Quick Shabby Flower

Today I want to share a quick way to make a shabby fabric flower. I LOVE all sorts of flowers on cards and this was a fun one to use one of my favorite ribbons: 1 1/2" Black Gingham.

Start with about a foot of your chosen ribbon.

Fold in half and glue the edge with a hot glue gun.

Cut halfway into the fold about every 1/4" or so.

Start rolling your flower, hot gluing as you go.


Voila!


I added a brad for a flower center and also used Black Licorice Baker's Twine.
Thanks for taking a peek!

I knew how to make roses out of ribbons, but this is also lovely and quicker. Love the petals shape.
