1 1/2 inch wide ribbon
hot glue gun
alligator clip (if making a hair clip)
small pin backing (if making a bow tie)
Apply a small amount of glue to the unfolded edge of ribbon. My ribbon is still wet from the fray check on its ends in my pictures- the fray check dries clear.
After applying glue take unfolded end of ribbon and align it on top of the folded area. There is no exact science on the folding.
