I've made a video tutorial version so you can see how it's folded:

I've decided to turn some of my old tutorials into simple one image versions like this because people asked for easier versions they could reblog on Pinterest/Tumblr etc.

This one is on a really simple way to make a ribbon rose which you can then use for hair accessories, clothing, cosplay, anything really!

Hope you guys enjoy it, let me know if you have requests or think I could improve in the layout etc ^_^

The original tutorial I wrote is here: [link]

I made one out of steel sheet, took a couple of tries, but it worked just fine once I got the hang of it :)

I'm trying to make a rosebud. To make it smaller, you'd just stop when it's the size you want, right? But is there any way to flatten it so it's not so full at a smaller size?
VioletLeBeaux's avatar
Yes that's correct, just stop when it's the size you like. To make it smaller and flatter then you can use a thinner ribbon or curl it more tightly. Hope that helps!

We already made it. We ended up just stitching it to look flatter. It worked out well enough. :)

I might be able to post the pic I'm using it for on here when I'm done. I might be able to. I'll send you the link if I do. :D Thanks for the tutorial!

About how much ribbon do you use per rose?
VioletLeBeaux's avatar
It depends on the width of the ribbon and the size of the rose but I'd estimate maybe 30cm!

Is it okej for me to use this for a school project?
I have a project about life, death or life and death, I chose the life, and thought about that our life is just like a rose.
and I also thought about to make a lot of difference roses, for all the kind of people and religies on the world,
so can i use it?

Sure, you're welcome to use the technique to make roses for your school project. I just ask people don't make things to sell from my tutorials. Thank you so much for asking permission and good luck with your project!
