Crinkled Ribbon Flower
by Susan Roberts
Heated ribbon and sheer fabrics create a crinkled flower.
- Sheer Ribbon, Organdy, Tulle and Lace used here
- Dies, Spellbinders “Blossom” used here
- Heat Gun
- Decorative Brad
- Tweezers and Scissors, optional
Cut several flowers from the ribbon, tulle and lace using flower shaped or circle dies.
If you don’t have any dies, scissors can be used to cut freehand flowers or circles.
Pull threads from a piece of ribbon leaving them attached on one side.
Heat the cutout flowers and pulled threads with a heat gun. It doesn’t take much to really get them to crinkle!
You may want to use tweezers to hold the ribbon to avoid burning your fingers!
Assemble the flower by pushing a brad through the center of each piece. Start with the threads and then begin with the flowers which are smallest or crinkled/melted the most.
Voila! You have a crinkled ribbon flower to use on your next project!
