I am a huge fan of the flower embellishment. I have purchased tons of them for my scrapbook projects. The funny thing is...once I learned how to make different types of flowers my self, I quit using the bought ones. Then, when I had a baby boy I no longer found very many opportunities to use them on layouts at all. Now I make them for other projects such as journals, decorating, cards, hair clips/bands and on packaging for gifts.
This weeks video is a tutorial on a simple ribbon flower.
Here is what I did with the flowers I made.
And here are some other flowers I made using the same technique.
You can do the same thing with strips of fabric if you do not
have the right ribbon for a project.
The teal flower is a strip of satin
with a frayed edge. I like the
way it looks.
