It is Friday...are you glad? It is also the 15th which means RRR is having another fun challenge...this time flowers with ribbon. I decided to join in. I can never resist a bloom. I thought I would do a quick little tutorial for you showing my flower layers and how I went about decking my bag out. The middle layer of the flower is a technique I have posted before where you simply roll and twist the flower. You can make them small or humongous if you like. I used the red polka dot double ruffle ribbon which manipulated really well. Very easy to use and made a nice full bloom. I layered it with some vintage swiss dot fabric I diecut flowers from.
Once I had my bloom ready the fun part of gussying up my bag began. I used some cottagey floral papers and washi tape. I had a bit of crepe paper fringe left and used it. From there I adhered my bloom using hot glue and than went about stamping my mason jar tag. I had fun revisiting this stamp set from Pti. It is one of my favorites. I also used an older mini stamp set from Maya road. Once I had it adhered I topped it off with some red seam binding and cherry bakers twine . I love the color combo....my favorite. My bedroom has a lot of this and I never tire of it. Well I am off to spend time with my son. I get him to myself today and I think we will go do something simple but ...maybe ice cream and book hunting? Hope you enjoy! Happy weekend! Cherry
