Kanzashi Flower Bow!

 Kanzashi Flower Bow!
I love bows and I love ribbon!
This flower is the perfect addition to any craft project.
Great for a ribbon bouquet, wreath, headband...
I used Offray satin ribbon sent to me in exchange for this post.
 The sky is the limit with Kanzashi, but here is what
you will need for this flower:

Six 4" squares of white satin ribbon
Six 2 1/4" squares of azalea satin ribbon
Eight 2 1/4" squares of forest satin ribbon
Eight 1 1/2" squares of lemon grass satin ribbon
Rhinestone button or something fun for the center
Hot glue and gun

First, run a bead of hot glue along 2 of the edges like this.
I'd recommend a low heat glue gun.
 Fold in half like a triangle.
 Add glue to one of the open edges
 And fold in half again.
 Repeat with all the pink ones,
Then put it inside the white and fold it one more time.
 Just like this.
 Then repeat 6 times.
 Now, use scissors to cut the tip off the back.
Then use a lighter to melt the edges back there.
 Repeat six times.
 Then do the same thing with the green leaves.
Then either sew, or just hot glue all the pieces together to form a 6 petal flower.
 Like this.
Hot glue it to a felt circle to keep it's strength.
Then glue the leaves in place.
 Add the rhinestone in the center and put it on a headband or clip!
Or make a whole bouquet!
Gorgeous and fun!
