How to Make Ribbon Flowers (Roses)
- the easy way!

how to make ribbon flowers

I first learned how to make ribbon flowers (roses) when I was a child. Since then, I've tried a number of different ways of making them, but the first way I learned is still the best and easiest, so that's the way I'll show you here.

Ribbon flowers like these are a great way to add a romantic touch to any gift. Use one in place of a bow on a wrapped present, or tie one around the neck of a wine bottle. You can also make tiny cute ones to put on greeting cards.

Some ways of making ribbon flowers really take quite a bit of skill in order to get a half-decent looking result. This method, on the other hand, can be done by a 6 year old kid. I think I must have been about that age when I learned it, and I was not especially coordinated ;-)

Basically all you do is fold the ribbon in a special back and forth pattern until it's all bundled up. Then you pull on one of the loose ends and the ribbon sort of "magically" arranges itself into a flower shape. It's actually pretty cool to watch.
