For these ones I cut the ribbons at 3cm, 4.5cm and 6cm.
After sewing I put a pencil inside the petals and move it inside to give the petals a nice shape.

I cut them 1.5, 2, and 2.5 inches.
I string them all together on one string, leaving it fairly loose. Trial and error let me find how loose it needed to be to work.
Then I glue the two ends together and hold with a clip.
Then I go around the flower, gluing each loop to the next. I put a small felt circle on the back for stability, and a button or whatever on the front.

I hadn't thought about using a pencil in the middle to help shape! For ones when I misjudge the tightness of the thread (making it too loose) that would be helpful!
