Twisted Ribbon Rose

Step 1

Start with a 12″ ribbon piece. This length is more than you will need but a good practice length.

Step 2

Fold in half and hold loose ends with thumb & index finger.

Step 3

Insert opposite index finger into loop and twist. The tighter the twist, the smaller the flower.

Step 4

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.

Step 5

While holding loose ends tight, slide loop end toward the top. Rose will form.

Step 6

Glue remaining “tail” from loop to underside to secure. Cut off loose ends or allow to dangle.
