Step 1

The things that you'll need are: 2 pieces of ribbon (it doesn't matter what pattern, as long as they match), thread (that matches your ribbons), needle, and a button.

Let's start sewing!

Step 2

Get your thread and needle. Sew loose stitches all the way on one side of your ribbon.

Quick tip: Make sure you've got enough thread until the end, as you are going to pull it through. This is why we've got a loose stitch.

Also, make sure to use a thicker ribbon so that it will be easier to manipulate.

Step 3 

Trim the ribbon, and put both ends together to form the circular shape. As for me, I like it to be sewn than glued together.

Step 4

Do the same to another ribbon with a different design. Make it a bit larger so we can layer them up.

Once done, sew it together. Add a cute little button in the middle as a final touch!
