Ribbon lanyard tutorial
Tie a simple overhand knot about two inches from the end.
The blue ribbon is on top in this case and the yellow is behind.
Wrap the blue ribbon to the right and back around the base of the yellow loop so the blue is now on the left.
Now you make a loop with the blue, with the loose end on the back side.
You are always going to bring up a loop from the contrasting ribbon through the loop.
There may be other ways to end it off, but when I have mine as long as I want it, I cut the ribbons and run the end through the last loop before I tie a knot on the end. I then take the two ends of the lanyard and tie another knot... of course that would be after I have put my scissors on the lanyard.
Good luck with your lanyard. If you have any questions, leave a comment and I will try to respond quickly.
