Automatically translated by machine. Today I'm going to show you how to make a
simple ribbon rose. This is a companion video for the photo tutorial
that I already made. You'll need some ribbon, needle and thread.
Fold the end of the ribbon over at a 45 degree angle so it makes a triangle.
Leave a little trail at the bottom to form the stem of the rose.
Stitch it in place along the bottom. Roll the tail end left until you reach the
edge of the fold and stitch it in place at the bottom.
This forms the centre of the flower. Fold the rest of the ribbon backwards so the
tail points down again. Continue rolling the centre of the flower
towards the new folded part until you reach the end of the fold.
This folding and wrapping forms the petals. Stitch it in place.
The rest of the flower is made up with the same technique.
Fold the ribbon backwards, roll it up and stitch in place.
It can take a little while to get the hang of because you need to hold the folds in place
while stitching them. Make sure the points of your petals are evenly
spaced around the flower, you don't want all of the petals pointing in the same direction.
The step by step photo tutorial that I made is linked in the description so make sure
you take a look! Continue folding and rolling the flower until
you run out of ribbon or you feel it's big enough.
I tend to do a couple of folds before I stitch because it's much quicker that way.
Lastly, fold any left over ribbon so it points down the stem.
Stitch all the way down and tie it off. That's really it!
Once you understand the folding motion it's very quick and easy to make these.
You can add a bobby pin or a hair clip or use many of them to decorate a dress.
