Ribbon Rose Tutorial

It seems everyone is enjoying making roses out of different materials these days, and we are no exception, preferring to make ours out of ribbon! Isn't this ribbon rose just beautiful?

The very talented Clare Buswell recently used one of these ribbon roses on card for sketch Challenge #3.

Clare has very kindly shared a step by step tutorial on how to create one, which can be found on her blog here.

If you too love to create flowers whether they are roses or something different, we'd love for you to share them with us.
