wholesale ribbonCut Five Lengths of 7/8" Ribbon, all the at 2 1/2 inches long. Heat seal the ends.

Tip: Cut the lengths with a woodburner, which cuts and seals the ends in one step.
Fold the ribbon in half and mark the center edges with a pencil.
There are two ways to make the petal point on flowers, sewing the center points or heat sealing the center points.
Heat Seal Center Points
Bring Center marks together, hold with a pin. Touch the centers with the pointed tip of a wood burner. The wood burner will melt the ribbons together very quickly. Set the wood burner down and hold together for just a second to make sure they seal together.
