Here is what the rest of the fabulous team came up with:
To create the ribbon flowers, I cut 6 small pieces of ribbon. I glued the ends together and arranged the ribbon petals underneath the button. Pretty simple. I think I will try this differently again. I love the idea, but not the execution so much. I think if the ribbon were thinner and I turned the fold, rather than just leave it, the petals would have more depth. Something worth exploring.
Still feeling lousy, but things are looking up! thanks for all the well-wishes and for stopping by!

I have no idea why the date and day on the top says Monday. I scheduled this with the correct date, but it would not post. Once I changed the post date to yesterday, it worked. Huh? :)
