Roll Out Ribbons

Roll out the ribbons in a diagonal across the pillowcase, alternating ribbon color and type. Cut to create a 1-inch overhang on either side (Image 1). Leave the spacing between the ribbons slightly random and pin into place as you work your way down (Image 2).

Attach Ribbons

Using the fabric glue, attach the ribbons to the pillowcase, removing the stick pins as you go.
