I prepared a pattern that you can download (link below) and print out. I used heavier paper for printing (160 grams paper) and cut it.

What do you need:

– Printer and suitable paper in the colors that you like
– Scissors
– Ruler
– Ribbon
– Double-sided adhesive tape or paper glue

1. Print this pattern. It is in actual size, paper size A4. Just make sure before printing that in your printer settings the option for “Actual size” is chosen. This way the pattern will be the same size as mine. But if you want you can scale the pattern as much as you like to.

Cut the diamonds. Fold the lines with the help of a ruler. If you have other craft tools .

Use glue or double-sided adhesive tape to fix the ribbon place.
