Today is my turn to do a tutorial for the Bugaboo Challenge Blog. I chose to share a Ribbon Flower Technique that I found while trolling around on You Tube one day, I love flowers and making them is so much fun ,so I am loving this!!
Here's what you will need;
a 12 inch strip of ribbon, glue dots and a needle with embroidery floss.
the first thing you need to do is start weaving your needle through the ribbon back and forth, as shown
keep sewing all the way to the end of the ribbon strip
when you have finished sewing all the way to the end you start pulling on the embroidery floss from both ends
pull and pull until the embroidery floss is very tight, then tie a knot
next turn the edges down towards the back and glue them together with a couple of glue dots
cut the strings off, then flatten the flower out a bit. add a button or brad
and here are a few of my finished ribbon flowers!!
