Hello......... today I thought I'd share with you these little ribbon flowers that I have been making for my Wintertime wreath, they are really quick and easy to make, all you need is ribbon and some cute little buttons.
I got the idea for these cute little flower from February's issue of Making magazine, to tell you the truth that's why I bought the magazine as there was a ribbon flower wreath on the cover and I was in the midst of making my Springtime wreath at the time, I knew I had to get a copy. I planned to make some back then but just ran out of time.
So I just had to make some when I decided to make a Wintertime wreath. I made mine using three 8cm length of ribbon laid out as above.
then working on the reverse you just stitch through the centre to hold the ribbons in place
Before you fold each ribbon into the centre and stitch to form the petals
Then you just have to find a cute button to cover up the stitches and form the centre of the flower
and stitch it into place Ta-Dah
That's it's, job done, I told you they were quick and easy, so they are perfect for this busy time of year, it also helps if you have a feline crafting assistant supervising, as they do love all thing ribbon.!!
As I said mine are destined for my wintertime wreath, but I think they would look perfect on gifts, cards and gift tags.
Well that's it for today, I still have the dreaded lurgy and a ever growing to do list, we are so far behind, but I refused to get stressed about it, I have to confess we don't even have any decorations up yet eek, never mind we'll get there in the end.
