Finally, I wanted to share a little card that I made up.
I was reading some of the comments from people at the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog and noticed that there were a lot of requests for how-tos on ribbon flowers. There were also requests for things that were flatter for mailing and layouts. This is a super simple idea for a flower.
To make the flower, you will need 5/8 inch satin ribbon, tape, and a hole punch. (I used my Making Memories Eyelet tool to make my holes.)
First, use a circle of some kind to find you placement for your flower. Mark five places equally around the circle. Mark a place in the middle for your flower center.
Next, use your hole punch or eyelet punch to make a hole in each of the marked places. Your center hole should be bigger than the outside holes. It will look like this.
Now, cut a long piece of ribbon and thread it through the holes. Start from the back with one of the outside holes and go through the center to make each petal. Repeat the process with all 5 petals.
Secure the ribbon ends on the back with tape.
Your finished flower should look like this. For the card, I put a brad in the middle. You could use a button or anything else you would like for the center.
You can use all different sizes of ribbon for this. If you are using a thin ribbon, you will want to put your holes closer together. If you use a thicker ribbon, I would suggest a sheer or other really flexible ribbon. There are loads of choices at Really Reasonable Ribbon, so be sure to go check it out!
Have a great National Scrapbook Day and thanks for dropping by!
