Rib­bon Flower Tuto­r­ial
By Lisa M. Pace

1. Cut rib­bon approx­i­mately 12 inches
2. Start­ing at one end of your rib­bon weave your threaded nee­dle in and out of the rib­bon as shown (I thread my nee­dle with the thread still on the spool. This way I don’t have to worry about not hav­ing my thread long enough or my rib­bon com­ing off of the thread)


3. Con­tinue weav­ing your threaded nee­dle all the way to the end of the ribbon

4. Once you are to the end of the rib­bon pull the thread through the rib­bon to make it gather


5. Cut thread mak­ing sure to leave enough thread for you to tie a dou­ble knot
6. Gather your rib­bon as tight as possible



7. Dou­ble knot your thread
8. Glue the cut ends of your rib­bon together mak­ing sure the glued ends point to the under­side of the rib­bon flower


9. Once the glue has dried flat­ten out your flower


10. Adhere your but­ton to the cen­ter of the flower (in my exam­ple I used two and placed one on top of the other) using a hot glue gun


Have fun! The pos­si­bil­i­ties for these flow­ers are endless.

    My daugh­ters have used this sim­ple tech­nic to add a touch of the same rib­bon to a ring that has a “but­ton” type top, and slipped it under the dec­o­ra­tion on the ring along with adding the rib­bon to a but­ton on an out­fit, and on their shoes etc. Fray Check from the fab­ric depart­ment is great to keep the edges from fray­ing if one finds the stitch­ing down of them too teadious.

    it’s a nice one. love it. could you tell me more about rib­bon flow­ers? i’m new to this site. i already learn how to make a jas­mine and roses, glue them up with a safety pin and voila, a cor­sase (did i spell it right?)

    any­way, i need to learn more, since i’m mak­ing these rib­bon flower as a busi­ness. my friends just love it.
