Ribbon Rose Tutorial

This is the card I posted the other day and here is the Ribbon Rose Tutorial.  I hope you enjoy.

You will need these supplies:
  • Stampin Up Seam Binding:  approx. 1 yard which is 36"
  • Needle with large, thin opening for Seam Binding  *photo below*
  • Embroidery Floss to match Seam Binding
  • 1/8” Hole Punch *mine is the long reach*

Above:  Take a 3 X 3 piece of white/vanilla cardstock and mark the center.  Dot the center with a pencil and punch it out.  Now erase you lines as shown in #3.  As in step four, make 5 lines coming out from the center with your pencil... star shape.
Carla's Ribbon Rose Tutorial (3)As shown, above... using your small hole punch, punch out the end of each line, as in photo #6.

Above is the needle you need for the ribbon.  Just pop into your local craft store and see which needle will accept a pc of 5/8” ribbon, even though SU Seam Binding is 1/2”.  The little extra room is good.

Now with your embroider floss on a needle, come up from the backside into the center hole and tape down the end to your cardstock.

Now go down from the front into one of spokes and back up into the center.  Repeat until you have completed each spoke... see below for the finished piece.

Thread your ribbon, approx 1 yard/36",  but don’t knot it, tape the end down to the back of your cardstock, and bring it up from the backside to the front.  See the backside below...

Now weave your seam binding, under the first spoke...

Now weave over the next spoke.  Repeat this process, over and under your floss spokes, until you have wrapped the ribbon around at least 7 times.  You could need more, it will depend on how long your spokes are.  Mine were over an inch.

Just keep wrapping loosely over and under each spoke... be sure to let your ribbon twist.  This is a biggie!!!  My above photo’s shows my seam binding pretty straight.  Well, twist it as your pulling it thru, it will look more natural and you won’t have to tweak it much after the fact.
Carla's Ribbon Rose Tutorial (16)
If your ribbon isn’t twisting, hold up your needle and spin it so the seam binding twists.  Now, see how you can still see the embroider floss on your project... keep going around, over and under until you don’t. 
Now we’re at the end... I went down each hole to complete the petals all the way around.  You will go down, and then come up in the next and back down in the previous one.  Re-read this as your doing it, its easier.  Just finish it as there were 5 petals all the way around.  See photo below... starting at #1 and working to #2, then #3 and on around.  Tape off in the back when finished.

Above is where I finished and will tweak it a bit.... with my fingers.   Pulling and twisting the folds a bit.  Fidget with it so you don’t see the cardstock thru the flower petals.

I then cut and taped down the end of my Seam Binding, as in first step above.  I covered the entire back with Double Stick Tape, as above.
Carla's Ribbon Rose Tutorial (23)
See the hole, top right?  You can just tweak your seam binding so it doesn’t show.  
  • When weaving over and under, loose is better and let your seam binding twist.  Your petals will fold over just like real petals.  Go around until you no longer see your embroidery thread, 7 times plus.
