    Start by rolling the Brown ribbon to a cone shape, then glue.

    Cut excess material off, giving a true cone shape.

    Wrap the korker ribbon around the top of the cone and glue where needed to fasten.

    Continue to wrap the korker ribbon in a spiral motion to the top, creating the ice cream shape.

  2. Hey guys, 

    Here is a fun project you can do with your driving teen, or for your own personal use.

    Start with sewing the ribbon design to whichever style of key fob material you want.

    Next take the Key Fob hardware and ensure it sites flush with the ribbon.

    Take an extra ribbon or cloth to cover the hardware when clamping together to keep from marking up the metal.

    The finish product is fun and very useful!
