Default Re: Ribbon vs. Elastic

The banner I bought on Etsy. I went on a search for a banner, it was the first one I saw and I absolutely loved it.

For the tutus - I use a roll of paper towels and straight pins. I pin a section of the elastic onto the roll and place the roll between my knees. It keeps the elastic secure while I tie my tulle and keeps the elastic from stretching out to much. It also makes it easier to get nice, even knots in the tutu.

The tie depends on the type of tutu that I'm making but either of them work - knotting the tulle or folding the tulle in half over the elastic and bringing both ends through the loop. Each will give you a slightly different look.
