I did a tutorial for ribbon roses a few years back that was made up of a step by step photos but I thought that now it was time to share a video on how to make these with satin and heathered ribbons from Offray. It's much easier to see the process via video, right? I just got these gorgeous ribbons in the mail from Offray and I fell in the love with the soft, romantic feel of them. They make absolutely gorgeous roses for shabby chic decor, wedding decor, parties, hair clips, and more. I actually used these to make a few pretty candle wraps: DIY Candle Wraps with ribbon
Choose ribbons in the finish and color that will make your project look the best. Satin are great for weddings and cotton ribbons are awesome for party decor and crafts. And patterned ribbons like this rainbow grosgrain ribbon are really fun for making flowers!

After getting a comment about how bad this video was (YIKES, click here to see it) I decided to re-edit the video and update it now in 2017. Somewhere along the way I deleted all the audio files and things were lost so other than the video itself, the audio and everything else is totally different. Please let me know if you think this video is easier to follow!

Be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel if you want to see more tutorials like this one. I'd love to see you make these and use them in your craft projects! Ribbon roses have a luxurious, elegant look that just can't be matched by paper roses. Also, ribbon roses last longer than paper roses for projects like pins, boutonnieres, and hair clips so you should just always make ribbon roses. I mean, why buy flowers ever again?! LOL
Okay, well if you REALLY want to make paper flowers, I made this tutorial showing how to make them with crepe paper: 3 DIY Crepe Paper Flowers
