August Challenge

Design Team Member Sara submitted this layout and tutorial for the August Flower Challenge. She said, "On this layout I created the peach flower and purple flower out of double stitched ribbon.
Here is the demo:
Selecte a wide double stitched ribbon and pick out 2 stitches from the
same side on both ends.
Pull the stitches and gather the ribbon to the middle so it scrunches

Pull the ends as tight as you want and tie them and then cut off the
excess string.
Here is the end result! Embellish it up with a center and you have a
beautiful flower every time!
