Ribbon Flower

I thought I would have a little play around with some of the ribbon I had bought from the NEC Hobbycrafts show in March.  So I opted to make a flower with it.  I began by folding over the end and glued it in place with my glue gun.  Then I folded the end in to a triangle shape to create the centre of the flower.
 

Then I rolled the ribbon around this folding the edges and twisting it to shape as I built it up.  I secured each fold using the glue gun dabbing small amounts of glue at a time. 
When I felt I had got it to the size I wanted I cut the ribbon so I had a small amount hanging.  I applied some glue to the back of the flower and lay the ribbon across it.  Then trimmed the remaining ribbon to tidy the completed ribbon. 
 
 
Have a go! 

Bye for now!
