While some things come and go from the inventory at Dollar Tree, there are some things that you can find on every visit.  One of the items that they perpetually have on the shelves is wire-edged ribbon.  This idea from the Country Woman Magazine website, sent in by reader Bonnie, uses sheer, wire-edged ribbon to create pretty flowers with beaded centers.  You can mount them on pin backs, attach them to hair elastics, or even make a bouquet!   [how to make ribbon flower pins]
