Step 1: 

Measure out 6 inches of duct tape.

Step 2: 

Turn over your tape and fold up about 1/4 inch.

Step 3: 

Continue folding until you reach the end of the tape. Generally this is about 5 folds.

Step 4: 

Seal each fold with your finger. Now that it is all sealed you should have one thin strip of duct tape fabric and you are almost done.

Step 5: 

To make the ribbon simply fold the tape one side across the other.

Step 6: 

Just like that.

Step 7: 

Pretty up your ribbon by cutting angles on the ends.

Step 8: 

Cut a piece of tape about 2 inches long and tear into three skinny strips.

Step 9: 

Use the thin strips to hold your ribbon in place.

Step 10: 

You are now ready to attach your pin. Be careful not to poke yourself!

Step 11: 

Flip over the ribbon and tape the pin in place, again be careful!

Step 12: 

Trim off any excess and you are all done!
