This is an elegant lamp shade with velvet ribbon bows.  With card stock, hot glue, beads and other embellishments, you can make one like this too.  You can fashion it over the top of another shade for stability. Decorative scissors can be used to make the fluted sides and beads hot glued on to look like jewels. 

The velvet ribbon can be added in a few ways, one way is to hot glue a bow tie directly to the card stock.  Another way is to punch holes through the shade evenly spaced and tie the bows.  This way is a great idea so you can change the ribbon with the season or holiday.  Using the white card stock, allows you to use any and all colors of ribbon.
