Ribbon flowers

This week's workshop wow challenge is to make fabric or ribbon flowers.  I didn't have time to go looking for my fabric stash, so I whipped up these ribbon flowers.  It really only took about 20 minutes to make all 3.  To make a ribbon flower, just grab a needle and thread to make a running stitch (just in and out, not too close together) along one edge of the ribbon.  Pull the thread tight to gather up the ribbon and tie a knot to hold it together.  These are not flat, so this is a card to give in person unless you mail it in a padded envelope.
Supplies (all SU): Stamps: Awash with Flowers; Paper: Whisper White, Crushed Curry, Razzleberry Lemonade DSP; Ink: Basic Gray, Crushed Curry; Accessories: scallop border punch, ribbon (Rich Razzleberry, Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo), filigree brad, jumbo brad, Hodgepodge Hardware brad
Happy stamping!
