Rose gift toppers from ribbon

Adding beauty to Christmas gifts simply.

I started with an old piece of wrinkled scrap ribbon.

Twisted an end and rolled it up to form the center of the rose.

Continued to twist the ribbon and wrap it around the center adding just a small spots of hot glue to the sides here and there. Tucked the end under the rose. Added a bit of hot glue the underside of the rose to secure it.

These can be made from almost any kind of ribbon, sheers or solids, wired or non-wired, thin or wide. Ribbon with edging is nice as it defines the petals. These pretty little rose ribbons would work for weddings, and any other beautiful gift giving occasion. Hot glue directly to gift. You can add additional ribbon, leaves, or small ornaments.
