quick + cute

This post is going to be quick which can also be said about this simple craft idea.
Ribbon flags. I threw these together for Lola's baby blessing on Sunday. I needed something... anything... and I remembered seeing these somewhere online for a wedding. So I grabbed some ribbon, buttons, rhinestones and lollipop sticks. As much as I wished these were lollipops on top the ribbons would do.
Gather ribbon, buttons, rhinestones and lollipop sticks. Cut about 6 inches of ribbon.
Fold in half. Loop one end and pull the other end through.
Cut ends to look like flags. That's it!
It was so quick I didn't even give Collin the chance to say anything like, 'why I are you making those'... 'waste of time'... blah blah blah... ;)
I added the jar to my mantle with the jars of hearts.

Happy Friday from us.

I am so glad to hear that even Collin gets after you for making little things like this. I'm constantly hearing things like "why are you making that?" and "what is the purpose of this?" from my DH who sometimes just doesn't get cute! :)

So after you loop the ribbon on did you just add buttons and bling to the top?
