Ribbon Flower

Good Morning!

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.
