Default Is there a tut for this?

Ok so I bought some of these from this HG in a destash, but missed out on a bunch she was selling. I think they are adorable, but all my searches just come up with other people who sell them. I THINK I know how, but I like having measurements for this type of thing... Can anyone help a girl out?

There is a tut on here that will give you the concept. My 9 yr old made one the other day but she followed the instructions to a "t". I think you will have to use less loops and the size of the ribbon might by a little different than those on there. You may have to guesstimate and work with the ribbon in order to know how long each strip of ribbon will have to be cut. Let me see if I can find that link.

Awesome....this would be better for her to follow. All she has to do is add another row of strips.

I would think, you should be able to make the petals by doing a single loop, then making the inner loops a little smaller.. then do a seal on them/hold them together with the wood burner, and then just run the need and thread through all five/six petals, pull tight and then tie off. There should be enough of a base in the center to glue the centerpiece on.
I don't know if it would be easier to stitch the petals together or glue them, but most tuts that I've seen on ribbon flowers suggest needle and thread.
I have no idea what size to cut the ribbons, but I would just play with it before cutting it off of the spool.
This is adorable! I can't wait to try it, but I have to focus on finishing other things first.. boo! lol

I also bought the tutorial from someone on here, I've not made it yet, but I love helping other HG's out specially when they take that much time to write out instructions. I'm out of town and don't have access to my binders or I would look it up for you.
