You Will Need:
• Carrot (room temperature)
• Cutting board
• Paring knife
• Toothpick

Directions for Ribbon Flower #1
1. Slice several strips of carrot to a 1/8" thickness. You can use a Mandolin or electric slicer.
2. Using the Paring knife, trim 3 slices to be rectangle -- 1"x7"
3. Next, cut a slit lengthwise in the slice at an angle, about 2-3" long. Turn carrot over and repeat on the other side.
4. Repeat this step for all 3 slices.
5. Now, take one of the slices and curl into a loop and secure the two ends together with a toothpick.
6. Repeat this step with the other two slices, securing them to the same toothpick, staggering the loops to look like a flower.
7. Finally, take one of the cherries and place in the center on the toothpick.
8. Place in cold water to rejuvenate and open up the ribbons on the flower.
