Ribbon flower tutorial today!

Good morning everybody! I hope your day is off to a great start. Today I have a tutorial for you today on how to make a ribbon flower. They are super easy to do and the results are just stunning.

Step 1: Pick your ribbon (I've used our 1 1/4 inch striped ribbon here). With a needle and thread stitch all the way down one side of your ribbon, using an in and out stitch. Make sure the end that you started stitching on is knotted!
Step 2: Gently start pulling the thread. Start at the end still attached to the needle. Pull until it is as tight as it can go. It will start to form the flower shape all on it's own.

Step 3: Fold over both ends of the ribbon so that the ends of the ribbon are on the back of the flower. Add a couple stitches on the back of the flower to keep the 2 ends together.

Step 4: You can leave the flower just like this or add a brad or button to the center of the flower.
These flowers are beautiful on cards or scrapbook pages, but they would also make beautiful hair ties for little girls, or I would add a pin back to it and use it as a pin.

I've offered this ribbon share before, but I will offer it again for the rest of the month for anybody who did not get to take advantage of it.
