Yea! My first craft challenge.  So exciting.

As I was stewing over what to use, what to use, what to use, I happened upon the motherload of satin ribbon on clearance at Wal-Mart--10 yd spools of yellow Offray ribbon for a dime apiece.  Perfect.  Still didn't know what to make, so I bought 30, thinking I could surely make something with 300 yds of ribbon.

After much deliberating, I decided to crochet myself a nice sunny bouquet of satin roses.  I used a pattern I found online, though since I printed it out awhile ago, I have no idea where I got it.  To make the leaves, I cut strips from some leftover green broadcloth-ish fabric I had and sort of winged it with a leaf shape.  I made the 3 leaves, wired them and the roses, wrapped the stems with floral tape and then wrapped more of the green fabric strips around the stems to hide the white tape, stuck them in one of the few vases I own, and voila! 

My cheery little flowers

Wow, they're great! And those spools were 10 cents each? The cheapest I've seen them is a quarter.. what a bargain!
