- Thin hard cardboard:
- Metal lineyka-
- Shoe knife-
- Paint in cans.
The paint should be selected for the tissue from whichmade tape. And Satin, and polyester tapes suitable, eg, nitro. If the tape is brown, paint, take the orange. From cardboard cut out two absolutely identical strips. They should be slightly wider than the tape itself, in particular if it is an orange. For a brown ribbon strip can be accurately and in width. Each stencil make longitudinal cuts in the strip width. Put the ribbon between the stencils and secure so that it is not slid, and apply a strip of paint cans. Allow the product to dry, turn the ribbon and put a strip on the other side.

In the second case, the fabric will be more dense and be more like a real St. George ribbon. Next knit 4-6 rows of the same viscous, but the orange thread. In the middle is a brown strip, then orange, and on the edge - brown again. In the transition from color to color thread does not break, and skip along the edge. The edges can be tie. Intertwined turns out fine, so distinguish knitted ribbon manufactured by the factory method will only be close.
