how to make ribbon flower..This is called a five-point flower and to make this I cut (5) 2" strips of seam binding. I then folded each strip on a 90° right angle. Next, I folded the strip in half again, mirror image. With a needle and thread I sent a basting stitch through all five of the folded strips, pulled the thread taut and then sewed the last flower petal to the beginning flower petal. I added a pearl to the center to cover the hole in the middle.
