Here is my tutorial on the woven ribbon flower I did on my SOD layout called "My Girl". I used a strip of mesh on the layout flower, but it is easier to show you the tutorial with using a strip of ribbon I had from my stash. There seems like a lot of steps to this, but it's actually pretty fast moving and easy to do. You can choose a die of your chose as long as the petals are wide. I used a die I had on hand, but this can also work with the six point flower from the Tim Holtz tattered flower die. Here's what you will need: Large and Small Flowers Similar to The Ones in the Pic Approx 2 Feet of Ribbon (Sizes vary with flower sizes so this should give you plenty to work with) Exacto Knife Adhesive Ink, Stickles, Centerpiece Decoration Use your exacto knife to cut slits in the tip of each petal, but don't go to close to the edge. You can cut a center out or use a standard hole punch, like I did. It doesn't have to be pretty, just big enough to allow multiple sections of ribbon through. Box 4 shows how to start your ribbon and about how much to leave on the starting end. Here is the basic steps to weave the ribbon onto your flower. Follow these pictured steps until you get all the way around your flower. This is what you should be left with, once you finish weaving the ribbon. I used glossy accents and ran a small strip on the back of my exposed pedal and pressed down until it stayed. I cut the end of my ribbon that I wove and left enough to glue down as well as shown in the pictures. I forgot to ink my edges in the beginning so I just did them now. I used cats eye chalk because it fits into the tight spots way easier. Now take some adhesive and glue down your smaller center flower. Decorate your center with an item or items of your choice. I used stickles along the tips of both the large and small petals. So this is a finished Woven Ribbon Flower. Hope you enjoyed the tutorial!! Thanks for stopping by and God Bless!!
