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.

Flower Embellishment

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.
