I've been meaning to attempt a ribbon flower for awhile. The Bo Bunny double dot ribbon is perfect for this since the pattern in on both sides. :)
Here's the finished card complete with ribbon flowers & curly tendrils!
Here's what you'll need to make your own flower (along with some glue, hot glue works great).
Begin with a 12" or so piece of ribbon and fold the end at a 90 degree angle. This is your flower center.
I decided to use a piece of cardstock as a base. It makes it easier to work with the ribbon and gives you a solid base to adhere the flower down with once finished. Put a dab of glue in the center of the circle and adhere down your 90 degree angle piece. Begin curling the ribbon around to make a center.
Now it's time to make "petals". To do this half the ribbon between your thumb and index finger and start folding and twisting the ribbon around the center. Keep doing this until the flower is the desired size. Adhere petals down as needed to keep them in place. Once you get to the end just tuck it under a petal to hide.
When finished cut out your flower. For the tendrils cut a thin strip from green paper and twist around a pencil.
How easy & fun is that!!

Tip: To mail a bulky card just place in a padded envelope and add a little extra postage. :)
Thanks for stopping by & I can't wait to see what you come up with!
