Ribbon Sticks

All the kids received a ribbon stick at the party.

Here is how I made them.

Dowel rods - any thickness (mine was 9mm)
A nail
Alligator clips 

It's really hard to screw the ????? into the dowl, 
so nail in the end about 
1/2 cm.
Then removed the nail (try to pull straight out, don't wiggle it around, it can make the hole to bog)
Screw in the ?????

Why do they put the stickyess of sticky stickers on things??? (say that 10 times)
I had to sand mine off.

Cut all the ribbons to length

Put ribbons together & fold. 
It's a  good idea to sew the ribbons together, but I had to many.

Attach the Alligator Clip to the ribbons & with the hole on the clip side through the ????


The kids loved these on the day.
