Grungy Jute Rope and Burlap Flower Tutorials for Really Reasonable Ribbon

I'm back to share the double grungy flower tutorial I promised you earlier this month when I posted this "My Hero" page. I love coming up with grungy masculine flowers I can use on my guy pages and want to share a couple with you today featuring natural fibers from the Really Reasonable Ribbon Store seen on this layout I recently created for Donna Salazar Designs. For more details and close-ups of this layout go here

Grungy Coiled Jute Rope Flower Tutorial

Step 1. Punch one circle for each flower from coordinating cardstock. For this natural color jute rope, I used kraft cardstock. For the jute rope flower I used a 1 inch circle.

Step 2. Apply Fabric Glue to top of cardstock circle.

Step 3. Coil the jute rope in your fingers until it is approximately the same diameter as your 1 inch circle.

Step 4. Lay the coil on the glue covered cardstock circle.

Step 5. Wrap the end to the back and glue in place.

Step 6. Add small screw or other embellishment to center of flower. 

Step 7. Apply black ink to flower.

Grungy Rolled Burlap Flower Tutorial

Step 1. Punch one circle for each flower from coordinating cardstock. For this natural color 
Burlap Woven Ribbon, I used kraft cardstock punched with a 1.5 inch circle.

Step 2. Glue the end of the Burlap Woven Ribbon to the center of the cardstock circle.

Step 3. Twist the burlap ribbon and coil around the center, gluing down as you go.

Step 4. Continue to twist, coil and glue until the entire cardstock circle is covered.

Step 5. Wrap the end to the back and glue in place.

Step 6. Add small vintage nuts and washers or other embellishments to center of flower. 

Step 7. Apply black ink to flower.
