Ribbon Flowers

Good Morning everyone hope you haven't missed me to much but I am back today with a wired ribbon flower tutorial I did for Cuttlebug Challenge let me know what you think.

I am going to share with you how I did the ribbon flower on my tin which is pretty simple I used wire ribbon and here is a picture of the supplies

Now I am using blue ribbon for my tutorial as I had already done the red one when I decided to do this particular project now let's get started first cut a piece of wire ribbon probably 12 inches long now pull the wire to gather the ribbon like this.
Pull wire and gather till it looks like this
Now you are going to shape your flower
Now we are going to do the leaves this time pull the wires from both ends like this

Next we are going to shape that leaf I wrap the wire around the ends to form the leaves I think you can see.
and this is what you have when you are finished I glue my rose to the top of my tin using Beacon 3 and 1 glue
I also used Cuttlebug Folder Cherry Blossoms from the Asian Line and Core'dination card stock
Thanks for joining me today and  hope I was able to share something new with you I had so much fun sharing my idea with all of you.
