Dimensional Ribbon Flower
It was like Christmas for me when I received Little Yellow Bicycle’s Once Upon a Christmas collection! I knew these elegant papers would pair so well with May Arts’ ribbons. I’m going to show you how to create a dimensional flower using our wide satin ribbon and rubber stamps.
Using Staz-On Ink, stamp flower images of descending sizes onto wide satin ribbon.
Roughly cut around each flower, leaving a small margin.
You will want to cut 2-3 flowers for each size. Also cut one of each size from the Sheer/Twinkle ribbon.
Carefully melt the edges of the flowers by holding the ribbon near a candle flame.
The petals will curl, producing an organic look.
Layer the petals together, and stitch in the center to form your flower. Assemble the card as shown, using the velvet ribbon to edge the cream patterned paper, and to add a decorative knot above the journaling card. Add the gold crocheted ribbon underneath the flower to tie in the gold poinsettia.
