  1. Trace two sets of felt pieces using the template. Then cut them out. NOTE: Be sure to flip the template pieces over for one set, so that the pieces will line up when attached back to back.
  2. Cut the ribbons all the same length and melt the ends with a lighter, if necessary.

  4. Lay the ribbons out side by side onto a piece of tape. Then place another piece of tape on top. This will help keep all of the ribbons in place while you glue them down.
  5. Glue the ribbons to the back of one of the felt pots.
