What you'll need

  • 1 sheet of card stock
  • Patterned paper
  • Orange construction paper
  • Glue stick
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • White craft glue
  • ½" wide ribbon in two complementary colors
  • Pattern

Helpful Tip:

Look for pretty ribbons to go on sale, usually immediately following a holiday. Your favorite craft supply store often includes coupons on your local newspaper, or you can sign up to receive them online. Card stock is much sturdier, but construction paper is a suitable and less expensive option.
