Do you often attend events? Or perhaps an expo, conference or even seminars? I do, and probably one of the most important elements in any of these events are the guest speakers.

Guest speakers are one of the reasons why people attend a certain event. Most are looking forward to the great knowledge, experience, and expertise that they can gain from these people. Their insights are invaluable to the relevant people and their experience is always worth listening to. Given the great value of guest speakers during events, how can event organizers ensure that they are given the proper honor that they deserve?

How to make a lei for Guest Speaker

Event organizers would often be tasked in handcrafting these rosette ribbon leis for their guest speakers or guest of honors. And most often than not, their first instinct to search google for various tutorials or find a supplier in Divisoria for leis. But this often results in a disappointing result.

Creating handcrafted leis will produce a lei that's underwhelming unless you have a really creative person that's specialized in handcrafting. Organizers usually don't have the time and energy to simply perfect these leis and they end up with asymmetrical rosette centerpiece or the color just doesn't do them justice. But it's okay because Letra 'To is here to your rescue. Our shop, located in Mandaluyong Philippines has been perfecting our designs specifically for your events. Our unique lei designs are handcrafted by an artisan, so we're sure that each piece that we deliver will be an eye-catching detail during your event.

Steps

Part 1

Measuring and Knotting the Ribbons

  1. 1

    Select two different colors of ribbon in your desired size. Choose ribbons of the same brand and width to make the process easier. Many people choose ribbon that’s 0.625 in (1.59 cm) wide, but you can pick out whatever type of ribbon you’d like.[1]
    • For example, if you’re making the lei for a graduate whose school colors are blue and yellow, pick out a roll of ribbon in yellow and one in blue, making sure they’re both the same size.
  2. 2

    Cut the ribbon strands to be roughly 5 yd (4.6 m) each in length. Unravel each roll of ribbon and lay them flat. Use a ruler or yardstick to measure at least 5 yd (4.6 m) of each ribbon, using scissors to cut them at the measured mark.[2]
    • You can measure out more than 5 yd (4.6 m) if you’d like to have more to work with just in case.
    • Cut each ribbon at an angle for a more professional look or straight across depending on your preferences, making sure they're both the same length.
  3. 3

    Align the ribbons and tie a knot about 5–7 in (13–18 cm) from the ends. Take an end of each different colored ribbon and form a knot. Leaving 5–7 in (13–18 cm) of space between the knot and the end of the ribbons will give you room to tie the lei together once you’re finished.[3]
    • Create the knot by aligning the ends together and forming a loop, or by tying the two ends together like you would tie your shoes.

Part 2

Forming the Loops

  1. 1

    Create a loop with each ribbon near the knot. Form a loop with each ribbon, as if you were making bunny ears. The loops don’t need to be large—a length of 2 in (5.1 cm) works well. Make each loop so that they’re both roughly the same size.[4]
    • Hold one loop in your left hand and the other loop in your right for the best grip.
  2. 2

    Stick loop #1 through loop #2, holding on to the base. It doesn’t matter which color ribbon you start with. For example, you might stick a white ribbon loop through a blue ribbon loop, or vice versa. Once a loop is through the other loop, hold the ribbons so one hand is holding each one in place at the base.[5]
    • If your ribbons have a shiny and non-shiny side, create your loops so that one ribbon has the shiny side showing and the other does not. Stick the shiny ribbon through the non-shiny ribbon to start the pattern of the shiny side showing on the lei.
  3. 3

    Pull on loop #2’s end to tighten it around loop #1. Pull lightly on the loose end of the ribbon you used to make loop #2, watching as the ribbon tightens around loop #1. Pull the ribbon so that it’s equal to the width of loop #1. Be careful not to pull too tightly, or the ribbon will scrunch up.[6]
    • Avoid pulling the ribbon so that it’s too loose as well—you want the ribbon to be flat against the loop for the best lei.
    • Hold loop #1 in place so it doesn’t move as the ribbon tightens around it.
  4. 4

    Make another loop using the ribbon so that there are two loops again. With loop #2 now tightened around loop #1, you’ll need to make another loop #2 that’s the same size. Hold the already-made loop with one hand and use your other hand to form the new loop.[7]

  5. 5

    Put loop #2 through loop #1. Do the same thing you did before, just with opposite colors this time. Move loop #2 so that it’s through the center of loop #1. Hold each loop with a separate hand to make sure they don’t unravel.[8]
    • For example, if you first put a white ribbon’s loop through a blue ribbon’s loop, now you’d be putting the blue ribbon’s loop through the white ribbon’s.
  6. 6

    Pull on loop #1’s ribbon end to tighten it around loop #2. Hold the loops with one hand, and use the other hand to pull lightly on the loose end of loop #1’s ribbon. Tighten it so that it’s flat against loop #2, and the ribbon isn’t bunched up or too loose.[9]
    • Keep the tightening of each ribbon as consistent as possible so your lei looks its best.
  7. 7

