Flowers I learned to make at regional

I got to attend the Fort Worth regional convention not long ago and one of the things we learned to make are these ribbon flowers.  I have seen versions of these flowers before but not exactly like this.  You punch a circle with one of your circle punches( a circle cut out of sticky pages is best).  Leaving the ribbon attached to the roll you start twisting the ribbon and winding it in a circle on the punched out circle. (I should probablly include pictures.)  What I like about these flowers is that you can start them in the center of the circle or the outside either one.

Here is an extreme close-up.  You can see my cardstock circle showing.  I guess it is not too bad for my first attempt.  If you would like me to include a picture tutorial on how to make these let me know, and I will try because I am afraid my instructions I just gave you, make no sense.
To make this 6x6 page I use riding hood red cardstock and Love Letter designer paper.  I also used retired riding hood red ribbon and basic pearls jewels.
Thanks for stopping by and please leave a comment,
