Weaving a cube foliage ring box

Place a few blades on a flat surface and begin to weave

Place a few blades of grass in a parallel vertical position. Weave a horizontal pattern, with a new blade of grass, under and over the vertical pieces.

Keep adding long blades to build up a woven pattern.

Weave the second row, with a new blade of grass, over and under the vertical pieces. Keep the weaving tight up against the previous row for a strong weave

Weave in a guide ribbon

Weave in a guide ribbon, just like you did the leaves, and continue to weave a few more blades of grass next to the ribbon.

This is my ongoing creative workbook to research and capture design projects and techniques. You will mostly find ideas for floral art but I will also include some other projects such as gift packaging, cards and even cake decorating with a few lifestyle projects arranged in between.

Everything you see in this workbook was designed, made and photographed by me, unless specific credit is given to another designer.
