      It’s just picking up the project from the table without letting it unfurl.

      Take one end of the ribbon and thread it through the center of the square creation. That piece you will pull slightly and then start to twist to create the center of the rose. Keep twisting if you want a tighter bud or slightly twist to have an open rose.

    I LOVE this and want to make lots of larger flowers for my home for my daughter’s Valentine’s Day birthday! What size ribbon do I look for? Thanks!

    I’m in the midst of attempting to recreate these flowers and I keep getting stuck on step 8. Can anyone explain more clearly which pieces of ribbons get tucked and exactly how to twist it so they don’t just come apart?

    I have been attempting to recreate these awesome flowers and I keep getting stuck on step 8. Could someone explain a little more in-depth what needs to happen with the ribbon tails to get the flowers to work?

    Thank you for the wonderful project. It’s a beautiful red, orange, fuschia pile of flowers. I love silk flowers used in clothing and accessories and your tutuorial is simply fantastic. Thank you, also for the link to David’s store!

    I don’t usually like artificial flowers, but I like these. They’re quirky and funky because they’re over sized. Like a cartoon bouquet. Fun!
