Ribbon leaves tip

Hi there! Is everybody enjoying Tuesday? I surely am :-) !!!
I decided to post a tip about how to create quickly a ribbon leave as I made on my "Special Moments" LO created for My Creative Scrapbook.

All you need is a pair of scissors, ribbon and a lighter!
Cut a piece of the ribbon and then cut the two corners (See photo above). Fold the ribbon in two and hold it with your left hand. Then with the lighter melt the edges so they can stick to each other...be careful not to burn your fingers!!!

This is the result. You can then glue it underneath your flower!

I hope you enjoyed this mini tutorial!
Have a great Tuesday!
