...the ribbon rose tutorial!
I apologise in advance for some of the angles - I had to rope Stu into being cameraman!
Anyhoo, I know it's too late for Valentines day but they can be used on Anniversary cards, Wedding cards (How cute would it be to do a white rose!) and you can even make a few and put them on 'sticks' to make a bunch of flowers. The possibilities are endless...
Would love to see yours, if you have a go please leave a comment with a link for us all to see!
So here goes...
Start off with a length of ribbon (Mine is approx. 15 inches)
You need to apply a little pressure with your thumb to make sure it pulls straight.
Once the folds are all joined, you can start to work with them to make 'petals' and manoeuvre them into shape.
When I'm happy with the finished look I just very roughly tack it with a few stitches.
(And I mean roughly, I'm rubbish with a needle and thread!)
All you need to do then is conceal the ends in your project and your all done
I hope that has got you wanting to try one, they really are so so easy and you can use up bits of ribbon you've got left over by making small ones.
Thank you for stopping by.
