Make Your Own Silk Ribbon Roses

Welcome back to the May Arts blog!  If there’s anything more beautiful than May Arts Silk Ribbon; I haven’t found it yet.  I think it’s my number one favorite for all kinds of projects.

Today, I’ve got a simple tutorial for you to create the most beautiful ribbon roses using May Arts Silk Ribbons and Satin Leaves.  All you need is a needle and thread and 30 inches of your choice of any of the 23 luscious colors of May Arts silk ribbon for each rose.

  1.  Fold the end under, then make small stitches to secure the end.   Sew ribbon leaves to the bottom of the rose.  Trim off the tail, if desired or leave long to attach to a wire to form a bouquet.  You may also sew a small round of ivory felt to the bottom of the roses to attach a pin for use as a boutonniere, dress pin or corsage or add one to a wrapped gift, a wreath or handmade cards.
