How to make flowers/bows from silk material?

A question about : How to make flowers/bows from silk material?

Hi, I've brought lots of silk (well fake silk) with the plan to make fabric bows and flowers to decorate Christmas presents with, only it don't know how! I thought YouTube would be a big help but it just finds silk ribbon flowers and bows.

I don't have a sewing machine so I can't hem things. Has anyone made flowers, bows or any kind of decoration from silky material?

Ideas please

A question about : Ideas please

Not sure if this is in the right place but as sort of crafty,here goes.

School my grandsons attend is having a Christmas fayre in November. They will be having a room where the children can buy a present for mum/dad and it will only cost Ј1.

Can you give me any ideas of things which could be made for this please, nothing expensive obviously.

The PTA suggested going to pound shops and picking up things which are 2 for Ј1, but I would like some more unusual things.

Any ideas gratefully received.
