We also recommend arranging them in layers of 2 or 3!

Layering ribbons of different sizes will create a ribbon with a lovely 3-D effect.

—Style 2—

How about arranging the basic ribbons to create a flower ribbon!

Prepare 4 ribbons of the same size. Layer 3 of them as shown in the picture, and fix them with a stapler.

Arrange the 4th ribbon over the center as shown with the dotted lines in the picture, fasten the back with cellophane tape or some other means and your ribbon is complete!
