Made it Myself Monday Linky Party Week 5

Good Morning All My Crafty Friends,
Welcome back for another Made it Myself Monday Linky Party. Just a quick thanks to Alex for arranging this for us. If you would like to participate you can by clicking the below link and linking up your project.

So you know how most crafters hate to throw things aways because we know we can always find a use for it later on, well that's where my project comes in. I had some ribbon that had the wire on the edges. I took the wire out because I didn't want the ribbon to be stiff and I didn't want to throw it out so I was thinking what could I do with it. Here's what I came up with. 

I made a beaded flower. Not bad for my first try. The petals are not all the same size but the more I look at it the more I like them all different. I think I may be making more of these and using them as embellishments for my mini albums and my layouts. Quick dry 450 will hold this for the mini albums and a glue dot should work fine on a layout. The only materials I used was a piece of wire, seed beads, and a button. After looking at the flower I might just add another smaller button on top of this one to cover the wire. 

Please leave a comment and be sure to link up your project. Hope everyone has a great week of crafting! 
See you all next week for another Made It Myself Monday!
