How to Attach a fold over crimp to organza ribbon

Christina of Bright ling Beads explains how to use a fold over crimp to finish an organza ribbon necklace. First, fold down the ribbon approximately an eighth of an inch. Then, fold it down over once again. Make perpendicular folds bringing each fold towards the middle and making the end of the ribbon as wide as the crimp bed. Lay the folded ribbon inside the crimp, leaving a small piece of the ribbon sticking out of the top. Use flat nose pliers to hold the tab of the crimp and hold the ribbon securely. Finally, using another pair of piers, fold down one side of the crimp onto the ribbon and complete this on the other side. You are now ready to attach a clasp or toggle to the end of the ribbon.
