Ribbon Flower Favor Box

A few years ago at a Stampin' Up Convention, we learned how to make flowers out of ribbon.  You basically take a big needle (the kind used for cross stitching) and sew a running stitch at the top of the ribbon.  Then at the end, pull the thread so the ribbon ends up scrunching together.  Stitch a securing stitch at the bottom to close off the flower and you've got a simple, cute adornment to put on boxes, cards, etc.  I love, love, love the 1.25" striped ribbon. 

Stampin' Up Supplies Used:

Stamps:  Afterthoughts (Level 1 Hostess Set)
Ink:  Pumpkin Pie
Paper:  Crumb Cake, Confetti Cream, Baja Breeze
Accessories:  1 1/4" Pumpkin Pie Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, Bitty Box & Envelope Sizzix XL Die, Build-a-Brad, Linen Thread, 1/2" Circle Punch
