Silk Ribbon Roses on Joyous NotionsIn my mind, nothing says springtime better than blooming flowers and landscapes dotted with green. This week I went on a hunt to find you DMC inspired flowers and spring landscapes!

Learn to make Silk Ribbon Roses on Joyous Notions using ribbon and DMC floss in a nice spring green.

Remember that you’ll need a needle with a larger eye to work with ribbon, likeĀ our DMC chenille needles.
