Default Sizing....

So this one looks easy enough just cut the ribbon glue the ends together and then glue all the ribbons together.....right??? BUT, how long do you think I need to cut each ribbon???

Just double the size you want, and add a little for a seam?

I would say, if you want it to be 3 inches... the biggest should be 6.5 inch each, the middle maybe 4.5, and the small 2.5???

Each side looks like a .5 difference from one level to the next...

Just a thought.

Whoops! Maybe you thought it was spam. I've never bought from them. Are they good? They do have free instructions with all the measurements you could want for your flower in PDF format in the above link. Sorry about the confusion--I don't think they need my help!

I wouldn't glue this, I would sew it! It is harder to glue something like that than to just use a needle and thread. JMO though.

I've tried both ways and I think you're right. You just end up with a mess if you glue.

I don't think you are spam I like them Shipping is always cheap for me and often they do free shipping if you spend a a certain amount, they also carry fabric as well as ribbon, I've never bought the fabric though, I don't have much use for fabric (though I wish I did!)
