Hello there ladies, Liz here with a gorgeous pleated satin ribbon flower step by step so you can make some of these yourself.
What you will need
- 1 x 50mm x 50mm circle (cut from cardstock) you will attach the ribbon to this
- approx 40mm of pleated ribbon
- brad, large pearl, paper flower or embellishment of your choice
- hot glue gun (or glue strong enough to adhere ribbon to cardstock very securely)
Twist the ribbon around 2 fingers (shiny side down)
Keep twisting around and around the 2 fingers keeping it nice and neat and tight
It should look like this when you have used all the ribbon, using a hot glue gun apply glue all over the bottom of the ribbon and attach to a 50mm x 50mm card circle
Attach to your card
Here is a card I have made using this technique, I hope you make some for yourself and make sure to share your creations with us in the Red Earth Scrapping forum/gallery.
Have a great weekend ladies
