Weave satin ribbon through spaces between clusters, being careful not to twist
ribbon. Leave a little slack as
you go along, especially around corners.
Hint: It is easier if you work half of the ribbon from the left, then work the other half
from the right. Overlap
ribbon ends in the back and tack down with needle and thread.
