How to Create Tiny Snapdragons From Silk Ribbon UPDATED

BeStitched has a lovely short video on how to make tiny flower petals using silk ribbon. They look like tiny snapdragon petals but are very easy to do. You can also add a bead in the dimple you create by going through the ribbon loop with the ribbon (this will make sense when you see the video), although she doesn't talk about that.  You'll just use a beading needle and a thread that matches the color of your silk ribbon.  Come up from the back in the middle of the dimple, slide on a bead, then go down again where you came up.  Easy!

UPDATE:  If you like silk ribbon roses, you'll enjoy this tutorial on using spider webs stitch.
