Step 1: take and cut 11.8 inches (30 cm) of ribbon for each rose you want to make. You can use any size of ribbon you’d like. Any color of ribbon is okay to use. Cut roughly 11.8 inches (30 cm) of ribbon for each rose. You can also cut multiple ribbons of the same length if you plan to create several roses.
Step 2: now hold the center of the ribbon and fold the ribbon to form a V-shape. With this you will create a vertical angle. Remember, the tip of the V-shape should be pointing away from you.
Step 3: now, fold the left side of the ribbon over the right side of the ribbon. This part of the ribbon should overlap the folded V-shaped part of the ribbon. The tip of the V-shape would be doubled over with the folded ribbon.
Step 4: now try to fold the ribbon downwards towards the end of the left side of the ribbon and overlap the tip of the V-shape that has layers. Repeat this step until you’ve reached near the end of the ribbon. Then, hold and fold again downwards towards the end of the right side of the ribbon.
Step 5: when you’ve neared the end of the ribbon Hold it tightly by the end of the ribbon and pull the shortest ribbon left gently. Pull the ribbon until you a see a rose has formed. Look onto the ribbon to see if the shape resembles a rose.
And you are done!!
