I finally got my Fun Flowers Bigz L Die after a month. It was back order. I guess SU! didn't expect this die to be so popular. Love this die! The shape with the sentiment on it is the Top Note Die. I die cut the paper with the Top Note Die and then flip the paper around so that the long end is on the short end of the die and ran it through the Big Shot machine again.
Thank you for stopping by to visit my blog today! I really do appreciate it.

Can you guess how I got the pink card stock shape for the sentiment? I used the pillow box die for the look. Somehow my die is different from the one in the catalogue. The two side inside flaps from my die are just 1/4" wide but the one in the catalogue are the full ones. hmm...I wonder why is that? Might have to call SU! about that.
Thank you for stopping by today! Have a great day!

Here is a tutorial I promised to make. I guess most of you are visual type just like me. I know words just doesn't describe most things. Especially when it comes to paper crafting. So here it is.
Close up of the finished flowers.
You'll need matching colour 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, a 1-1/4" circle of So Saffron card stock (use a bigger circle if you want a bigger flower and if you are using a wider ribbon) and Sticky Strip or Sticky Sheet. Stampin'Up!'s Sticky Strip or Sticky Sheet works best with ribbon.
Cover the 1-1/4" circle with Sticky Strip or Sticky Sheet.
Remove the plastic of the Sticky Strip and stick the end of the ribbon in the middle of the circle. I leave my ribbon on the spool so I wont waste any ribbon. I hate wasting things so therefore I keep the left overs and now I have many, many scraps all over the place. That's kind of annoying too. Anyway, back to the tutorial.
Twist the ribbon (my youngest helped me hold the circle while I take a picture, you need two hands to do this ribbon flower).
Twist and wind the ribbon at the same time around the circle and pushing the ribbon down as you go to make sure the ribbon stick to the circle.
Here is more ribbon on the circle.
All covered up circle.
Snip the ribbon off.
Bring the ribbon end to the back and stick it down with a Sticky Strip.
Here is the finished flowers on a card. The bigger flower I used 1-3/4" circle and 5/8" grosgrain ribbon and the small flower I used 1-1/4" circle and 1/4" grosgrain ribbon.
Hope you enjoyed the tutorial. I'm going to link this card to So Shelli-blog Shelli Gardner CEO of Stampin'Up! April challenge.
Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping by!

I finally tried to make this style of ribbon flower. What do you think? Very simple to make. I punch a round circle piece of card stock and add sticky strip to it. Next, use a seam binding ribbon, start in the middle, twisted it and wind it around the circle card stock. Keep the ribbon on the spool to get the length you need. If you cut it then it might be too short or too long. You don't want to waste ribbon if you don't need to. If you want to me to make a tutorial just let me know.
Thank you for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!

Thank you everyone for playing along and all the feed back for my question. It really means a lot to me that you all took the time to leave a comment. I'll keep doing what I'm doing right now and I'll make more masculine and kiddie cards. Those 2 are my weakest in creating but it is nice to make more more often.
