Default Need ideas for a special request...

Okay, so I have a lady who wants me to match flowers to her three girls Easter dresses. Each of the dresses have pink, black, and white. I know what to do for 2 of the flowers, but the last one I am stumped. It is for her youngest who is 3. She wants something more girly and she LOVES korkers. But she doesn't want just a korker, she wants a flower. She wants a flower with black, white, and pink maybe with korkers coming out of the bottom. Any ideas?

I was just thinking of making the cute ribbon flowers (the free instructions from TRR) but I haven't gotten that far plus I don't know if she would want that. She says she likes everything I make and trusts me to come up with something cute! AAH! I have got to get this one right!

I would recommend the flower loop bow from TRR that you're thinking of... one layer each of pink, white & black: or mix the colors in each layer. Maybe a white pearl or beaded center flower for the bow center. Maybe green korkers or spikes or whatever for leaves underneath.

Just my thoughts. How nice that you have someone who trusts you so completely to come up with something special!

Thanks! I like the idea of having green korkers for the "leaves". Great idea. I guess I will have to learn pretty quickly how to do the flower loop bow! Thanks for the ideas...

Good Luck! I think that will be a pretty bow. You'll have to post pics when you finish!

Maybe you could do a pink, white and black korker and then put a jewel in the middle and press it down - kinda like those RR ones, but just made with a korker instead?

I just got through making some ribbon flower bows for Easter too! I used Lynn's waterlilly directions to help make the flowers. I tucked korkers underneath it. That I made into a little clip.

Then...I made a boutique bow with spikes (matching). I put a loop of ribbon to slide the korker/flower clippie into. My thinking was that the mom can get 3 bows out of it. 1) Big, frou-frou Easter bow. 2) Korker/flower clippie, 3) Boutique bow w/ spikes.

Hope that makes sense. It's pretty stinkin' cute, if I do say so myself. Plus it feels like good value since the mom gets 3 bows for the price of 1.

We are all workin' on the same stuff!

I like the sounds of your first one (this lady doesn't want too fru fru). Do you have a photo? I forgot about the waterlily. I should try that.

I played around with ribbon tonight and I didn't like how things turned out. I am frustrated. I looked at my notes of what she wanted and realized that she also wants a black, pink, and white flower (silk flower). I don't have any black flowers. What am I going to do? Plus, I only have two days left to get ready for this huge bow party. I need to work on stocking up my inventory instead of playing around!! I am frustrated right now. I think I just might make a few things and give her a choice and hope she likes some of them!

have you looked in the scrapbooking section lately? they have a lot of silk flowers all taken apart. Maybe they have the colors you're looking for. It might give you some inspiration.
Sorry you're frustrated! I hate when people want black! I never know what to do with black! I'll let you know if I come up with anything. Good luck!

maybe you could incorporate the black as the bow center to the ribbon flower. Did you try the totts ribbon flower and not like it? maybe if you post pics of the other two flowers, we could come up with an idea to match? GL
