No Sew Flower Cuff
First, you will want to find a shirt that has a cuff. I chose this sweater that has french cuffs, but you can use any type you would like.
Next, you want to cut the cuff from the shirt.
I chose some ribbons to match. I wanted to make a few flowers and some leaves. I chose Double Ruffle White ribbon first to go across the whole cuff. Then I took some Pink Grosgrain and made some twisty fabric flowers. You can find a tutorial here for the flowers if you have never made them before. I tucked some Green Double Ruffle Ribbon under the pink flowers to look like leaves and add some color.
The next step is to glue everything down. I use Beacon Fabri-Tac. It is super strong and it can go through the wash. You can also sew everything down. I added some small pearls to the flowers for interest.
If you make one(or two or three) link us up!
I made another one here using zippers.
