Would you like to make your own satin roses, like the one I used in the Roses are Red? Follow this simple tutorial. (Special thanks to Jake for holding the ribbon!)
Measure out a length of ribbon. About 60 inches works for 1 1/2" wide ribbon. Use a shorter length for smaller roses. Leave the ribbon attached to the spool, to avoid waste. Find the midpoint of your measured piece, and fold as pictured. Fold the ribbon back under.
Continue folding each side of the ribbon under and under again until you are 6 inches away from the end of the cut end. Hold the last fold, and allow the rest of the ribbon to accordian out.
To add stability to your rose, sew up and down through the center of the rose a couple of times using a thread color that matches the ribbon. This makes for a neater, slightly more compact finished product. Cut the rose off from the spool, and attach to whatever project you made it for.
