What you need

  • Fabric placemat  *if you find something double-sided, even better!
  •  2’ long strip of 2” velvet ribbon
  • 12” long strip of thin velvet ribbon
  • Adhesive velcro dots
  • Ruler
  • Scissors
  • Glue gun


  1. Lay down your placemat with the inside facing up.  Pick the side you want to have your jewelry on.
  2. Cut 2 x 10” long strips from your wider ribbon.  Save the remainder.
  3. Cut 4 x 2” pieces from your thin strip of ribbon.  Save the remainder.
  4. Lay your ribbon down in your desired pattern. 
  5. Use Velcro circles to hold down the tops & bottom of your wider strips.  (For the ring strip I cut the Velcro circles in half.)
  6. Glue down the thin loops for necklaces.
  7. Add your jewelry.
  8. Roll up and as a bonus, you can use your bangles to keep it together!
