Total Time: 35 minutes

Step 1: Use a satin ribbon

A Section of White Ribbon

Take a 4-inch (10 cm) piece of satin ribbon to create a luxurious bow petal. Gently scorch the edges with a lighter.

Step 2: Work with the reverse side

Curved Side of the Tape

Put the tape face down and fold the first side into the corner.

Step 3: Make a fold

Angle of the Tape with a Pin

Fold this edge again and temporarily fasten with a pin.

Step 4: Fold on the other side

Folded Tape on the Other Side

Fold the second edge of the tape in the same way.

Step 5: Make a second corner

Tape with Two Pins

Then make another fold on the same side and fasten with a pin.

Step 6: Prepare the needle and thread

Inverted Craft Blank

Before doing this, position the blank petal in front of you. All folds should be at the bottom and the corners at the top. Sew the 2 bottom sides of the resulting square with a basting stitch. Insert the needle from the wrong side to the right.

Step 7: Fasten the pieces together

Stitched Craft Blank

Sew half of the blank.

Step 8: Create a petal

Satin Ribbon Petal

Gently pull the thread to tighten the petal. Fix the thread and cut it off. You should have one petal for the future bow, as shown in the photo.

Step 9: Prepare 12 petals

Step 10: Use felt

The Circle of Felt

Cut a circle 1.8 inches (or 4.5 centimeters) in diameter from a piece of white felt.

Step 11: Place the petals on the blank

Glue the petals to the felt circle with hot glue.

Place the 8 petals in a circle in the first row.

Step 13: Make a second row of petals

Five Petals

Glue 5 blanks together to make a second row of petals.

Step 14: Connect all the petals

Two Rows of Petals Together

Glue the second row on top of the first one.

Step 15: Use artificial jewelry
