personalized teacher signs How to make a Paper Prize Ribbon customized baby gifts

The Kentucky Derby is coming up in just a couple of weeks. ?Yesterday I pulled out my Derby Prize Ribbon decorations from last year and thought I’;d share with you a tutorial on how to make the paper prize ribbons. Today is 10 minute Tuesday and this is definitely?a “;do-able”; 10 minute project!

Sometimes these ribbons are also called Paper Rosettes. ?They are really simple to make and you can change the look and size of them as you like. ? I’;ve been making them for a few years now and?love adding them as a finishing touch to a craft project.

They’;re perfect for Kentucky Derby crafts, but you can also use them for a lot of other occasions. Here I’;ve added one to a “;Celebrate”; banner (tutorial coming later this month).

I also added one to a Halloween wreath that I made a couple of years ago.

If you’;d like to make one (or two or three) as a Kentucky Derby Decoration, you can buy the printable for the centers of the ribbons in the shop (there are also a bunch of other Kentucky Derby Party printables there too).

–; 12″; x 12″; piece of patterned cardstock

-Glue Gun


-Bone Folder, or scoring tool

-Square of cardstock (it can be any colorpersonalized teacher signs, it won’;t show)

-Circle of cardstock for the center.

Begin with 2 strips of 2” wide 12” scrapbook paper. ?(you can also use 1″; x 12″; scrapbook paper if you want a smaller rosette)

Start by scoring the paper every 1/2” using a scoring tool. There are other ways to do this but if you are going to make a lot of these I’d recommend a scoring tool, saves loads of time!

If you don’;t have a scoring tool, just use the bone folder or other plastic tipped item (like the lid of a pen) and make a mark every 1/2″; all the way down the paper. Just use a ruler and as somewhat soft surface, like a magazine.

Next, fold both 12” strips accordion style. Apply a bit of adhesive to the end of one of the strips and nest the 2nd strip it.

Repeat for the other side so that you have one big circle (you can also use hot glue if you prefer).

Flatten out the circle and using a hot glue gun attach a square of paper to the back. This will flatten out the rosette and keep it in place.

Now all you have to do is flip the rosette over and use the hot glue to attach the circle to the center of the folded paper. You can embellish it as you like with ribbon, glitter, stickers, etc.

The wider the paper strips the bigger the rosette. ?If you want a really large rosette like the ones from these Derby Centerpieces?you might need 3 strips of paper.

You can also change how “;condensed”; the rosette is and change the size of it as you like. ?Push it in more and it’;s smaller, pull it out and it becomes larger.

For the Derby ribbons above, I also punched the edges of a couple of the rosettes with a decorative border punch before I folded them. ?You can be as creative as you like and adapt the rosettes to make them your own style.

Here I’;ve added a small rosette to a plastic horse I purchased at the craft store.

These are a great way to use old sweaters or revitalize an old scarf by adding pockets to the end. The pockets are great for holding keys, cell phones or just keeping your hands warm.Supplies1 old suit jacketsweatersbuttonslining fabric (I used fleece)sewing machineUse either coordinating sweaters or an old scarf. Cut off the ends of the jacket sleeves, mine average a finished length of around 9 inches. Cut them a little longer than you want so you can fold them down making a finished edge.

The Arts & Crafts movement was founded by a number of craftsmen, notably William Morris said “Have nothing in your home that you do not believe to be beautiful or useful" which was the mantra of Arts & Crafts furniture. Simple forms were used as their was no room for any additional decoration – natural materials were imperative, with their natural qualities being used as decorative features, such as the knots and grain of wood, along with exposed joints to show off the hand-worked crafts.

What better way to make your casserole dish easy to carry and keep it warm? This casserole carrier is a classic among my friends and family, and it is one of my "go to" wedding gifts. Over the years, I have used and tweaked different patterns until I now have the best yet. One of the features that I have added is being able to remove the carrying dowels because who doesn't need to wash something that food is carried in? I changed the placement of the velcro to accommodate variations in your pan size, and I skipped the quilting of the insulation to the fabric. You can also use it for cakes or brownies...anything that fits in your 9x13" pan. You can make it fairly plain (and personalize it if you have an embroidery machine) like the one shown here, or pick out any print you like. My instructions are simple, but you do need some basic sewing knowledge. A beginner should be able to make one of these. If you don't know how to sew, there are lots of online free sewing tutorials, so check them out. This instructable would be way too long if I try to teach you sewing basics.
