Ribbon flowers

Want to make some ribbon flowers?

Supplies you need:
-Alene's Quick Dry Tacky Glue
-Creative memories circle punch (though you can free hand cut these as well)
- scissors
- scrap cardstock- coordinating color with ribbon
- Maya Road Trim Collection - Organza Roses Ribbon - Small - Turquoise - 1 Yard
- Pink Paislee - House of Three - Parisian Anthology Collection - Ribbon - Ruffled Darlings Strips

Let's go!
1- punch out circles of the cardstock. Best to use the same color as the ribbon you select incase any peaks through.
These will just be the base, so you can freehand cut them as well. I used the 1.5" circle cutter from Creative Memories.

2- Cut apart the organza roses to make centers. Cut off any excess fringe

3- Cut ruffled ribbon into approximately 6 inch strips.

4- Put glue in a ring around the outside of the circle.

5- Adhere ruffled ribbon to glue, leaving center empty.

6- Put glue in center and adhere previously cut center rosette.

7- if you buy enough supplies, you make loads of these!
Swap them. Put some on your own layouts and cards. RAK them.