    Repeat these steps until your lei is as long as desired. Create another loop, now putting loop #1 through loop #2 again. Tighten loop #2 so the ribbon is flat against loop #1. Continue switching off between colors until you’re satisfied with the length of your lei. To check how long it is so far, hold it around your neck in a U-shape and pretend to tie it together.[10]
    • Remember that whichever ribbon is on the outside is the ribbon you’ll pull. This will also be the ribbon you’ll use to form the next loop, putting it into the already-made loop.
    • Keep each ribbon flat once it’s tightened to avoid pulling them too tight or too loose.
    • As you continue to create loops, your lei's length will get longer and longer.

Part 3

Finishing off the Lei

  1. 1

    Put the end of one ribbon through the other’s loop. After you’ve tightened a loop, instead of forming another one, slide that ribbon’s end into the already-formed loop. Pull it all the way through the loop so that it won’t slide back out.[11]

  2. 2

    Slide the remaining ribbon end through the same loop. You should be left with one ribbon loop and that same ribbon’s end. Pull the remaining ribbon end through its loop, going in the opposite direction of the other ribbon.[12]
    • For example, if you pulled the first ribbon through the loop coming from the right, you’d pull the remaining ribbon through the loop coming from the left.
  3. 3

    Create a knot with both of the ribbon ends. Tie a knot with the loose ends just as you did when you first started the lei, forming it at the base of the last loops. Make a double knot to ensure it’s extra secure, if desired.[13]

  4. 4

    Snip off the extra ribbon length using scissors if desired. Once your final knot is tied, cut off the ends of the ribbon so that they’re short and even. Leave at least 5 in (13 cm) of length for you to tie the ends of the lei together. Once you tie the 4 ribbon ends together in a knot or bow, your lei is finished![14]
    • Cut the ends of the lei at an angle or straight across, depending on your preferences.
    • Coat the ends in a clear nail polish top coat to keep them from fraying.
    • You can also tie the ends to something like a sign instead, making a wearable banner.

Tips

  • Making a full-length lei should take about 20-30 minutes, depending on your skill level and how long you want your lei to be.

Article SummaryX

To make a ribbon lei, pin 2 satin ribbons together with the right sides facing each other. Next, fold the ends down and inward, then secure them with pins. Sew along the entire lengths of the ribbons on both edges, leaving the ends open, and turn the ribbon tube right side out. Thread a smaller ribbon through the tube, attach beads to each end, and tie the ends into a bow. Then, shape the lei by scrunching up the tube until the folds resemble flower petals!

We’ve been busy stocking the Ukulele store with awesome products sourced from artisans around the world and are excited to share our latest finds with you. Today, meet the Ribbon Ukulele Lei! We fell in love with this little ornamentation – made in South Korea with ribbons of pink and white – and also with its maker, Yoo Hee Ahn of Ukuhappy. Read our Q & A with Ahn to learn more about the product and her story. Then, head over to the Ukulele store to get your very own lei!

 

Q&A with Yoo Hee Ahn of Ukuhappy

 

Q: Tell us a bit about yourself; how did you get started on your artistic journey?

A: I was born and raised in Kyoto, Japan, but currently live in South Korea. My mother worked with specialty embroidery and making clothing, so because of this I was familiar with handicrafts. I grew up loving the old movies, I loved to draw pictures, and ended up studying filmmaking at the University. After graduation,  I worked editing the fashion magazine Marie Claire in Tokyo then met my husband and moved to Korea. My husband is a Korean guitarist, and I had played the ukulele as a hobby and fell in love with the voice of the ukulele. I wanted to have a lovely accessory that went well with my ukulele, but couldn’t find such a thing anywhere in the world. It was an opportunity to begin to create an accessory!

 

Q: What inspires your creativity? Any particular artists you admire?

A: I am subject to the stimulus of color and design in the movies and pictures, and I admire the painter Henri Matisse and film director Mr. Otar Iosseliani. I also like running and do about a 10km run almost every day. The idea [for the leis] came up during a run and reflects the natural scenery of this in our design.

 

 

Q: Do you play an instrument? What music and musicians brighten your day?

A: Ukulele. Sometimes I enjoy playing the piano. My favorite musicians are Jack Johnson, Jake Shimabukuro, Ben Harper, Feist, Carla Bruni.

 

Q: What makes your shop and designs unique and special?

A: It allows me time to spend with our two daughters. I can play with the girls, or draw a picture, or take time to create something, which is very stimulating. It is also the source of my creative activity as children always expand the creative world, and this leaves a big impression on me. Sometimes, my 6-year-old daughter will help give advice on my designs.

 

Q: Did we miss anything you’d like to mention?

