SUper cute!  I love carnations, and those look pretty real actually.  I think the ribbon idea is a good one, and maybe wrap some cotton batting around the base to thicken it up a bit, then cover it with ribbon?

You can use floral tape under the ribbon. That’s what we did for ours, and it helped thicken it up without it being squishy.  We also used leaves to cover up the base,then wrapped it in the floral tape, then ribbon. I thought I had a better pic saved on here, but you can kinda see the thickness here

I would try to make the stem part thicker.  Maybe put a wood dowel in the middle of ‘stems’

@DeathByDesign: These are the flowers Fiance made for me last Valentine’s Day. The ones we’re making will be similar, except using patterned ivory paper.
