Today you have not 1 but two tutorials.
I used this flower on top of the above lace flower.I dont know what it is called..I bought this in a cycle repair shop!!(if anybody knows the name, tell me) :)) yes.. My DH thought I am crazy!, when I stood in front of the cycle shop, to buy supplies.. :) I knew instantly, that I could make beautiful flowers with it..so here it is, for you to see in a card!
the inside of it is made of a thin rod, which can be bent.
You can bend a petal bend towards inside and the spacing is just right for bending the next petal
You can also make, 6,7 petal flowers..I find 8 petal flower is not looking so good.
Have you ever searched for the right color or design of ribbon for your projects, but in vain..here is a solution!Dye and design your own Ribbon!!
Take a plain white ribbon and the ink pad color of your choice.
Now place the ribbon on ink pad and pull it through the sponge.Do it 2 or 3 times, till the color evenly spreads.. Do it again , to darken the color..
Take your gel pen and draw the designs you want.all the gel pens including the glitter ones work well for this.. Dont try to use markers, they spoil the ribbon
These are some of the ribbons I made..The green one in the above card, was also polka dotted similarly.. Now, I know, you are hurriedly scrolling to the top of the post!!
Do share your views on the tutorials.. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
