Easy Flower tutorial using new pleated Maya Road ribbon....

I love everything Maya Road, and when I saw their CHA blog here, they had made the cutest flowers with their new pleated ribbons. I did it a little differently than they did - here's my version:

You just need a few things - Maya Road pleated ribbon, some type of really tacky glue (I used Aleene's Tacky Glue), and a center for your flower (I used a Maya Road resin flower).
First, I cut a length of ribbon about 1 foot long and put some glue on the second segment. This is to start the center of your flower. Then I folded the first segment onto the second and let it dry about 10 minutes.

I then put a line of glue across the bottom of the ribbon (the seam side) and started wrapping the ribbon around the center.

When I got to the end of the ribbon I let the flower set until the glue was dry. I squished the flower down slightly while the glue was still slightly wet to make the flower stay open wider.
After the flower was dry I attached the center piece.
I made two of the flowers (one in another color) and made a card with them!
You can find the new pleated Maya Road ribbon in the YourScrapbookStash.com store here! There are so many colors to choose from - you should get them all!! And don't forget about our two contests - all the info is here. You only have until September 15th so hurry and join the fun!!
