Jennifer, our guest designer recently learned one technique to make ribbon rose flowers. She shared the tutorial with her readers over at http://www.theeverydayscrapper.com and wanted to give a little love to our followers as well. Jennifer says they are easy to make and like Simon Cowell says, gives any project that "WOW" factor. Thanks Jennifer, we can't wait to try these ribbons.
•Ribbon, about 1 yard
•Glue Gun and/or Fabri-Tac adhesive
•Gems or Buttons (optional)
Roll one end of the ribbon into a tube, about 3 layers of ribbon thick.
Secure with a little glue if you like.
Fold the ribbon to the outside and start wrapping around the tube.
Continue folding back the ribbon every 1/2 turn or so.
You should see the rosebud starting to form.
*The following photos displays how the flower should look after each several rotations.
Continue with your ribbon until the end or until it looks full.
Turn the rose over and secure the back with glue.
Putting glue under the folds if need be.
You don’t wanna do all that work and then have the rose fall apart.
Add buttons or gems to the center of your rose if you like.
Add to your project.