A: The Hibiscus and Plumeria, typical flowes of Hawaii, are created in the motif of our accessories. We use these in the application of the traditional crafts of the Hawaiian ribbon-lei. All parts of the petals are created carefully by hand, one by one, with a ribbon.

 

 

We are delighted to have Ukuhappy in the Ukulele store and hope you’ll take a closer look at the Ribbon Lei!

Giving a graduation lei when a student comes to the end of their university or high school career has always been a tradition in schools on the islands of Hawaii. However, recently, this tradition has been embraced and welcomed in schools and colleges across all parts of America in every state. When you give someone a lei, it is a gift, a present that shows your love and affection to that person. Leis are also presented when someone is either moving on or arriving. So, if you stay at a Hawaiian hotel, you might be greeted with a lei at the front desk. For graduates, it shows that they are leaving university life and taking their first step towards a new chapter. Graduation leis are becoming as much a marker of moving ahead as the cap and gown.

Hawaiian Leis

If you are graduating, you know someone who is, or you’re just attending a ceremony natural flower graduation leis are the perfect gift. Hawaiian leis are also wonderful as a treasure for someone who you know has a love for Hawaii and Hawaiian culture. The lei will allow the graduate to feel connected to the islands and remind them of the time they spent there. Or, if they have never been it could act as a symbol of their dream to one day visit this incredible place.

Presenting The Lei

When giving a graduate a lei, it is traditional for them to bow their head. The graduate then has the lei placed around their neck, and the ceremonial custom can be concluded with a kiss on the cheek. In some cases, the lei may need to be presented after the graduation ceremony, depending on the rules of each college. When a lei is placed over the head of the graduate, it wishes them luck on their future goals and offers good fortune. It also looks elegant and attractive when worn with graduate robes.

You can also include another gift such as a Hawaiian gift basket, spa gift basket for women or loose orchids to decorate for the party afterwards.

At With Our Aloha, we are proud to offer the full range of leis for graduates as well as others in attendance. We also have a wide range of customers who buy leis for their children graduating to another part of school, weddings, birthdays, going into new jobs, and embracing retirement.

Choosing A Lei

If you are thinking about purchasing a lei for a graduation ceremony you need to think about which type you want. There are many different choices to choose from. Commonly, leis are made with some form of a natural flower. One of the most popular leis that we have available is a fresh orchid lei. This stunning design looks incredibly delicate and comes in a wide variety of colors. As well as the aesthetic, leis are popular because they last and stay fresh for a long time.

When buying a lei do think about whether it will be given to a male or a female. There might be a differentiation here as girls love leis that are more feminine and may have an attractive scent. This is true for the tuberose lei that we have on sale. The delightful creation smells wonderful, and the oils within the flower are often used for making perfumes. The flowers themselves are elegant and yet bold, making them the perfect gift for a lady who wants to stand out on her graduation day.

For male graduates, there are various classic options available such as leaf leis and cigar leis for men. Cigar leis are made up of hundreds of little tube flowers. They get their name due to the fact that the orange and yellow tubes look like lit cigars and they are incredibly popular with athletes as well as a gift for Father’s Day. They can also be the perfect way to welcome your son or friend to the next part of their life at graduation.

Alternatively, leaf leis are one of the most popular leis in Hawaii. This masculine lei is often seen being worn by the groom at Hawaiian weddings and has become very popular with male graduates as well. The minimalistic design is stunning and will not attract too much attention. The lei does have a slight vanilla scent which many customers absolutely adore.

You can also get leis to match the colors of the university or college for the graduation that you will be attending. At With Our Aloha, we offer a wide range of different colored leis, so we are sure there is one that fits with the right college for you.

Different Types Of Graduation Leis

Orchid Leis

Our gorgeous, natural orchid leis are one of the most popular choices with graduates from the US mainland. Due to their popularity in Hawaii, they are often difficult to find during the months close to graduation. That’s we recommend you order one early if you want it there in time. These beautiful leis come in a wide variety for different colors from cream to lavender, and all are freshly made. Each lei comes with a complete set of care instructions to ensure it is still fresh on the day of graduation.

Graduation Leis for Men

Graduation leis for men come in many forms. The classic lei for men is made from the maile vine. Maile leaf leis are also worn by the groom in a Hawaiian wedding. Maile is not always available for shipping to California. Why does maile not ship to California? This is due to the strict agriculture inspections of incoming plant material. We can usually clean maile to be acceptable if it is ordered in advance. A suitable substitute for maile leis at an affordable price is made from ti leaves. There are also braided ti leaf leis with or without orchids woven in.

Sports fans may have seen coaches wearing the bright cigar lei. This is made from an orange flower said to resemble a lit cigar. This is a masculine lei said to bring good fortune. It is also suitable for graduation. Men can also wear a single or deluxe orchid lei in a color that they like. There are also color infused orchids to match school colors.

