Customized Address Book For Less

Hello everyone. Nicole here. It’s no surprise that I love ribbon flowers. I often look for ribbon flowers so I can cut the flowers out, alter them, and use them on my projects without having to pay a great deal of money for them! I love that I can buy a yard of flower ribbon for a few dollars and make it last for several of my projects.

Here’s an address book that I created using a flower that I cut from the ribbon. Initially, I was going to alter the flower with some mist but felt that with the misted chipboard cover, it would be too much. So instead, I decorated the center of my flower using a wooden button by Jillibean Soup (love them) and some baker’s twine. I love how elegant the flower looks on this book.

I am thinking this will make a great Christmas gift for someone.

Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a great day!

    I like how you added the wooden button to the middle of the pretty flower. This is not only handy, but pretty.
