Easy Folded Rose Tutorial

Photobucket

Thread a needle with matching thread, knot the bottom, and set aside.

Photobucket

Unroll about 12" of ribbon. You can work with it still attached to the roll to conserve ribbon.

About 6" in, fold the ribbon at a 45° angle. It should look like an L.

Photobucket

Next, fold the other side of the ribbon across the middle, again in a 45° angle.

Photobucket

Continue folding the ribbons across each other until you come to the end of cut side of the ribbon.

Here is the other side of the folded ribbon.

And the side view.

Photobucket

Grasp the ribbon with your thumb in up in the corner of the ends of the ribbon folds, with the short end on top.

Photobucket

Grasp the long end of the ribbon with your other hand.

Photobucket

Pull the long end of the ribbon, while holding the short end in place.

Photobucket

Insert your needle into the middle of your ribbon flower and draw from top to bottom.

Photobucket

Continue stitching through your flower for several stitches, bottom to top, then top to bottom, being careful to catch all the folds of the flower to secure it.

Photobucket

End on the bottom of the flower. Knot thread and clip off the ends.

Photobucket

Secure to project. (I use hot glue.)
