Make a tight circle at one end, and secure with double-sided tape; don’t cut remainder of strip.
Continue to wrap the strip loosely, securing it at the top each time with double-sided tape, until the strip runs out; trim off any loose end.
Use double-sided tape to secure a 2-inch-wide yellow ribbon to outside of outermost layer.
How To Make the Teardrop Ribbons
Cut white artist’s paper into 3-inch strips.
Cut a strip for the inner-most shape.
Bring the ends together, and tape across the joint with regular (not double-sided) tape.
Place double-sided tape on both sides of the point, and add the next, slightly longer, piece of paper; continue until teardrop is the size you like (many of ours used strips 9, 11, and 13 inches long.)
