By on May 30, 2011

Materials:

Method:


Wrap three lengths of alternating colored ribbon around your present.

Secure each ribbon at the back with double sided tape.

I like to secure the end of each ribbon together, but not attach the ribbons to the present itself. This allows you to alter the spacing of the ribbons after you have completed weaving.

With another length of ribbon, weave it perpendicular to the first 3 ribbons, “under, over, under”.

With 2 more lengths of ribbon, weave them on either side of the previous ribbon, in an “over, under, over” fashion.
