Here’s how I made some simple prize ribbons for the pony race winners at last week’s Mary Poppins party!
crepe paper streamers
hot glue gun
lighter or fray check to seal ends
I cut out circles from my cardboard, nothing fancy…I used something hanging around my craft room-spool of thread or something. They were about 2″ across. Then I cut out pieces of ribbon about 4-5″ long, with the ends cut at an angle. I cut my streamers into 14″ pieces.
First glue the ribbons near the bottom of the circle.
Then I folded the streamer in half like so.
Dab some glue around the edge…
Then place your streamers down, pinching to pleat it around the edge. I glued it-folded side in.
Keep doing that all around the circle, then tuck the end under, trimming if necessary.
Then I glued a pin onto the back of each prize ribbon.
I designed some simple tags, printed them on cardstock, and punched them out with my 2″ circle punch, and glued them on as well. (if you’d like the printables I made, send me an email and I’d be happy to email it to you!)
Easy, but a fun little party detail!
You could customize these for other competitions or other party themes…equestrian parties, etc… (don’t laugh, I would have LOVED one of those when I was younger) hehe.
