Ribbon Boards. Make light, handsome, reshapable Chess variant boards out of Christmas ribbons.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

I think the technique you describe for making a ring board won't consistently use the same two colors for the outer ring. It will sometimes use some of the inner colors. If you want a board that consistently uses different colors for the outer ring, you can add attachments to the ends of the strips you use for the inner board. These attachments would be in the colors of the outer ring. To make it look seamless, you would have to staple the attachments on in places that go underneath overlapping ribbons.
