, adding colour and interest.

I stitched a large pin on the back instead of a brooch-back, to reduce bulk, so it can be pinned neatly flat. Feel free to add this gorgeous ribbon rose brooch to dress up a bag, coat, dress, scarf, or headband!
