Now that you are all stocked up with homemade glue spots using last week’s tip by Heather Conklin, I want to show you an amazing way to use those jumbo-sized glue spots. Heather shows us how to make a darling ribbon flower embellishment.
1. After creating the perfect-sized glue spot and letting it dry, tie a knot in a ribbon. I just left the ribbon on the spool, and cut when I knew the flower was almost done.
2. Start folding and sticking the ribbon, while wrapping it around and around the glue circle. Whenever you need to, smash the ribbon into the glue.
3. Slowly peel off the glue flower, stick the edge of the ribbon onto the back of the glue spot.
4. STICK YOUR AWESOMENESS SOMEWHERE!
This glue is über-sticky, so make sure that you put it exactly where you want it.
Thank you once again Heather for this amazing, money-saving technique! I know I for one can’t wait to get making some of these adorable ribbon flowers. Be sure to check back next How To’sday for another great flower technique, this time brought to you by our friend Jessica Laureano.
