2 yards of ribbon (I used grosgrain)
Fold the ribbon in an accordion style. You want the total length of each fold to equal the diameter of the final boutonniere. In my case, I made each fold 2.5″ and the final boutonniere is 2.5″ across.
Sew a button over the tacking stitch to finish off the boutonniere. While stitching the button on, stitch slightly outside of the initial center tacking stitch. This will hold the fanned out folds in place.
And for less than $5 and 10 minutes of work, you have a beautiful and stylish boutonniere!
Thank you to BrideTide for this idea!
