MA­TE­RI­ALS

• SCIS­SORS • 1½-inch wide RIB­BON • ¾-inch fab­ric FUSE TAPE • IRON • Four 3-inch di­am­e­ter wooden RINGS • Round PUNCH • HAM­MER • 3 dou­ble-cap RIV­ETS • ANVIL • RIVET SET­TER

HOW TO

Cut the rib­bon into lengths of 16, 20 and 24 inches. Cut the fuse tape to the same lengths.

Fold in both ends of each rib­bon ½ inch; iron.

Fold one rib­bon in half along its length (the rib­bon will be ¾ inch wide); iron. Open up the rib­bon; place the cor­re­spond­ing length of fuse tape in­side. Fold the rib­bon back in half; iron un­til the sides are fused. Re­peat with the re­main­ing lengths of rib­bon.

Des­ig­nate one ring as the top hanger. Feed one rib­bon through the top hanger; add a sec­ond ring (to cre­ate its bot­tom hanger).

Over­lap the ends of the rib­bon by about ½ inch. (Make sure the rib­bon isn’t twisted.) Set the punch over the over­lapped ends; ham­mer to cre­ate a hole.

Feed a rivet with the pin through the back of the hole; cap it with the plain end. Set the rivet on the anvil. Place the rivet set­ter over the rivet; ham­mer a few times to se­cure. Re­peat with the re­main­ing rib­bons and rings.

When se­lect­ing the rib­bon, bear in mind that it will be folded length­wise, so en­sure that the pat­tern still looks at­trac­tive when halved. One like this, with two stripes, works well.
