Can I do hand embroidery on ribbon?

The ribbon I have
I am new to embroidery. I couldn't even sew a button to a shirt 6 months ago. I don't own a sewing machine, and I want to embroider a message onto a piece of ribbon. Is it possible?
I thought that I could attach the ribbon to a small embroidery hoop to keep it taut. But will it work, can you only embroider on a ribbon by machine? And does is have to be a very fine thread and needle?
I am a self taught amateur artist and when I discovered embroidery it opened up a whole new world. It's like painting with needle and thread.
I appreciate your response
Thanks and regards
