Ribbon Twisted Box Braid Tutorial Bag Charm

Ribbon Twisted Box Braid Title
After completing the Ribbon Box Braid Tutorial I could not help changing it up a bit. This Ribbon Twisted Box Braid Tutorial is the same difficulty as the other tutorial but there is a twist!

This would also make a lovely Hawaiian Lei. Done in 3mm ribbon you could even make a mini Bag charm that looks like a Hawaiian Lei. Hmmm guess I need to buy some 3mm ribbon and give it a try.

Ribbon Twisted Box Braid Tutorial

What you will need:

2 x 2m of 6mm grosgrain ribbon
Key Ring
10mm closed jump ring
Glue
Needle and matching thread

Kits are available in a range of colours. Buy them here.

Find the centre of both pieces of ribbon. Using the centre points lay the 2 pieces across each other to form a cross.

Ribbon Twisted Box Braid 1

Take the top blue ribbon and fold it towards the bottom. Leave a little bit of space to create a small loop.

Ribbon Twisted Box Braid 2

Take the right yellow ribbon fold it to the other side.

Now take the bottom blue ribbon (the one that has not moved yet) and fold it towards the top.

Ribbon Twisted Box Braid 4

Take the left yellow ribbon (the one that has not moved yet) and fold it over the second blue ribbon and pass it through the first loop you created with blue ribbon. Gently pull the yellow ribbon through so there is a little bit of slack left.

Ribbon Twisted Box Braid 5

Now slowly pull each of the ribbons a little at a time until they all come together and form a square. Making sure that all the ribbons are pulled tightly but not so tight as to buckle the ribbon.

Ribbon Twisted Box Braid 6

You have created the beginning of a twisted box braid.

These next steps you will continue repeating until you have approximately 7cm of box braid.

Take the bottom blue ribbon and fold it across on an angle between the yellow and blue ribbons. Leave a little ribbon to form a loop.

Ribbon Twisted Box Braid 7

Take the left yellow ribbon and fold it across on an angle between the blue and yellow ribbons.

Ribbon Twisted Box Braid 8

Now take the top blue ribbon and fold it across parallel to the other blue ribbon.

Ribbon Twisted Box Braid 9

Take the right yellow ribbon and fold it across to the left. Over the blue ribbon and then through the loop you created with the first blue ribbon.

Ribbon Twisted Box Braid 10

Pull all ribbons gently to lock them in place.

Ribbon Twisted Box Braid 11

Continue starting with the ribbon closest to you (bottom of the picture) and continue each layer of the braid.

Ribbon Twisted Box Braid 12

Once you have approximately 7cm of braid tie the blue ribbons together twice.

Ribbon Twisted Box Braid 13

You can then tie the yellow ribbons once. Slide on the closed jump ring and finally tie another knot. Use a little bit of glue to secure the knots.

Ribbon Twisted Box Braid 14

Divide the ribbons into 2 (either one of each colour or the same colours together and tie a bow). At the end of the tutorial in this link you will find a tutorial on how to tie abow and have the two ends facing down. If you decide to do this bow make sure the box braid is facing away from you. Otherwise the bow will be upside down. Add a few stiches with the needle and thread to secure the bow. You can also add a little glue if you wish.

Open the jump ring on the key chain and attach it to the closed jump ring that you tied to the box braid.

I love these, they remind me of the lanyards we made as kids at the rec hall after school and on Saturdays. Thanks for this memory, will have to try with ribbon.
