How about a topper with a difference? Try this Ribbon Flower...just for a change!

We have tried making other types of flowers ...

Crochet Flowers,

Paper Flowers,

Retro Punched Flowers,

a Teabag Flower

and we have even got some

Acetate Flowers

so how about having a go at some flowers made using up bits of ribbon in your stash.

Ribbon Flower

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?

Step 1

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.

Step 2

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!)

Step 3

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.

Step 4

This is what your finished ribbon flower should look like...Yes?

(And the black stitching doesn't show....)

You can make them in any color and fabric that you want to.

The width of the ribbon you choose will determine the size of the flower.

Finish the centers off with a paper flower, Buttons, Brads or Gemstones.

Some of the fabrics used here are silk, cotton, lace and some narrow ribbon.

In the centre of this lace ribbon flower I have added the pink Organza flower with a brad centre 

I have used a strong glue to attach this to my card.

This blue ribbon is silk and quite heavy, so I used my ever trusty Pinflair Glue Gel.

A blue gemstone fits in the center.

Very plain and very elegant.

I added just a few more gemstones on the bottom corner of the card for the finishing touch.

Magic!
