Summer is the perfect time to create bright and playful ribbon flowers! Today I'm going to show you how to make a fun and easy ribbon loopy flower clippie with a rhinestone center that looks a lot more complicated than it really is!



Supplies Needed:
3/8" Grosgrain Ribbon
I am using 117 Light Pink, 150 Pink and 156 Hot Pink
Needle and Thread
Hot Glue Gun
Rhinestone Embellishment
Alligator clip
Scissors or Wood Burner
Lighter
Small piece of felt


Step 1: Choose 3 colors for your flowers. Cut 8 strips of each color. I cut light Pink at 2", Pink at 2.5" and Hot Pink at 3". Using a wood burner is the best way to quickly cut and seal these! If you are using scissors heat seal all of your ribbon ends.

Step 2: Thread your needle and tie a secure knot. Line up 1 piece of each color and thread them onto the needle, with the longest piece at the bottom. Make sure your pieces are lined up evenly on the needle.

Step 3: Loop the other end of your top ribbon onto the needle, loop the middle ribbon onto the needle and do the same with the last ribbon. The first petal of your flower is complete!

Step 4: Continue looping your ribbons onto the needle. You can slide the finished loops off of the needle and onto the thread - just make sure you knot at the bottom is secure!

Step 5: You should now have an 8 petal flower. Pull the two ends of your thread together and tie them off. You can play with the petals and get them exactly how you want before clipping your thread. Don't pull the thread too tightly or the petals will be smashed together.

Step 6: Cut a small square of felt and glue it onto the center of the front of the flower. This step is not necessary but will help in securing your rhinestone center.

Step 7: Hot glue your rhinestone center on top of the piece of felt. Don't use too much glue - you only need a dab!

Step 8: Line your alligator clip with matching 3/8 ribbon. Check out my other tutorial for steps on how to line your clip. Now glue your clip to the back of your flower - Again you only need a dab of glue!

Ta-da! Your ribbon flower is finished! Feel free to mix it up by changing the lengths of your loops or adding more loops! These would also be gorgeous with a printed ribbon for the outside loops! I'd love to see what you create in the comments section below!
