A Rose By Any Other Called Ribbon

One more jump back in time: late February, 2011. I decided I wanted to learn to make ribbon flowers. After a little experimenting, I grabbed some 3" wide double-sided ribbon and made these:

The wider the ribbon, the bigger the flower! These monsters measure about 8" across. That's my hand in the second photo, to give you an idea of just how large these are.

I bought this ribbon while in China last year, to decorate a 1900s Edwardian wireframe hat. More on that, soon....
