Use whatever ribbon you like- I used rick rack and Papertrey's twill ribbon to decorate the hood and make a handle. The rickrack I attached with white glue, the twill with Tombow. The handle is 4.5 inches long, with tombow on about 1 inch of each end. Attach it to the inside front, facing you. Make the handle as long as you'd like.
Turn the carriage on it's side, and put white glue on the upper half of 2 spiral clips, then place them close together and near the bottom of the base for the wheels. At the same time, glue some flowers where the hood would connect. Let the glue dry, turn the carriage over, and do the same to the other side.
