The inspiration this week over to the Pals Paper Arts is “Where Have All The Flowers Gone”. Now that’s the magic word for me….flowers!
Here is the inspiration photo.
I was doing a little blog surfin’ the other day and came across this video tutorial (dated 4/7/11) for making this flower by the way of melting just the edge of your ribbon. Then I found out about the Challenge at the PPA ~ FLOWERS ~ You know what came next…. *smile*
The only thing that I did different than Ann was to add petals of ribbon
a lighter shade of pink here and there. Looking again, you can tell there are two shades of pink. I think I made my flower just a little tighter than hers as well. I happened to have on hand a couple silk florist leaves that went perfect with the flower instead of making them from card stock. The stamens were premade that I found at a local craft store.
TIP: Something I find a must have is ‘ribbon glue’ that was the only way that adding the lighter shade of pink petals, individually, would work. I added the glue on the bottom of each petal and squeezed them into place with my tweezers...it worked perfectly.
