Ever since I read this blog post I have wanted to make these delightful flowers, but have not had luck finding ribbon worthy of the task. This weekend I took my mom out to Havanna, FL to visit the antique stores (a fun day for you Tallahassee locals.) There is a eclectic little shop there that sells ribbon and buttons and the end product was this!
Cute huh? Can't wait to wear it. In my hair. On my sweater. On my purse. I see more of these in my future. Also, a very good reason to keep extra buttons when you buy clothes, that is where the gem in the middle came from.
Not to mention, is this dress form cute or what? $9 at Ross. Score.
