I would advise a tentative application at first, until you see what the effect is, so that you can determine how much you want to see and embellish this object of your desire. Experiment with color, thickness, type, mixture, texture, and form until you are more familiar with the base on which you are working or the stand-alone object you create. From this you may then determine (or perhaps you knew all along!) what would be most suited to your task, so that you can feel confident in creating your own masterpiece.

You can make more or fewer knots to vary the length of the tab end. Step 3: Now make a square knot (two steps) but do NOT include the right hand cord of the core you are tying around. Step 4: Begin tying again. The reverse side of the ribbon should show the cord you did not tie around.
