The end of the school year has come. My sis-in-law is a teacher and here's another project she assigned to me. The purpose is that she knows she can save more with buying raw materials than buying ready made ones. Here's my idea for DIY award ribbons.

DIY Award Ribbons - array of finished ribbons


  • printed award information (my own layout)
  • ribbon of different colors and sizes
  • glue
  • scissors
  • mini safety pins
  • pencil for marking/tracing
  • extra cardboard papers
