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


  1. Step 1

    Cut several flowers from the ribbon, tulle and lace using flower shaped or circle dies.

  2. Hint:
    If you don’t have any dies, scissors can be used to cut freehand flowers or circles.

  3. Step 2

    Pull threads from a piece of ribbon leaving them attached on one side.

  4. Step 3

    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!

  5. Step 4

    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.

  6. Step 5

    Voila! You have a crinkled ribbon flower to use on your next project!
