Single Cut of Ribbon Flower tutorial

Are you ready to find out how to make this little beauty?

You will need:
1 1/2" ribbon
1 needle
coordinating thread
a button or brad that is at least 1/2" wide
hot glue gun
alligator clip

First start out with 12 inches of 1 1/2" ribbon.

Next, take a needle and thread in a matching color to the ribbon. and start at one end of the ribbon.

Do large (basting) stitch through the entire end.

pull tight.

Next, move on to the side doing the same kind of basting stitch.

Pull tight, but do not gather the remaining straight end.

until it looks like a scrunchie. Pull it tight so that it will gather under your button (or brad)
without being able to see the gathered edge.

Fold the other (ungathered) end over about 1/4"

lay it over the gathered end and attach it so that it looks like one continuous circle.

Glue around the outer edge of your button (or brad) and attach the ribbon to it.

Let it cool and then attach the alligator clip. Let the glue cool before you try it
out in your hair so that it isn't permanently stuck.

The picture is pretty bad, but I love this flower. And it is so simple.
