Shimelle's example showed pleated ribbon, but I stepped a little out of the box and gathered mine instead. I liked the look of the gathers, so I made my ribbon flowers the same way. I used a 5" piece of ribbon, ran a gathering stitch along one edge, pulled it tight and added a button.
I like this layout, but it's not my favorite. I think I should have stopped adding stuff long before I stopped. Oh well...still love the photo (us 3 at our niece's wedding this past weekend) and continuing the color scheme for my "Celebrate Life" album.
