These are just a few samples of flowers I
Option 1: As I have done with these flowers,

Poinsettia in Ribbon Stitch
You will require approximately .3 Metre of 7 mm. Red Ribbon
for each flower, .2 Metre of 7 mm. Green Ribbon,
Gold Seed Beads, Metallic Gold Thread.
Step 1: Mark out a circle 2 cms across and small dot
in the centre.
Step 2: Place Ribbon Stitches around this circle.
Some to the outline and a few outside of the circle.
overlapping the first petals, and of varying lengths.
You may also have these slightly puffed up in
comparison to flat against the fabric.
Place a few leaves in the green ribbon in between
|This is just a simple daisy in Variegated Gold 7 mm. Ribbon|
A gold bead in the centre and two Ribbon Stitch Leaves.
Step 4: Add the gold seed beads in the centre.
And for a little more sparkle I have added a Fly
Stitch in the gold metallic thread around the petals.
These can also be created in Cream Ribbon with
Green Leaves and Gold Beads and Thread.
