Ribbon Flowers

Ok-disclaimer....these pictures are terrible! My camera is having issues. Thank goodness I bought the extended warranty. But for today....just try to imagine!!
The other day, I was wandering through a local craft store looking for a fun idea for an embellishment. There were the cutest ribbon flowers there and I decided it was a great idea to use up some ribbon scraps. My camera has been having issues, so these are terrible photos-but these flowers are pretty cute!

You will need:

4 pieces of ribbon (approx. 4 1/2 inches long-depending on size of flowers desired-I used 2 different coordinating ribbons)
1 7 mm brad (or button, etc. for center of flower)
small hole punch
adhesive-either the 714 or some glue dots

1. On the wrong side of each piece of the ribbon, put a length of glue or glue dot
2. Fold each ribbon into a circle, overlapping slightly and adhere (right sides out)
3. Using more adhesive, and making sure seams are hidden, make an X with 2 ribbon circles.
4. Repeat with other 2 pieces of ribbon.
5. WIth one more bit of adhesive, put 2 ribbon X's together, forming a flower.
6. With small hole punch, punch through all layers of ribbon and secure with 7 mm brad (making the center of the flower).
