So, i saw this very cute belt on urban outfitters... but it's $20. the thing is, it looks like it's just ribbon and stuff. so, i'm wondering, maybe someone could figure out how to make it and them post a tuotorial? i'm really really really bad with making flowers out of ribbon...

This is the closest tutorial I could find on ribbon flowers...

Then I guess you would sew it onto a ribbon belt.

I guess its a bit much, but for someone who is pretty new to sewing, and is in love with a belt, its not too bad!  hehe
