Pretty Ribbon Flower

I am thrilled to finally be able to share with you my love for ribbon.  I am thankful to be one of the newest member's of the Ribbon Unlimited design team and I look forward to the opportunity to share my craft with you.

I don't have a little girl in my life that likes hair ribbons and bows, my daughter has outgrown them so my love for ribbon is how they dress up cards and other crafty projects.

The base of the card is an svg cut file by Lori Whitlock, but the real feature is the easy ribbon flower I created using Country Check light blue (3/8") and Double Face Satin green apple ribbons.

To make the flower I cut pieces of ribbon about 2 inches, folded them over and then stitched the middle together so the point is created.  Then I strung all 5 petals and pulled tightly.  I created the center by cutting out a flower shape from white felt and layered the ribbon flower, felt flower and button and sewed it all together.  The stem and leaves are pretty self-explanatory.

I hope you enjoyed my card and again, I look forward to coming up with fun and easy ideas to share with you.
