Wired Ribbon Flower AKA Tutu Cute Bloom

Hello again my fair ladies....just wanted to share a quick and easy flower tut....was playing around with some craft ribbon I bought for Easter and happened on to this fun little flower...
what you will need...

circle punch, I used a 1" (or cut with cricut)
card stock
hot glue
wired craft ribbon 2 1/2" in width
assorted buttons
I found tons of this craft ribbon in lots of spring colors at the local all for a dollar store...

Cut two pieces of ribbon 1 @ 20 inches and 1 @ 10 inches...
I found it helpful to pull a bit of wire from each end and fold it over, this way I didn't 'lose' it in the ribbon.
Start gathering the ribbon into a circle...
Once you have it as tight as it will go tie off the wire...

Do this to both sides, trim the wire...this is what you will end up with...
Now...repeat this on the other piece of ribbon...

Grab your card stock circle...

Add some hot glue to the edge of the circle and attach the larger ribbon ring...
Glue the smaller ribbon ring into the center....add the button...and viola...it's that simple....
Gotta be one of the simplest flowers I've ever made....wouldn't they look super cute on a headband for a wee princess???

You know me though....these will be turning up on one of my layouts real soon...LOL! I think they look like a little mini tutu....hence the name....

Hope you enjoyed this quick little tutorial....take care until I see you again!




  1. Your ribbon button accents are adorable-- that hot pink polka dot one is too much!!! I can wait to see the LO you do with them!
