Step 1: Materials Required
Ric Rac ribbon
glue, tools (not pictured)
Step 2: Cut Your Ribbon in Half. Take One Half and Fold It Into Half.
Step 3: Alternate the Waves on to Each Other, Just Rotate Each Half on to the Other, in an Alternate Fashion.
Step 4: This Is How It Should Look Like Now. Seal the Ends Using Lighter, Use the Blue Flame for Clear Sealing
Step 5: Now, Keep Your Needle and Thread Ready. (I Chose a Matching Color)
Step 6: Start Rotating From the Middle Towards End. Just Stitch for Every Once in a While to Make Sure the Flower Stays in Place. (you Can Use Fabric Glue If You Are Allergic to Sewing.
Step 7: In the End, Push the Last Piece on the Back of Rose. This Will Be Your Back. Here Is Your Finished Rose. I Made 2.
Step 8: Now, Use Your Bead Cap As Filigree
Just open the bead cap ends using pliers and it will fan out as a filigree. Paste your flowers on to the filigree.
