ok, this is my first post in Craftster, I'm writing from Barcelona (Spain).
So my question is: I want to make a ribbon flower pin to attach to my purse or my coat or both, and I'd like the style to be similar to that pins I see in american films when they get the 1st prize of something.
I think it must be easy, but I dont know how to do it. Can you help me please?
Hugs! Calypsa.

These are called 'rosettes' here's a link to a site with instructions on how to make them.  I hope this is more or less what you're looking for.

Does anyone know of a tutorial or link with instructions on how to make a more "realistic-looking" flower out of ribbon - one that could also have a pin attached on the back?  Thanks

Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers but to be fearless in facing them. Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain, but for the heart to conquer it. Let me not look for allies in life's battlefield but to my own strength.

Oh that link is JUST what I was looking for (and easy, too)!  I did some hunting of my own on the internet and found this link which also seems rather good:

The ones you posted are all right, but the first one gives a... I dont know how to tell, kind indiesh look that I like, the ther flowers are more... predictable.
By the way, anyone can help me with the explanations (I'm not an English speaker, you know...)? The thing is: in the 1st pic, when the ribbon has been cut, are the pieces sewn by one side or just put together? And how do I manage do fold them square?
Sorry for the inconveniences and thank you very much!

tienes que hacer la roseta (cortando ya sabes), luego la coses por las esquinas y le haces un nudo nadamas y luego hay que plancharla para quede plana (eso no lo dice en el sitio pero debe de ser asi, la doblas a la forma que quieres y lugeo lo planchas), y lo mismo con la segunda... espero haberte ayudado en algo...
