Flower Power Clean and Simple

I took on the challenge of using a sketch over at Clean and Simple Stamping. I also did a challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers.

I made that flower! Yep, little ol' me! I learned to do this at Stampin' Up! Convention in July. You take a length of satin ribbon, cut one of the edges off, cut "fringes" about 1/2" apart, round the corners of those fringes, then heat it with a heat tool until the edges curl. Pretty huh?!

I was pretty proud that I did it and it turned out cute. I added a button to the center of mine, really because I cut the length too short! You can always fix a goof in the crafting world!

Thanks for checking out my post today. Have a good evening!

I love your flower! You can't tell that the button isn't suppose to be part of it. It looks perfect. Think I'll have to go and try it out now :)
