Still, I think the photos are good enough for you to see how to do this. It's a really easy way to do silk ribbon roses and please keep in mind, they do not need to be perfect! Roses in nature are not perfect so try to keep that in mind while stitching.
You will need 7 MM silk ribbon and a spool of sewing thread. I usually use white but you can use a coordinating color if you choose.
For this technique, we are not pulling the ribbon through the fabric. We are tacking it onto the fabric.
Step 1: Thread your needle with sewing thread and knot the end as usual. Tack your 7 MM silk ribbon and fold over the end 1/4 of an inch. Then fold that 1/4 inch in half so you have a 1/8 inch double fold.
Fold that 1/8 inch over 3 more times. This makes the center of the rose.
Once you have it attached to your block, you can take an extra stitch to make sure it's secure.
Step 2: To make the petals, you're going to twist your ribbon twice and tack it down with your thread.
Twist twice again, and tack it under the center of the rose.
Twist 2 times again and tack.
Continue to do twist and tack until your rose is about the size of a dime.
Cut your ribbon off and tuck the end under the nearest petal. Tack with 1 or 2 stitches.
And there you have it! A very easy Silk Ribbon Rose. Enjoy!
