Creating A Ribbon Flower

Here’s a quick and easy technique to create a ribbon flower.  You will need the following supplies:

12″ of 1 1/2″ ribbon, 6″ of 1″ ribbon, needle, thread, 1 medium sized brad

First, fold the short end under (approx 1/4")

Then, stitch the entire length of the 1 1/2" ribbon using a basting stitch.

Pull the thread and gather the ribbon until it forms a circle.

Stitch the ends together so the gathering does not unravel.

This is what it will look like.

Repeat the same steps for the 1" ribbon.

Layer the smaller flower on top of the larger one and secure with a brad.

Adhere flower to your project.
