Ribbon roses

I've made a few of these recently, they work great as hair accessories, broaches etc and are super easy and cheap to make!

What you need:
  • Scissors
  • Needle and matching thread
  • Ribbon approx 75cm (though you can use more/less for different size roses), you can use any width of ribbon, the thicker it is the bigger the flower. 
  • broach pin / hair slide etc
  • 15 minutes
1. Start by tying the thread to the end of the ribbon

2. Fold the verticle edge down to meet the horizonal edge, twist together and put a few stitches in place to keep it tight. This will form the center of your rose
