Su, they are made from little scraps of leftover sewing fabric, not ribbon. You can make them by cutting out little circles and gathering all around, but I found a wonderful tutorial for using the Clover Yo Yo maker that is so much easier and faster.

They sell the Clover Yo Yo maker in several sizes at Joann's and probably other stores, too. You can find it in the quilting section. They cost around $5 or $6, but I used a coupon.

The Yo Yo's on my card are about 1" in diameter, and I used the Small Yo Yo maker. Here is the great tutorial with pics:
