How to Make Ribbon Carnations

1
Cut a 2-yard length of 1-inch-wide acetate craft ribbon.
2
Trim the length of each long edge using pinking shears.
3
Trace a 4-inch square on a scrap of corrugated cardboard. Place the cardboard on a cutting board. Cut out the square using a craft knife.
4
Place one end of the ribbon's length on one edge of the cardboard square. Wrap the length of the ribbon around the square until the whole length has been wrapped.
5
Cut a 6-inch length from a pipe cleaner using wire cutters.
6
Slide the wrapped ribbon off of the cardboard square. Squeeze the center of the wrapped loops together. Cut a 1/4-inch triangle notch through the layers on each side edge of the loop's center.
7
Wrap the craft wire around the loops, fitting the wire into the notches. Bring the ends together and twist tightly to secure.
8
Separate each of the loops to form the head of the carnation.
9
Cut open the end of each loop using pinking shears. Fluff and trim the carnation petals as needed.
