Making Ribbon Roses

I am thinking about making my own ribbon roses to use as my bridal bouquet. I have seen pictures of them and they look gorgeous. Only I haven't made them before and have just started practicing on some ribbon I found at home using online instructions.


Any tips or pictures would be greatly appreciated. Also any ideas for cheap ribbon to practice on before I buy the lengths to use for the big day.

There's another version of ribbon roses I've made before: (hope I remember right) If the ribbon is the same on both sides, hold onto the "tail", fold across the ribbon to make a point, then fold again and again, making more points. When you have about the size you want, loosen the outside and it should look like a blossom. Wire and tape the ends together at the bottom. It will look different from the wire ribbon rose.
