Cut the ribbon three times longer than you want the finished chain.

Make a 5/8-inch loop with color 1.

Push the color 2 ribbon up through the loop you just made to form another 5/8-inch loop.

Push color 1 ribbon up through the loop you just made as in Step 3.

Repeat Steps 3 and 4 until the chain is the length you desire.

Trim the tails. This is the top of the chain.

You can use this ribbons as hair bows or like a belt, onto hats,...Decorate a flower pot with ribbons.

Happy Easter everyone!
Thanks Robin Schar.

The budding trees, the new flowers,
and birds that sweetly sing,
whisper to me that it’s Easter.
Here is wishing a warmth for your soul
on Easter and always!
I hope you have a truly wonderful Easter break. Happy Easter!

How to Make Large Folded Ribbon Roses

1. Use a large ribbon rose. Depending on how large you want your rose, you can use either the whole spool of ribbon or just a portion of it. You can use what ever width and length you like to make your roses.
2. Cut ribbon in half.
3. Fold down one end of the ribbon toward you to make a right angle, leaving a tail.
4. Fold the ribbon away from you at a 45-degree angle, making a firm centre for the rose. Stitch to hold in matching thread. Roll the outer corner of the fold toward the long end of the ribbon. Roll it tightly. This creates the center bud of the rose. I also used needle and thread to secure ribbon. Leave the needle and thread attached to the ribbon.

old the ribbon diagonally to the back. Wrap the fold around the rose centre, each one of the folds becomes a petal. Continue rolling and stitching until in this way until you have the desired size rose.
