I think you could do this either of 2 ways, with a continuous piece of ribbon or with 3 pieces. The one you have pictured looks more like 3 pieces to me. Make the figure 8's, you could stitch each one separately and then stitch the 3 together in the "flower" configuration you want. You know, stack the pieces on a straight pin or needle and arrange them, then stitch in place.

Just my 2cents, I'm going to give it a go this weekend as it's a very cute clippie!
this is what i was going to say, i make these oftenn i stack all the ribbon on the pin then shape
