Hints and Tips Silk Ribbon Embroidery
 
Some stitches look good if the ribbon twists as you stitch, for example, woven spider web rose, straight and ribbon stitch for long leaves or stems, some larger detached chains, twirled ribbon roses, loose French knots and the folded ribbon rose.

Secured onto the design with tiny stab stitches and matching thread worked between the twisted sections of the ribbon.
