    We cut the ribbon into squares. For one flower – five squares, that is you’ll get five petals. If you want richer flower, make more squares.

    Now what is left is only to decorate the middle on your own. You will need pretty buttons, beads for this. You can sew an elastic or invisible hairpin to it on the back side. And you may sew the ready flower to clothes and get a decoration element.

Warnings

  • The flower may be made polypetalous, by laying on several flowers, different in size – beyond – the bigger, above – the smaller one. You may use petals of different color as well. In a word – show creativity and fantasy!

    The idea is nice, but I am making satin ribbons for decoration of plates. Any time we have celebrations, I decorate the whole table with different figures made of ribbon. It looks really fancy.

    The idea is nice. I like to decorate everything by myself. It creates special atmosphere in the house. The atmosphere of coziness and warmth.
