Default Flowers with Pleated Ribbon?

I came across these flowers made with pleated ribbon and was intrigued. (click on the pic to make it bigger) They almost have an old fashion look to them. I have never seen pleated ribbon before! I tried searching for pleated ribbon and came up with nothing! So I am guessing they are making their own pleated ribbon on a sewing machine with a ruffler???

Sooo...... what do you think? Cute or not? Too much work in order to make them? And I have no idea what type of ribbon they pleated to make it. Opinions please.

TIA

Those are BEAUTIFUL
You can make some similar ones with ombre ribbon.
Here a pic of one that shows how you just pull one side of the wired ribbon to get the pleated look...

or made with silk shibori ribbon which is already pleated. Here's a video tut..

To recreate those pleats I would use my smocking pleater - not a ruffler foot. Though you could get a similar look with a ruffler foot.

You can get the goodies on etsy to pleat your own by ironing. There is a seller that has quite a few different pleat styles and shows examples of the ribbon and flowers with it.
