ORDER OF SERVICE
Fold an A4 sheet of card in half and cover the front with double-sided tape. Place your ribbons and trimmings across the card. Cut to fit with an extra 2cm at one end, which can be wrapped over the spine. Using PVA glue, stick your order of service inside. Finish with a pretty bow.

Wind ribbon around the fingers of one hand. Flatten the roll and cut indents into the sides. Tie more ribbon around the centre (1), then pull layers apart to form a pompom. Stick to shoes using glue.
Fold a length of ribbon in half, then open it out so both sides lie flat – this should form a point (2). Stick the triangular point to the rim of the basket. Repeat using two different coloured ribbons for contrast. Tightly tie a thinner ribbon just underneath the rim (3) before pushing it up so it’s just visible. Clip fabric flowers to the sides and fill with confetti.
