Satin Ribbon Flowers

Making ribbon flowers has always fascinated me and after learning the basics I have tried my hand successfully to make gifts for friends and family. Making ribbon flowers have been a source of pleasure for me and a way of relaxing my tired mind as the poet has said, “A thing of beauty is a joy for ever.”

Ribbon Rose.

Instructions:

Take 24 inches of 1inch wide satin ribbon =1×24.

Use needle and thread and do running stitch from one side to the other like a U.

Tie one end into a knot and pull the thread from the other side to create gathers as shown in the picture.

Hold the knot in your hand and roll around it the rest of the gathered length of the ribbon. Knot should remain in the center of the rose.

Arrange the layers at the back of the flower and use the needle and thread to secure them.

Enjoy your ribbon rose!
