You might want to try a solder splice if you are going to solder and cover the solder joint with heat shrink anyways. Or you can split the ribbon cbale back so all of the wires are loose. Then tin the wires in a small solder fountain using a no-clean or a RMA flux. Do not use water soluble since it will cause long term reliability issues. The solde reach wire on. The solder splice is a slick little idea though adn they come in a range of sizes.
