     Go to the point where one ribbon crosses through the other. Around that point cut a slit in the ribbon that passes through the other one (it should not have a slit in it yet). This will be the ribbon with its long end on the bottom.
     Take the long end of the top ribbon and pass it through the new slit, folding it in half just as before. Pull it through as far as it will go.
