Ribbon roses are great to use in gift wrapping, to embellish hats, add to wedding bouquets and chair backs, or to your party favors. They can be used in home decorating, gift wrapping and they make pretty clothing accessories. Wrap the ruffles loosely for an open rose and tightly for a rose bud.

1. Gather the edge of 1-1/2" yards of 2-1/2" wide wired ribbon.

2. Glue one end of the ribbon to a floral stem wire and wrap the ruffle around to form a rose.

3. Using green floral tape, tape the end of the ribbon down the floral stem.
