This is something that my mom taught me as a kid. A real simple way to make stunning satin roses.
Pick about a meter of satin ribbon. Fold it into half to form a V.
Now move one end go over the fold. Repeat with the other side.
Do this about 25 times. These folds will make the petals of the rose.
After this, you will end up with a neat pile of folds. Knot the free ends of the ribbon.
Let go of the stack of fold and you will get something like this...
Just pull one of the ends of the knot to get this..
Wasn't that easy?? Now just run your needle through the the enter to hold the petals in place and cut the extra tape. Here they are after being sewed in place.
I stuck them onto some felt and glued them onto a hair clip. I think they turned out great!
