Here's a quick and easy technique to create a ribbon flower. (Also posted as this month's technique on savvy n sassy's blog.

You will need the following supplies:
12" of 1 1/2" ribbon, 6" of 1" ribbon, needle, thread, 1 medium sided brad

First, fold the short end under (approx 1/4")

Starting at the folded end, stitch the entire length of the 1 1/2" ribbon using a basting stitch.

Pull the thread and gather the ribbon until it forms a circle.

Stitch the ends together so the gathering does not unravel.


This is what it will look like.



Repeat the same steps for the 1" ribbon.


Layer the smaller flower on top of the larger one and secure with a brad. Voila, there you have it, a ribbon flower.

Adhere flower to your project.

TFL!

your colors are great.
I make these for my dd's hair all the time-the shear ribbon gives a nice effect as well.
