Default need help

my first attempt to a rolled flower rose... kind of bad. please help. It seemed like every time I folded i was folding it on top of the same fold from the layer below.
Any help, suggestions, clues would be appreciated.
Thank you!

I think it looks great for a first try. My one and only try looked awful.

I've had these on my to-try-list, and I think I'd be happy with that for a first try!

I think it is a great start, I made about 20 or 30 before I was comfortable with mine, varying how oftened I twisted, how much ribbon I used, what size ribbon (and fabric) I worked with, etc. My biggest problem was I thought mine had to look like ones I saw on here, I finally kicked myself and realized I really do like mine and they don't look exactly like ones posted on here, but that is okay. Imagine if all of our bows were exactly identical, what fun would that be?

My advice is use less ribbon, and turn it upside down and twist, don't try to evaluate it as you make it. As I made mine I would question each twist, when I let go and let the ribbon form as it needed to it worked better for me.

My vote is grab some ribbon and play, play, play, and once you get comfortable with the twist and turns of it, you have YOUR rose!

Agreed!! I think it looks great! When I first started these I was amazed at how easy they were! YOU are the one creating them, they SHOULD look like yours!

Thanks so much for this. Very true if they all looked the same it would just be boring.

Thank you everyone for all your positive feedback and help!
Im just going to need to practice, practice, practice!
