Bunn has instructions on how to make cockades should you or girliegirl need it. :)

p.s. forgot to say: super super easy. Definitely a 20 mins or less kinda thing.

Surething! I don't have them electronified (is that a word?), so pop me your snail address via bunbun dot bunny at g mail dot com and I'll pop a copy to you and to our dearest girliegirl. :)

Yay! And you know the funny thing? I just looked at the CC26 programming and it looks like Jana is going to teach a hands-on mini workshop on those too. :)

What a fascinating cockade. It *does* remind me of fancy napkins!

I know, I'd never seen anything like it. Like a cockade-plus! :>

Funny...I recently dug up an old Threads mag that has instructions about how to make cockades...couldn't remember who was talking about them. Maybe it was you two at our Poe outing?

Issue number 74, I think: 1998. There are some fun variations, and I was inspired to dig into my stash of silly ribbon bits to play around. I'll have to post some pics.

It was probally us at the Poe event. Yes, please do post pics, that would be fun!
