It all started with one ribbon rose. I happened upon a wonderful YouTube video a couple of weeks ago which showed how to make rolled ribbon roses. I decided to give it a try and quickly turned into a ribbon roses making junkie. First I made my daughter, Angela, a Mother’s Day Corsage with a few ribbon roses. It turned out so well that I decided to make them for my other two other daughters Rachael and Catherine. Then I decided I should probably make one for my Daughter-In-Law, Chrishelle, and also for her mother Debbie. My grandson liked them so much that he asked me to make one for his girlfriend.
So, here we are two weeks later and I have made all of these Mother’s Day corsages. Once I learned how to make a basic rose, it was simple to construct the corsages using ribbon and in some cases a felt base. Some of the flowers, I embellished with beads. I made a couple that you pin on, and the others are wrist corsages that get tied on with ribbon. I think they all turned our really pretty.
This was the first wrist corsage that I made. My daughter, Angela, fell in love with this polka dot ribbon.
This pink corsage is for my Daughter Rachel. It’s a bit smaller than the others, because she is so petite.
I made my Daughter-in-Law this corsage with classic red roses. It’s one that gets pinned on.
Chrishelle’s mother Debbie should enjoy wearing these yellow roses to church on Sunday.
My daughter, Catherine, is a bit of a tom boy – so I made her roses from a pair of old denim jeans. This turned out to be one of my favorites.
I tried something a little different with this Victorian wrist cuff. I am in love with the ribbon I used for these flowers – it’s like crepe paper. Unfortunately, the craft store only had one spool of it. Making more of these wrist cuffs will probably be my next project.
I made this short video to show just how simple it is to make these roses, although the video linked at the top of this post gives a much better how-to demonstration. So what do you think? Do you know anyone who would enjoy one of these ribbon rose corsages for Mother’s Day?

I have said it before and I will say it again, You are a wonderful crafter! So talented. I have seen these before but never thought I could make them for myself. I can think of so many applications for these roses. I love the music in your video! Wish me luck!
I love making fabric flowers, so this post caught my eye! They all came out sooo beautiful! I’ve never made ribbon roses, but I am going to now – thx for including the link to the video tutorial!!!
These are just beautiful 🙂 What kind of ribbon did you use for the Victorian wrist cuff (and how did you add it to the cuff itself?)
