Ribbon Flowers

I found this fun creative project on the Drab to Fab web site.  You can find the instructions here: Fabulous Accesories. They were so fun and easy to make.  I did make a change.  Instead of material, I used ribbon.  Not that I don't have material to use, I have a wider selection of ribbon.

SUPPLIES:
Ribbon
Felt
Hot glue gun
Embellishments
Various seed beads to make necklace








You can use these flowers as various accessories.  On a necklace as I did.  Attached to a headband.  Pinned to a T-shirt. Use your imagination!


Cute necklace!

  10. LOL...Just read the comment from your daughter...the way she worded...are you going to give me... sounds so much like my daughter! I guess we could be flattered by their wanting what we have...but it seems like my daughter wants it all! Here from the Alexa Hop. The flowers are too cute. I have no patience working with something so small...I'll leave that to you...you do a great job! Just checked to see if I was a GFC follower...I wasn't but I am now. Would love for you to visit www.fingerclicksaver.com Have a great weekend!

  34. I was searching for ribbon necklaces on Pinterest and found you; I have those exact earrings in the center of the aqua and brown flower :) Right now one is on the center of a beige satin yo-yo I made for a hair clip, now I know what to do with the other one. Thank you for sharing! Very cute idea..
