I thought I would have a little play around with some of the ribbon I had bought from the NEC Hobbycrafts show in March. So I opted to make a flower with it. I began by folding over the end and glued it in place with my glue gun. Then I folded the end in to a triangle shape to create the centre of the flower.
Then I rolled the ribbon around this folding the edges and twisting it to shape as I built it up. I secured each fold using the glue gun dabbing small amounts of glue at a time.
When I felt I had got it to the size I wanted I cut the ribbon so I had a small amount hanging. I applied some glue to the back of the flower and lay the ribbon across it. Then trimmed the remaining ribbon to tidy the completed ribbon.
