How to make a heated flower

 Cut circles with punch, i used color paper to match my ribbon, apply double side score tape to 1 side, cut ribbon about 20 inches long, cut little snips along ribbon do not go all the way thru ribbon.
 apply notched ribbon onto taped circle using a fold as you go around the circle
 continue around circle until all filled up, once you get to the middle i did use a few extra glue dots to fill in on the top.
 this is what it looks like all glued down before heating with heat gun.
 Heat up heat gun and take a tweezers or a poke tool (i could not find my tweezer) and heat around flower it will start to melt, be careful it is HOT, move heat gun until you get the desired look you like.
 this is the little red one i started
the finished results add a little bling to the center or a button or nothing at all.
Type of Ribbon i used was the silky kind i have not tried any other kind.
