Default [Ribbon Roses]-what am I doing wrong?

So here are 3 of mine....
The satin green one was my very first try.....
It LOOKS right, but I want opinions...
The other two are made with 7/8 grosgrain....and for some reason, they aren't looking right to me. Is there a trick to making the roses out of the grosgrain ribbon or should I just stick with the satin? Suggestions,tips?

I don't make a whole lot so I don't know that I really have any tips, but imo the green lookds the best, then the striped, and the white starts good, but then looks like maybe you rolled too tight. I'm not sure exactly what happened on the white one. HTH. I think just a little more practice and you'd be great at any type of material. I've learned a lot of things are better with practice!

I agree that the green one looks best.

They all look good, although it does seem like there is a lack of uniformity.

I think you just need some practice.

as said before, practice! One other thing I do is be conscious of where your fold is going to be and try to stagger them so they don't line up on your rose, if that makes sense.

I think the reason the green one looks best is that the "petals" don't look as uniform as they do in the other two versions. I agree with the poster above--I think you just need to vary where you place your foldovers and vary them a bit more, to create more of a "rose" appearance.

Really, though, these all look great! I think with just a bit more practice, you'll have these down perfectly!
