a little wrinkle in my ribbon...

Wrinkle ribbon has become a popular item in my craft room and in almost every project that I create these days. Recently I began playing with different techniques to incorporate it in projects rather than just tying it in a bow. So today I bring you a little step by step guide to making ribbon flowers.

I began by using adhesive felt, which can be found in your local craft store. Using the Sizzix die, cut the felt into the desired size.
Remove the backing from the felt piece and you are ready to apply your ribbon.Wrinkle ribbon has the perfect amount of wrinkle and softness about it that allows you to wrap it around the circle, beginning at the center, to give it depth and layers with ease.If you choose to add beads, rhinestones, etc. to the center simple apply a little craft glue or thread them through the center.Just add felt leaves and it is ready to make the perfect addition to your next project!To create a layered flower, as in the blue flower in the first photo, simple repeat this process on two or more different sizes of circles and thread together. You can also try felt or fabric strips instead of ribbon. Mix it up!

Thank you for joining me and hope you enjoy using these in your next project.
