Flower Love

Well I was lucky enough to get to attend CHA this year! I worked at the Maya Road Booth and wanted to share this amazing EASY flower in 10 minutes. Using the Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive

Firstly a big thanks to Maya Road and the the lovely Lisa Pace for standing all day and making these for the make and takes.

Items needed are as follows:

1. Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive

2. Pearls or embellishment for centre accent

3. small piece of Chipboard

4. Pleated Ribbon. This is Maya Road Pleated Satin Trim around 12-15inches(depending on the fullness you want)

5. A pin if you want to make a brooch

First cut the ribbon as per above, makes the flower fuller.

Apply the Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive to chipboard

Start winding the ribbon from the outside.

Add more Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive as you go around.

When you have finished with the ribbon it should look like this.

I finished the centre of mine with pearls. I added more Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive then put the pearls on. And if you wish to make brooches you can add a pin to the back.

Thats it from me
