Default Need help makingfive point ribbon rose, please..

http://www.pintangle.com/journal/200...on-flower.html
Someone have previously posted this link for the five point ribbon rose. It looks very simple, but for the life of me I can't figure it out. I don't understand the second step that she says to fold the mitered corner back on itself. I have tried every way I can to fold it and it isn't working for me The instructions seem plain enough, the pictures are very clear but this mind just can't get it.
Any help please?
Thank you so much,
Janice

ditto! but i usually don't precut my ribbon . . . so i move my fold line up to the mitered section . . . and then measure from flower/leaf tip to desired length and then cut/seal. cause trying to find the center of a mitered fold takes me awhile.

crap, i hope i'm not adding to the confusion!

I personally use these instructions. I think they are easier. HTH.

http://ribbonflowers.blogspot.com/20...on-flower.html

P.S. - Instead of sewing the middle portion like they do with the one stitch, I use my woodburner to just touch it so it melts together. You can't see it in the finish product and it makes making the flower quicker.

Wow, thank you all for responding! I thought that was how I was supposed to fold it, but when I do the tails of my ribbon do not meet up as hers do in her picture, my one ribbon tail is way off to the side, almost like the tails of an awareness ribbon and if I try to make the ribbon ends meet my fold is WAY off. I can't believe I can not do this.

I am sorry, I thought I had added a post that said I figured it out with the help from all of you. I can't believe how hard I was making this out to be.
Again, thanks for everyone's help.
