Default Re: Is there a tut for this?

I would think, you should be able to make the petals by doing a single loop, then making the inner loops a little smaller.. then do a seal on them/hold them together with the wood burner, and then just run the need and thread through all five/six petals, pull tight and then tie off. There should be enough of a base in the center to glue the centerpiece on.
I don't know if it would be easier to stitch the petals together or glue them, but most tuts that I've seen on ribbon flowers suggest needle and thread.
I have no idea what size to cut the ribbons, but I would just play with it before cutting it off of the spool.
This is adorable! I can't wait to try it, but I have to focus on finishing other things first.. boo! lol
