Sorry, it was late when I posted last night and I must have been tired because it is not very clear:P I layer them. 10 on bottom row, 8 on next row at a angle, 8 on top at a angle, and 6 on top at a angle. All the angles go different way (left, right, left). I have always made them that way. I actually never thought to try them a different way
Would you mind posting pictures of what your ribbons look like? I would love to see them.
P.S. How do you sew them? I love to find out more about how to do that. I tie mine, but I bet sewing looks nice.
