It's pretty self explainatory.... you just take the ribbon and wrap it around each knot of the waistband. I use 7/8" ribbon, however i have been using 1/2" elastic. So if you have wider elastic, you will probably need to use over 1" ribbon. Just leave extra when you start so when you make it around the waist you can have enough left over to tie a bow.

With the double layers, I dont' personally do this, but some people just take two or more strips and tie them together for one knot.
