How to Make Ribbon Rose Buds

 Leaving yourself about 2" of extra ribbon for tails, tie your ribbon in a knot:
The knot acts as the rose bud center so don't pull it too tightly closed. 
Next twist your ribbon and curl it around the center knot. 

 
Your ribbon will sort of fold around the center knot and looks like this when you are finished wrapping for a small bud:



Once it is the size you want it, take the ribbon and lap it over on the backside of your rose bud so it can be secured down with a glue dot:

Put your glue dot on the tail and secure it to the bottom side of your rose bud and trim tails for a finished look:
And VOILA!  You've got yourself one fantastic ribbon rose bud:
