On a side note, my mother is really the one responsible for my crafting. She taught me how to sew when I was a kid, signed me up for arts and crafts camp, encouraged my wacky creativity and gave me my first (and only) sewing machine. So thanks Mom!We completely forgot to get her flowers, so I had to improvise. Some ribbon, a good tutorial and a little imagination later and voila: A lovely corsage for momma!
I think I will promise to start doing my own tutorials...but truely the link above is where I learned this fun skill. It's really perfect for making brooches or even a whole bouquet as shown. If you like crafting with ribbon, Offray's main "How To" site is also really wonderful. Enjoy!
