Closeup of the largest sentiment and shows the wonderful twill ribbon, the same twill as the flower embellishment. The flower is created by running a stitch along the ribbon edge, pulling tightly to gather. The orange twill is then tacked in a circular fashion to resemble a flower, the yellow twill is handled the same except not near as much ribbon is utilized and the green is stitched into a bud. All twill layers are stacked and stitched together as shown, then glued onto the decor "K" piece.
I positioned a few sentiments on the "K" in light ink colors to blend in with the paper. Can you find all of them? This is such fun and adds another special touch to the decor piece. I painted the back and edges with white acrylic, adhered the paper with scortape, then sanded the edges. I then went back and painted the edges again for a more finished look!
