Thought I would chat a little about making your own flowers.
Creating these little ribbon flowers are super easy - just cut a pievce of ribbon - I usually use a piece 6-8 inches long. Using your sewing machine or by hand sewing - stitch a straight stitch down the side of the ribbon. Then slide the ribbon down the thread slowly gathering it as you go. Once it is gathered, shape into a circle and stitch the sides togehter. You can then layer a variety of different things inside to add depth to your flower.Another quick, easy way to create a flower embellishment is with punches. I combined two different punches and two different papers. Be sure to bend up the petals to give it some dimension - add a jewel to the middle and walla!!
Come on - give it a go - Morag has a challenge on the board to make your own embellies on a layout - whip up a quick flower and upload to Morag's Challenge Thread!
