First we cut all our ribbons in haphazard lengths. Next we glued them print side FACING IN to the inner embroidery frame. I've been working on colors with Felicity so I would say, "Felicity, can you please hand me a blue ribbon?", and she'd search through the pile for a blue ribbon. School...CHECK!
Next we flipped the frame and ribbons over so that the print side was now facing out and the ribbon looped over the top of the frame like below.
Next we slipped the second part of the frame on and tightened it down.
