How To Make Ribbon Roses
1. Cut two 1/2-yard (.46 m) lengths of 1/2-inch wide ribbon (1.27 cm).
2. Align the ribbons at one end, perpendicular to one another. Hand-stitch or glue the pieces to hold them together.
3. Fold the ribbons across one another, alternating each length, to form a spring. Continue to the end of the ribbon lengths.
4. Hold one ribbon end between your first two fingers. Gently pull the other ribbon away from your hand, gathering the ribbon folds to form the rosette.
