Default ribbon candies

Thanks to all that liked my idea and creation! Please feel free to use my instructions but PLEASE do not sell them off as your own in a tut! thanks!!

Step 1: take small foam ball and cut in half, I use my wood burning tool to do this. I tried a serragated knive but it made too much mess! I use the tip in the picture. If you go slow u can achieve to cut it in half and use both halves, it takes a little practice.

Step 2: cut 3 strands of 3/8 ribbon about 20 inches and heat seal the ends. Then glue each strand on top of each other and braid it. Once you get towards the end and can no longer braid secure it with a straight pin or you can sew it, I just secure it.

Step 3: glue the heat sealed side of the braid to the middle of the foam 'ball'

Step 4: place a small dap of glue and wrap the braid around the glued section