Graduation Leis for Children

Children wear graduation leis, too. Whether it means moving on to a higher level school or just advancing to the next grade it is a time to celebrate and honor. For a long lasting lei kukui nut leis are available in smaller sizes for your kids. With advance notice we can make an orchid lei in a 20 to 24 inch size for children to wear.

Candy Leis

Candy leis are often used in graduation ceremonies for young children. Your child, niece, nephew, grandson or granddaughter will love this gift as they graduate to the next part of school. With Our Aloha offers candy lei kits that you can create yourself. Each candy lei kit contains everything you need to make your own lei. You can then add your child’s favorite wrapped candy from Hershey Kisses to Werther’s Toffees. These unique leis are perfect for little ones, and you don’t just have to add candy. You can use anything you like to decorate the lei including small gifts and toys.

Selecting A Size

Some of our leis are available in different sizes. The size you choose really depends on how much you want the recipient to stand out on graduation day. Most of our leis are between thirty and forty inches long. But you can get a double orchid lei that contains between ninety and one hundred different orchid blossoms. This lei is almost twice the size of the the single orchid variation.

You can also look into purchasing a deluxe orchid lei. The incredible design is made of nearly two hundred different blossoms. These leis are very durable and will last for days before they are used on graduation day. If you want the graduate to stand out from the rest of the other students, this is the right choice.

Restrictions And Ordering Your Lei

The stunning leis that we hand create take a little time before they are ready to ship. This is why we recommend that you order your lei at least one week before your shipping date for some designs. Refrigerated, most natural leis will last several days before they start to change color or lose their scent. This will vary for each individual lei, so please check before you buy to make sure yours still looks stunning for graduation day.

Many of our graduation leis are incredibly popular, particularly in the months leading up to graduation from May onwards. For this reason, it is advisable to order further in advance. If the lei you desire is unavailable, we will strive to offer a beautiful alternative.

We ship leis all over America. However, there are a few restrictions. Unfortunately, we are unable to ship maile leis to California due to agricultural restrictions. We can, however, suggest variations that are similar such as a ti leaf lei instead of a maile vine lei.

Excluding the certain restrictions in California, our flower leis can be delivered to customers absolutely anywhere. Make sure you check delivery costs and shipping options before you commit to your purchase.

Fragrant leis are a wonderful choice as they add a lovely little extra to the graduation gift. However, we only offer fragrance leis with overnight shipping. This is to make sure that they still have their aromatic scent on the day of graduation. Most scents only last several days even when the lei is properly stored.

All our leis are natural, and we do not sell any artificial leis. We do this in the hope of keeping the wonderful tradition of the Hawaiian lei alive, bringing it to new locations.

Storing And Preserving Your Lei

Some leis available to purchase can last a lot longer than graduation day. Before graduation, you can refrigerate your lei to keep it fresh. Be aware, many leis are not suitable for freezing. If you want to preserve your lei after it is worn, you can hang some designs to dry and refrigerate others. We provide information on this for each of the leis that we offer. Each lei also comes with specific storage instructions. These will explain how to keep your lei fresh before the ceremony and, depending on the type of lei, how to preserve it after use.

Missing The Graduation?

If you are missing the graduation, there’s no reason not to still pick a lovely lei and send it to your loved one for their graduation day. This shows that you care and you wish you could have been there. It also allows them to feel your affection even if you’re going to miss the actual ceremony. You just have to make sure you send the lei at the right time, so it’s still fresh for the big day.

Alternatively, here at With Our Aloha, we also offer a wide range of Hawaiian flowers that can be sent as gifts too. A beautiful, colorful bouquet can show you’re thinking of them, no matter where you are. Have a look at the flowers that we sell for the full list of options here. We’re sure they will be greatly appreciated by a new graduate.

Other Ceremonies

Graduation leis aren’t just for graduation. They can be purchased for a wide range of different ceremonies including weddings, parties and even celebrating a new career. Leis are also wonderful as gifts for special occasions like Father’s Day, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day and anniversaries. Anytime you want to show your love and affection for another, a lei is a brilliant, beautiful option. Particularly, if they are passing onto a new stage in their lives.

 

Wearing a lei for graduation is a tradition all around American colleges and high schools. But which lei should I wear for graduation? There are leis for men, women and leis that can be worn by both. Leis can be shipped fresh from Hawaii a quickly as overnight.

From the blogger: "In Hawai’i, it’s tradition to give leis at graduation. Leis are made in many different styles. Since I now live on the mainland, I focus on giving graduates ribbon leis since I don’t have easy access to traditional Hawaiian flowers. My updated ribbon version is ideal for graduations because they can be kept as a keepsake for many years to come. This traditional Hawaiian graduate gift is easily personalized, inexpensive, versatile and simple to make. Happy graduation!"
