  • Step 1: Cut ribbon tails to the desired length and adhere to the back of the circle with fabric glue. Now present your masterpiece to the winner.

  • Step 2: Glue the button in the middle of the inside border to conceal any part of the cardboard circle that may still be showing.
  • Step 3: Fold the inside circle with the second spool of ribbon in the same manner as the outside border.
  • Step 4: Fold the ribbon back and forth in an accordion motion around the outside of the circle to create the outside border.
  • TIP: Press each fold firmly onto the fabric glue making sure it adheres properly.
  • Step 5: Cut a 3-inch-diameter circle from the card stock and cover one side of it with fabric glue.
