Hello everyone!  Hope you're enjoying your weekend.  Today Design Team member Jamie Harder is sharing instructions for creating a simple but super cute ribbon flower!

Here's Jamie...

Supplies: You will need ribbon, thread and needle.

Your first step is to thread your needle and start to stitch on one side of the ribbon:

Now just continue stitching:

Once you are finished threading it will look like this:

Now you can tie the thread at one end and then pull the thread until is scrunches up to make a flower shape:

If it doesn't quite make it all the way around, feel free to add more stitches until it does. Now you can tie a knot on the other end of the thread, cut off remaining thread and stitch the two ends together.

And, voila, a beautiful flower. You are ready to add a brad or button to the middle and add it to your project!Posted Image
