Gluber Glam

.Do you remember the other day when I told you about the new Glubers? Well, today I want to show you a glam project I created in a matter of 10 minutes....

You will need a Gluber disc and a length of box-pleated grobrain ribbon (the length will depend on the size of Gluber used) 
Remove one side of the film from your Gluber exposing the sticky disc.
Beginning on the outside of the disc adhere the box-pleated ribbon  around the disc.
 Continue working inside the outer row of ribbon towards the center of the disc.
 Continue to work inside until you have covered the gluber disc leaving a small dime size area uncovered and cut ribbon.
 You have created the base of your glammy flower!
 This is what it will look like on the back.
 I used the I-Top wonder tool to make a fabric covered button and adhered it to the center of the flower.  Ta-da.  What do you think?

Something fun to try.....

I have been wanting to create this block for some time.  I love each unique version I see.   For mine I decided to follow a traditional color wheel.

I printed my color wheel and used it to select my fabrics
Then got to work paper piecing

using the template found  here, and the great tutorial found here

Now I just need to decide what to do with it, any suggestions???

Oh, one more thing....if you would like to make a block like mine - post a comment including your email so I can contact you and I will send a fabric kit to the first 3 comments.
