How to make Satin Ribbon Flower:
We learned how to make this ribbon at Convention this summer. I thought it would take a lot of time to make but it is very quick and easy. The tighter you wrap the ribbon the more the flower sticks up. I like to make mine fairly flat...
Step 1- Cut a 16" piece of 5/8" Satin ribbon. Then make slits at 1/2" to 3/4" intervals across the whole piece of ribbon.
Step 2- Round each petal top like this.
Step 3- Then heat the rounded petals with the heat gun until it curls. The more it curls the more the flower sticks up as well.
Step 4- Take 1 3/4" Circle Punch and matching cardstock and punch circle. Then cover circle with sticky strip. (Sorry the next 2 pictures our blurry...)
Step 6-Continue to wrap ribbon until it ends with the last petal in the center.. It is good to put a brad, pearl or button in the center to hide the end. Here is the finished flower.
These would make great embellishments for your scrapbook pages as well! Thanks for looking!
