For this tutorial, I am showing you how to create an award ribbon that could be used to celebrate a myriad of occasions. Whether you are celebrating a birthday, Mother’s Day, or a special friend, everyone needs an award ribbon once in their life.
• 4 – 3" white card stock circles
• scalloped scissors
• low-temp glue gun

Step 1 – Begin with one card stock circle and draw with pencil a smaller circle in the center. Using hot glue, adhere your tan silk to the center of the card and start folding ribbon back and forth and gluing in place. Use the smaller drawn circle as a guide for the length of your loops. Travel around the entire circle and glue finishing the end in the center of circle.
Step 4 – Using your scissors, scallop the edge of your third circle.
Step 5 – Stamp your award ribbon message on the front. Decorate the remaining parts of the circle with your glue pen and glitter.
