A Flower Embellishment
Spring is blooming – and so it’s time to create a new flower with gorgeous May Arts Ribbons! I’ve made tons of ribbon flowers, but this one has a few variations that I thought gave it a different look.
Die cut a circle of Scor-Pal tape sheets, and a matching cardstock circle. Use a color of paper that matches your ribbon. Attach the adhesive to the cardstock.
Take 2 yards of sheer ribbon, and cut tabs along the length.
Starting on the outside of the sticky circle, start wrapping the ribbon, but gather the ribbon a little bit as you go.
After the flower base is completely covered, quickly hit over the ribbon with a heat gun to melt and shape the flower petals. (Make sure to hold the flower still with something that won’t heat up – like a pencil). Apply the flower to your project.
