Making No Sew Ribbon Flowers
Here on the May Arts Blog, we love ribbon flowers! Especially ones that don't take a whole lot of time to make, but are still just as beautiful. So, today, we are featuring 'No Sew Ribbon Flowers'. We have two designers that will show you a few techniques to use that will create a variety of different looks. Hope you enjoy!
First up is Christina Colón:
Steps for the green flower:
- Starting in the middle of your Gluber, adhere the ribbon in a close spiral. Make sure to work from the center of the circle to the outside. It doesn't need to be neat and perfect, just nice and tight.
- Finish flower off with a cute center piece or just leave as is. For mine, I actually used a piece of glass. Don't worry! It's not sharp.
For the Big Ruffle Flower:
- I used adhesive sheets by Scor-Pal for this big beauty. First, I used my circle punch to make my circle foundation.
- Starting at the outside, fold and pleat your ribbon working around the circle until you do a complete rotation.
- Once you have finished the first row, do the same thing for a second row.
- Now that you have your two layers, finish the flower off with a cool embellishment. I dressed up an old pewter picture frame and glued it to the center.
You can also see a third flower in the photo. I made this ombre inspired flower using the same technique as the big ruffle flower. I do have plans for these flowers and you'll just have to keep an eye out to see what I do with them!
Thank you for hangin' out with me and I look forward to bringing you some awesome ideas for that ribbon stash we know you have!

Hey hey ribbon lovers. I’m excited to share a fun project with you today. I’ve always loved making my own embellishments and creating them with ribbon is so easy. It’s truly easier than you would ever think. Check out the card I created with three small handmade flowers.
I’ve created a video to show you just how I made these. I hope that you will give it a try and use them on layouts, home décor and card making in your own studio. May Arts offers a wide array of colors and sizes in this satin ribbon so you’ll be sure to find something that matches your need. Enjoy!
Thanks for watching!
