I saw this awesome flower on little birdie secrets blog and instantly wanted to make one. First I covered an alligator clip with ribbon as shown in a previous blog.
Then using satin ribbon cut circular pieces of various sizes (I cut 5 pieces) I used 3 inch ribbon which was my largest circle and then tapered the "petals" from there. Using a candle and tweezers gently melt the edges of the ribbon (similar to heat sealing) all the way around each "petal". Then stack up all of your layers. I then used small black bead for the middle which I secured through all of the petals. If you really didn't want to sew you could hot glue each petal to the one above/below it and then glue buttons/beads etc to to the top center of the flower. I then just hot glued the finished flower to the ribbon covered alligator clip.
Also at Little Birdie Secrets is a tutorial on how to make organza flowers (very similar to these ribbon flowers
