Making ribbon flowers

I have a little technique that adds a bit of a different dimension to your layouts and it uses ribbon!

Here I just made a simple card and I have ribbon, a paper piercer, brads and scissors.

First, cross the ribbon; making a "v".

To make that "v" hold, place a brad through the 2 layers.

Using your paper piercer you can make a hole where you want the top of the heart to be.

You then flip over the ribbon to create the rest of the heart.

Secure by using brads.

Here is a layout I did using this same technique but the ribbon was thinner (and I think looks a bit better).

Hope you enjoyed it!
