The other day I was looking at Details by Sandy's blog and seen her ribbon flower post. Since I have no shortage of ribbon I decided to try it. Some of my wired ribbons were too firm to do this with, but the lighter weight ribbon worked great! (Unlike Sandy's flowers, I only used one piece of ribbon.)
I started out with a 12 inch piece of light weight ribbon
Since my fingers don't work like they use to, I used my craft tweezers to grab hold of the wire on one side
and gathered the ribbon,
then I did the same thing to the other side.
Once I had both sides gathered the way I wanted them, I twisted the two wires together and cut off the excess wire.
Then I took the other side of the ribbon and did the same thing.
I punched out a 1 inch circle and hot glued it inside the flower. (A larger circle would have worked better if I had a larger punch lol)
I added double sided tape to the paper circle so I could attach it to my project.
To finish up the flower, I took two buttons and hot glued them to the top of the flower.
