I just completed a swap where we were supposed to use an accessory like a brad, button or ribbon in a different way that we usually do. It was not to reinvent the wheel but to stretch your creativity a bit. I had a hard time but when I came up with my idea I loved it. I of course had to use ribbon because it is my favorite accessory. I had found a way to make a mini “origami” rose out of the ribbon that you use to wrap presents. I am not sure if it is real origami or if that is just what that person was calling it. It took a while to figure out how to do it because the instructions were written with no pictures but I finally got it. I am going to have to make more of them to use to make some more hair bows for my girls. Back to the card. Here is what it looks like.
I was so proud of my little rose I wanted it to be the star of the card and went pretty simple with the rest of it. I had a hard time trying to find a sentiment that I wanted to put on it so I used one that could go a few ways, either congrats or thank you.
