award ribbon valentines

IMG_7514
Recently while browsing through my local party supply store (yes this is what I sometimes do for inspiration) I got caught up in the streamer aisle. I just couldn't resist all the pretty colors and all the fun polka dots! I bought a handful of streamers knowing that eventually I would come up with something fun to make.

Finally I came up with the idea to turn my streamers into miniature award ribbons to add to a my Valentine cards.

I started at one end folding the streamer, gluing it in between each fold.
(with my terrible chipped nail polish- so sorry!)

I kept folding and gluing

until I had a circular ruffle.

Next, I cut out two strips

and glued them to the back of the ruffle.

I cut out a small circle from pink paper and glued it to the center of the ruffle.

I added a message with pen.

Last I glued it to the surface of a blank card.
