- Place pattern on light box to trace cuffing lines - make lines 1/4-inch longer than the width of the ribbon.
- To cut slits in cardstock, put mat on light box and flip paper over so that the penciled lines are on the hidden side and trace the lines using a craft knife and a ruler.
- Starting at the bottom, weave ribbon in and out around the square using needle threader (leaving plenty of slack to tie a bow). Tie to finish.
