What you'll need
• Standard size cupcake liners
• Mini size cupcake liners
• 4 in. of a wide ribbon (at least ½ in. wide)

• Pin backs or magnets (optional)
• Low-temp hot glue gun & glue sticks

How to make it
1. Create the top part of your award ribbon by layering your cupcake liners. This works best by
pressing out the liners till they are almost flat, and then flipping them inside out, so that the
patterned side curls in, instead of out. Tip: you can trim standard-sized cupcake liners down to
get a bigger variety in sizes. Then using your low-temp hot glue gun, attach a small liner to a
large liner, keeping both centered.
2. Now take your wider ribbon & trim a piece to 14 in. Line the ends up and cut however you’d like,
I prefer tails, but you can also cut diagonally. Tip: lining the ends up allows for both sides to be
exactly the same. Now lay your ribbon down on a flat surface and create a ‘V’, use a dot of hot
glue at the fold to keep them together in that shape. And then turn the ‘V’ shaped ribbon up-
side down.
3. Now take your thinner ribbon and trim a piece to 12 in. Line the ends up and cut however you’d
like. Now lay this ribbon down over the larger ribbon already glued in a ‘V’ and line it up evenly,
attach with hot glue.
Tip: Glue only the top third of the second ribbon to allow the tails to hang freely over the larger
one—it will look better when finished.
4. Now you are ready to attach the cupcake liners to the ribbon. Simply add a dot of hot glue to
the top of your ribbons and center it to the back of your cupcake liners.
5. Use the provided templates to cut shapes to create the center of your award ribbon. These can
be cut from any color paper you have, photos, or cards you want to reuse. You can even add
glitter. Glue to the center of your award ribbon for a personal touch.
6. You can finish these however you’d like. If you want to make it wearable, glue a pin back in the
center of the back. If you’d like to make it a magnet, simply glue one on.
