  • $\begingroup$ Use a bezier curve following the global shape you want, then assign it a bevel object (a segment may be ok here). After that you'll probably have to adjust the twist (ctrl+T) and the weights (alt+S) of the bezier curve's control points. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Guys, in my opinion, on 4 answers I gave on the last 24 hours, 3 can be considered to be an answer to a tutorial request, more or less. $\endgroup$

The base is to use a Bezier curve with a bevel object (which needs to be a curve too).

For the overall shape curve, add it by : ShiftA then choose 'curve' and 'Bezier'.

For the ribbon curve, add it the same way and flatten it : enter edit mode Tab, then scale it 0 along Y (as its shape is by default curved on Y) SY0.

Come back to object mode Tab.

At this step, you have two curves like this :

enter image description here

Now select the first one (overall shape curve) and assign it the second curve as bevel object (in the geometry part of the curve tab, as shown below) :

enter image description here

You can see that the ribbon curve is propagated along the overall shape curve.

But the ribbon is a bit large, so scale it down a bit : select the ribbon curve and scale it down S and move the mouse :

enter image description here

Now all is about extruding the overall shape curve. Select it, enter edit mode, select an extremity vertex (control point) and type E and move the mouse.

enter image description here

Alternatively, you can also extrude with LMB holding the Ctrl key simultaneously.

enter image description here

Eventually, you may need to subdivide some parts. Same can be done selecting two control points and with W then subdivide :

enter image description here

With these basic operations, you can 'draw' your shape.

Last operations to know :

You will need to twist your curve CtrlT then move the mouse:

enter image description here

And you will need to adjust the ribbon size AltS then move the mouse:

enter image description here
