A very inexpensive way to make a beautiful package tie on or little girls hair bow, or a corsage for Mom :D This is from Wrights Ribbon, the link with directions is on my blog. I wired this one, and glued the beads on...the glue is still wet.lol.. The photo really doesn't do it justice, it's much prettier in person!

Did you do it like the instructions or did you add your own touch. The design looks different then the instructions. Tell me what you did different....PLEASE.....

Ya'll are so sweet! Leveta, I used a wide wire edged ribbon, like the $1 spools at the dollar stores, you need 3 yards. Instead of thread I used a thin floral wire just the way you'd use a needle. Also, I didn't add the bead in between each fold of ribbon. Instead I twisted the wire really tight, and then glued my gold beads in the center. Then you can wire the poinsettia on, or cut the wire shorter and tape it. You can fluff it up as much as you want, pinch the tips of each petal, that makes it really look like a flower.
I just noticed the original instructions called it a snowflake :D Oops....I see a poinsettia!
