I made a card for one of the women who takes care of our areas Girl Scouts. I wanted to get my Oldest E involved in Daisies earlier but it hasn't happened with all the chaos this fall! Hopefully it will happen next year! I found this absolutely adorable La-La Land Scout Marci Stamp and had to have it!
Here is a close-up of my Homemade Flower Power! I knew I had to go with a ribbon flower because my paper flowers are pitiful compared to the beautiful ones the other ladies make with that flower shoppe cart (on my wishlist)!!
The crinkle ribbon ones are easy to make. I sewed down the length of the Hot Pink ribbon with my sewing machine but you can do it by hand too, then I pulled the strings tight to gather it.
I punched out a 1 1/4" circle (I decided not to use the button sitting there).
Then I adhered the gathered crinkle ribbon to the circle by starting on the outside and working my way in.
Added a rhinestone (yes my poor neglected stash of them) and I stapled a curl of Olive Green Crinkle Ribbon for the leaves. I adhered that to the back of the circle with a glue dot and viola...a beautiful Handmade flower!
Please come show off your Handmade Flower Power this week at My Craft Spot! Thanks for stopping by today!
