Start with a 12″ ribbon piece. This length is more than you will need but a good practice length.
Fold in half and hold loose ends with thumb & index finger.
Insert opposite index finger into loop and twist. The tighter the twist, the smaller the flower.
Fold twisted ribbon in half, securing loop and two ends with thumb & index finger. Remove index finger from loop and it will twist onto itself.
While holding loose ends tight, slide loop end toward the top. Rose will form.
Glue remaining “tail” from loop to underside to secure. Cut off loose ends or allow to dangle.
