Vintage Ribbon Flower Sample Card

This was a Christmas gift from a dear friend. She acquired it from a Virginia antique store and believes it is a sample card from a salesman'sbook. Does anyone know how these flowers were created? By studying them, they appear to have been manipulated into a permanent shape. Very graceful and life-like. The leaves add a delicacy. The ribbon is a heavier fiber than silk. I think the ribbon is rayon. Would the  flowers  have graced lingerie or jacket labels?
