I was lucky enough to attend the Craft and Hobby Association show this year again, including an exclusive Blogger party where we got to mingle with some amazing brands and learn about some new products. One of the products I received were these cute pull ribbon flowers from Little B. When I pulled them out of the container, I knew immediately what I was going to make… a ribbon craft flower arrangement with real branches from my backyard.

These flowers are addicting to make! They are so easy and so fun. I counted ten scallops across and cut. Fold it in half as shown.
Look for the ends of each string and pull. You will see the flower naturally form.
Tie the two strings together in a knot. Make sure to pull the string taught as you go to get the knot as close to the flower as possible. Cut the excess string close to the knot.
Aren’t they pretty? I decided to make my blooms on my tree pink and yellow, which will be great for both Valentine’s Day and springtime.
I found this branch in my backyard, which was perfect for this project. I soaked it in water and then let it dry overnight.
I originally tried to attach the flowers with decorative Washi tape. It worked, but it was a little hard to keep the flowers on, and you couldn’t see the tape anyway. So, a reverted to using a hot glue gun which cut the time in half and made it SO much easier.
Here are a couple after photos. Love it Looks great in my Patron bottle vase!
