Pin the Mitered Edge

Use a pin to temporarily hold the mitered edge of the ribbon in place.

Miter the Opposite End

Roll out enough ribbon to reach the next corner. Use the triangle and ink pen to draw a diagonal line across the ribbon. This miter should be drawn in the opposite direction from the last one so it fits with the next length of ribbon.

Tip: Refer to the mitered corners of a picture frame or window trim to determine which direction the miters should go.

Cut the Ribbon

Cut on the inside of the line again so the ink doesn't show on the shower curtain.
