• 4" wooden hoop • Ribbon 015L and 021L from Kreinik* • Dou­ble-sided tape

Re­fer to photo through­out. Press stitched piece from re­verse side, straight­en­ing as much as pos­si­ble.

Ap­ply dou­ble-sided tape to all sides of outer wooden hoop. Start­ing near screw on top of hoop, place both col­ors of ribbon side by side on outer hoop. Wrap rib­bons around outer hoop, al­ter­nat­ing col­ors and lay­ing rib­bons flat un­til reach­ing other side of screw. Trim ribbon ends as needed.

Cen­ter stitched piece over inner hoop. Place ribbon-cov­ered outer hoop over stitched piece, stretch­ing and straight­en­ing stitched piece as needed. Tighten screw to secure. Trim stitched piece flush with hoop be­ing care­ful not to cut rib­bons. Use 12" lengths of each color of ribbon to tie a bow around screw hard­ware.
