This is the tutorial for a flower similar to the $20 belt for less.  Smiley
Mine is made w/ crepe paper because i didnt have any ribbon the right width.

The finished flower:

Start w/ ribbon, it has to be pretty long, i didnt measure. You could make the flower as full or as small as u want so its up to you.Then begin scrunching it up into a small circle:

COntinue to do this, w/ the circles getting bigger and bigger and wrapping around eachother, like a spiral:

The finished flower:

to finish it you could tape up the bottom or handsew a few stitches through it. You could probably use a wired ribbon, pull the wire out of one side, and scrunch the other side up by pulling on the wire a bit. Attatch it to the belt w/e way you want! Sorry its not a very clear tutorial! I can do a finished one if anyone wants, but i havent yet. Hope its helpful.
