Hi

I tried Typing a post to explain............

but it didnt work

so try this



Just fold the ribbon (or whatever you are using) in the direction of the arrows, and fold it over where the top "bow" parts are.... then sew a button in the middle

Hope it helps

Edit Yes the "arrow" thing is dodgy, im lazy

Here's a step by step illustration. Maybe this will help a little more?



Hopefully that makes sense! Good luck Smiley

I understand this but its not coming out right for me if you get me.
Like the ribon is all creasing up and looking a mess.
>_<

I am confused on how to correct the creases

Those look as though they're made out of fabric. What kind of ribbon are you using? If it's wide enough, you could always try ironing it. Put a pillowcase over it so you don't damage your iron or the ribbon, if you aren't sure if its something that can be ironed. It might be easier to give it a shot with fabric first. If you do use fabric, definietly iron the creases.

Cut it waaaaayyy longer than you think you'll need, so you dont have to worry about running out halfway through. It's a lot easier (and less frustrating) to trim something when you're done than to be halfway through and unable to continue!

Just try it with a 1 inch wide strip of paper first to see how long you need the strip to be.

You need to use an ironable material to get that effect and it may help to stiffen it with iron on interfacing.  Smiley
