Hi Everyone! I can't believe it's Wednesday/Hump Day already! Where did the week go?! With work and school pick-up and drop-offs it all seems like a blur. I'm sure you can relate.
I thought I'd keep things going this week with another flower embellishment tutorial. I have to admit, and you guys probably already know this about me, I'm completely addicted to flowers…fabric, paper, ribbon, you name it!! I can't make enough! I think part of the appeal is how versatile they are. You can use them on a card, layout, mini, gift wrap, and the list goes on.
Here's a cute little pompom flower I made to use on a card. Of course, you could easily adjust the size of the ribbon to use on a mini album or layout.
Pick an assortment of ribbons with lots of different textures. I used lace, burlap ribbon, and even strips of fabric such as muslin and eyelet. I even used a sheet of cheesecloth. Cut into strips approximately 3 1/2-4" long and 1/2" wide. Play around with the size to adjust for the particular project you are working on.
Tie the middle of the sandwich with string or twine. Separate and spread the strips out until it looks like a pompom flower. Trim up any strays, if needed. I tied a sparkly button to the center of my flower, but you could also use a bling center, flower, brad, or regular button.
And…just for fun…
