How about a topper with a difference? Try this Ribbon Flower...just for a change!
These are very easy to make and can be added to all your projects to suit the color scheme or the occasion that you are using them for
I love adding flowers to my cards, for me it adds the finishing touch, and what woman doesn't like to get flowers?
You will need a piece of ribbon about 20cms long, but it doesn't matter if it is longer
Use silk, taffeta, patterned, plain or in fact any that you have in your stash.
The one I have used here is a delicate cream organza.
With some cotton to match your ribbon, gather up one of the long edges with short running stitches.
(I only used black cotton so you could see the stitches....honest!)
Once you have the stitches through the edge you can then gather up the ribbon until it bunches together.
Put a couple of holding stitches in the center of the flower to keep everything in place.
And maybe a couple of stitches to hold the two short ends together.
This is what your finished ribbon flower should look like...Yes?
(And the black stitching doesn't show....)
