How to Use an End Cap with Ribbon
End caps create professional finishes for your jewelry designs. Adding them to the ends of silk ribbon can be tricky. Read this Handy Tip to learn how to quickly and easily add an end cap to your silk ribbon in a secure and stylish way!
Place an eye pin on the end of your silk ribbon.
Fold the silk ribbon around the eye pin and tie cord around the ribbon at the base of the eye pin to secure it. Make a knot.
Wrap the cord several times around the ribbon, ensuring that it stays in place around the base of the eye pin loop.
Tie another knot for even more security.
Add a dab of adhesive to the cord and allow to dry. Trim the cord.
Slide an end cap onto the eye pin and over the cord around the silk ribbon.
Add a bead of your choice onto the eye pin and create a tight wrapped loop to secure the end cap in place. For help creating wrapped loops, see our Wrapped Loop Handy Tip.
