Ribbon Loop Flower

Happy Saturday!

Hello everyone. Look what I first attempt at a ribbon loop flower.
I have been trying to make some different types of flowers and have been very unsuccessful. I have been watching videos, reading articles, and practicing, but none of them have come out the way I want them to. I decided to try a ribbon loop after I found a hair clip in my daughter's drawer. All the videos used 6 - 8 strips of ribbon, but I was determined to use just one long piece.

My daughter called it UGLY because the ribbon loops are different sizes, but I think it adds character...nice way to justify, huh? I added a stem and some leaves it is the best. : ) Yes, I am still justifying!
Although it is my first attempt I like the style and can see many more, especially since there are so many color and patterns of ribbon.

If you are interested in knowing how I made mine, just let me know. I can add a pictorial.


Be sure to come back tomorrow.

Stay Creative,


  1. I think it is pretty Georgiana!! I love the color combo:-)

  2. I think the flower is great! No flower has perfect petals! Great paper too!

  5. I think this is pretty Georgiana! I think creations are better when they're not 'perfect' - it shows they're handmade and gives them more character. :-)

  6. I think it is pretty. Not all flower have the same petal right, LOL.

  8. I think your ribbon flower turned out great! I think the different petal lengths make it more real!

  9. I've never seen a ribbon loop flower before-love it!!!! How clever! How is it attached in the center? Glue dots? I may need a tutorial, but I'd like to try this.

  10. I love the loops, G. They look great and they shouldn't all be the same! I'm not good at making flowers, but this way looks kinda easy. Need to try it. Great job with the whole card; love it!--Pat
