Cut a 50cm length of grosgrain and fold in half, with the two halves at right angles as above.
Don't worry if it slips out of your fingers as you fold. Once its completely folded, hold tightly to the ends and release, giving a twist as shown in the photo above.
You will end up with a beautiful rose on the end of a long tail of ribbon. You may need to untwist the rose a little to arrange the petals.
Secure the rose with a couple of stitches at the base of the flower, then trim the ends of the ribbon. Use the flower to decorate your projects as desired.
I hope you've enjoyed this tutorial. Please leave me your comments with links to your own projects.
