Making My Own Flowers For Packages ~ I Use These Instead Of Bows
I used to craft quite often, but when you really don't feel good, crafting is the last thing you want to do. Now that I am feeling well, I am getting itchy to start crafting again.
I do blame a lot of my wanting to craft again on Theresa, at Theresa's Mixed Nuts. She is always making something cool.
I had all this material that is like ribbon and is on spools like you see above. I probably have 4 or 5 different colors of it. I had no idea what I was going to do with it.
I remembered I used to make flowers out of material.... so that is what I decided to do.
. I cut a piece of the ribbon 20 inches in length
. Fold in half length wise
. With a needle and thread, gather the top
. I pull the thread until it forms a flower like you see above
. Sew it together so it doesn't fall apart
. I went out and bought pom poms for the center
Walla!!! Here are the flowers I made for my gifts for our Family Cook Off that I will tell you about later.
The flowers didn't turn out quite as cute as I thought they would...... but they are going to have to do.
Here are all the presents ready for our Family Cook Off on Sunday!! I will post more about the cook off later.
