When I saw THIS card by Debby on her blog lime doodle, I just had to try to replicate it. (I love this blog, by the way.) She used a die for cutting out felt for the ribbon, but I didn't have that so I improvised with 5/8" grosgrain ribbon instead. I also love how the embossed card stock is the focal image of the card. Need to do that more.
To make the bow:
Cut a strip of ribbon about 4" in length and cut a "v" in each end.
I cut another strip of ribbon about 5" in length and made a loop. I used a glue dot to make sure the loop stayed attached.
Place loop on top of the flat strip and tie a piece of linen thread around the two pieces of ribbon.
Add the button and tie the thread into a bow. Use a glue dot to make sure the button is secure and does not wobble.

Sorry the picture has such a blue-ish tinge to it. Not sure what happened.
Thanks for stopping by.
