Step 1:

Measure 2 inches of satin ribbon, fold and cut using scissors. Heat the edges to stop them from fraying. Fold in half diagonally, then fold in half twice. Cut the tip and use a tweezer to hold it. Lightly heat it to stop it from fraying. Next, cut a small part of the bottom and hold it with the tweezer. Lightly heat to stick them together. Now you have one petal. Repeat the process to make 7 more pieces.

Step 2:

Run a needle with a thread on the tip of a petal, then followed by a white bead. Continue alternating the beads and petals. Once they are all in the thread, pass your needle to the first petal to connect the last bead and make the flower. Create a knot to secure, then cut the excess thread.
