To Make Ribbon Flowers
Tip: Do 1 flower at a time and cut your ribbon when you have completed the flower
- Punch out 2 pieces from the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets using the 3/4″ punch
- Punch out 1 piece from the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets using the 1/2″ punch
- Do 1 flower at a time
- Peel backing off the circles to reveal the sticky surface
- Tie a knot at the end of the ribbon and adhere to center of the adhesive circle.
- Start going in a circle around the knot and twist your ribbon as you go. Make sure that the ribbon is being attached to the adhesive.
- When your flower is as large as you want, trim the end of the ribbon and tuck under the flower to adhere the end to the adhesive.
- Trim any adhesive sheet that shows beyond your flower and place flowers on the card in a group of three.
- Place a small pearl in the center of the flower.
- If some of the ribbon in the circles did not touch the adhesive sheet, use a glue dot to hold it down.
