*******************************************************
For my project today, I chose to create some flowers for you made out of ribbon! You are seeing SOO many beautiful paper flowers on this hop that I thought I would change it up just a little bit for you! These flowers can be created out of any kind of ribbon you have around. You can also use tulle, fabric, canvas or anything you choose!
I LOVE YOU BERRY MUCH
Supplies: Best Creation Patterned paper, Assorted ribbon, Prima flowers/vine and pebble, Magistical Memories chipboard fence, Martha Stewart butterfly and border punch, Fiskars lace circle punch, Helmar premium craft glue, quick fix adhesive runner and liquid scrap dots.
Here is the project I created for you. It is using one of the older Best Creation lines. This line is filled with strawberries, flowers, swirls, polkadots, birdies and butterflies! Swoon! This creation was made just for me... I'm sure of it! :)
In creating this page, I did a lot of fussy cutting as you can tell. It is a little bit time consuming but so worth the effort! I layered some of the flowers using Helmar's Liquid Scrap Dots to give them a little bit of dimension.
The ribbon flowers are seen on the bottom left corner of the photos. See how well they blend into the overall design of the page?

To help you learn how to create these super simple flowers for yourself, I have put together a quick video tutorial. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask in the comments section!

Thank you so much for stopping by! I have a little RAK of goodies up for grabs from me personally! If you would like to have your name entered into this draw, please make sure you are a follower of my blog and leave a comment in the comments section! It's as easy as that! :) Then stop by on Friday Feb 11th and I will announce a winner!

Now... please note that these flowers are called RIBBON FLOWERS. Be sure to jot that down and add it in your email to Teresa at the end of the hop!

Ok... off you go to the fabulous blog of Tr
acey Taylor!!

    I enjoyed your blog, but please, when you are recording a video, turn off the TV in the background. I have hearing problems and I couldn't watch the video you made with the sound on due to the conflicting voices.
