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 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.
