Pleated Ribbon Flowers, Card + Tag – First Posted: Wednesday, November 03, 2010

Good Morning,

I don’t know if you saw this tutorial by Maya Road on their blog but I love these little pleated ribbon flowers they made and I thought aha! I can make those as I used to make Rosettes and have some very similar pleated ribbon in my stash. I showed the tutorial to my Mum and she thought that they might look a little more ‘flower like’ without the button if the ribbon went right through to the middle, so armed with my trusty hot glue gun I gave both a try. See what you think.

with button:

without button:

You know, although I like both, I think Mum had a point about them looking more ‘flower like’ without the button. So Mums birthday came round and guess which one I used on her card.

    Just wondering about the technique you used for “Happy Birthday” sentiment … is that embossed ? Do you have a tutorial for it ? Bet your Mum loved this !! E
