Okay, so this idea has been percolating in my mind for a while. The idea was a combination of an idea of what DD came up with, and searching creative blogs at 1:30am! so here it is:
I don't know if you can tell from the pictures but the cream colored ribbon is gathered and the green ribbon is sewed to it. The flower is paper and hand cut (my tutorial given here). And the button is sewed on then sewn to the ribbon on the back.
pattern paper: Fancy Pants
button: Fancy Pants
ink: cat eye chalk
silk flower: bazzill
twine: dollar bin Target
stiffen stuff (this gives it just a little stiffness)
