Hello Ribbons Unlimited Friends!!
It's Crystal here with a tutorial on how to make roses out of Organdy  2 3/4" size ribbon! Ribbons Unlimited Inc. has a ton of colors so I am sure you will find the right color for your project.  If you follow my blog any at all you know I love making flowers and I will make them from anything that will hold Today I am making these roses for hair clips, but again use your imagination as these can be added to anything to doll up your projects.

Lets get started
Take your ribbon and fold back and forth until you have 8 layers square 2-3/4 
(this doesn't have to be exact)

Your ribbon should look like this now...

Find the center and make starter hole with a piercing tool:

Then add a brad to center of the ribbons

Cut each layer apart so they are now single layers

Next make cuts from each corner to the center, do all four sides

Then twist the layers so they are all off-center and use your heat gun and carefully heat the ribbon and it will melt and curl (I use a heat gun and not lighter because the lighter will leave brown or black on light ribbon and with the heat gun you also have more control).  Do this until you have the desired look!

Your completed rose should look similar to this:

Here is the back side of the rose:

I also made a smaller one use half the width (folding it over) and only do 4 layers:

Cut in half and now you have 8 layers, add brad and make your cuts and heat

To finish my flowers, I make loops for the leaves with the lime organdy delight 5/8" ribbon

Then I add felt circles to the back for a more finished look...

TIP ALERT: If you are making these for little baby's with fine hair add some of the No slip sheet  (found by the liners for the kitchen cabinets) to the inside of the clip now the flower will not slip on fine hair!
