Just Because!

See how to make this beautiful card!





Good Morning!

This is Jen from 3 Cats and a Bug.



The other day I was looking at Details by Sandy's blog and seen her ribbon flower post. Since I have no shortage of ribbon I decided to try it. Some of my wired ribbons were too firm to do this with, but the lighter weight ribbon worked great! (Unlike Sandy's flowers, I only used one piece of ribbon.)





I started out with a 12 inch piece of light weight ribbon






Since my fingers don't work like they use to, I used my craft tweezers to grab hold of the wire on one side








and gathered the ribbon,








then I did the same thing to the other side.








Once I had both sides gathered the way I wanted them, I twisted the two wires together and cut off the excess wire.













Then I took the other side of the ribbon and did the same thing.






I punched out a 1 inch circle and hot glued it inside the flower. (A larger circle would have worked better if I had a larger punch lol)






I added double sided tape to the paper circle so I could attach it to my project.






To finish up the flower, I took two buttons and hot glued them to the top of the flower.











The "Just Because" comes from the Cricut Cartridge by Provocraft called Stamping Solutions.
