1. Cut 7 six-inch strips of #9 ribbon (Color A) and 7 six-inch strips of #3 ribbon (Color B)
2. Cut 6 six-inch strips of #9 ribbon (Color B) and 6 six-inch strips of #3 ribbon (Color A)
3. Lay a strip of #3 ribbon along a strip of #9 ribbon of the opposite color. The shiny side of both pieces should be facing up. Take the ends of the ribbons between the thumb and forefinger of each hand. Bring the ends together to form a point. Staple the ends together. Continue until all 13 points are made.
A. Position the 7 identical points to form the outside row of points around the shield. Staple the first three points at the 12-, 9-, and 3-o’clock positions. Fill the remaining four points in between the three already positioned.
B. Position the 6 identical points to form the inside row of points around the shield. Fill these points between the points of the outside row.
2. If desired, put lettering on the streamers. Use pre-made letters or make them using glue and glitter.
5. Staple the streamers onto the shield.
To make a 15” two-strand braided chain:
1. Cut a 6’ section of ribbon from each of color A and color B. Use #3 ribbon.
2. Staple the ends of the ribbon together to form an L. One strand should have the shiny side facing upward. The other side should have the dull side facing upward.
3. Make a loop about 3/4” with the dull strand.
4. Make a loop of equal size with the shiny strand. Bring this loop through the loop of the dull strand.
5. Make a loop again with the dull strand and bring it up through the loop of the shiny strand.
6. Follow this procedure, keeping the strands tight. However do no pull the strands too tight or else the chain will begin bending in an arch.
7. When completed, staple the ends of the two strands together.
8. Make a small bow using #3 ribbon. Hot glue the bow onto one end of the chain.
9. Attach to the streamers.
1. Cut 8 six-inch section of #3 ribbon (4 of each color). Staple these together in a radiating manner. Trim the ends on a slant. Hot glue to the top end of the streamers.
2. Cut 4 twelve-inch sections of #3 ribbon (2 of each color). Staples these together and attach as directed above.
