FM03 Challenge

Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black. DSP 'Night & Day'. Dies: Spellbinders and Sizzix Circles #2. Adhesive: Sticky Strip, Sticky Pages. Brads: SU Antique Brads. Misc: SU Pretties. Ribbon: 5/8" Whisper White Satin. Punch: 1/2" Circle. Stamp: Warm Words. Tools: Embossing Tool, Needle Tool, Big Shot.
Instructions: Cut Cardstock and DSP to desired sizes. Adhere a small piece of Sticky Pages in a squared. You will put it in the Big Shot to cut a circle. If you use the Sizzix Circles #2 die use next to the smallest circle. Pull the 'red' side off of the Sticky Pages circle. Cut a 15" piece of white satin ribbon. At one inch intervals....cut 'slots' in one side of ribbon. Using the uncut side start forming the ribbon around the circle from the outside in. Cut to desired length once your circle is complete. Using a needle tool....heat circle until ribbon changes characteristics. It will melt a little bit but makes a really pretty flower. Punch a hole in the middle of the flower and insert a brad, add a button or any embellishment of your choice. Attach all layers except do not attach to card base yet. Punch two small holes to one side of the flower to insert 'Pretties' Pin. Punch two holes at the top of the card for ribbon. Tie ribbon. Put 'Sticky Strip' on the back of the 'layers' and adhere to card base. Stamp with sentiment.
Misc Notes:
I love the 'Heated Ribbon' technique for making flowers. Any questions please ask! Thanks for visiting my blog.
