Cut 6 six-inch strips of #9 ribbon (Color A) and 7 six-inch strips of #3 ribbon (Color B)
Cut 6 six-inch strips of #9 ribbon (Color B) and 6 six-inch strips of #3 ribbon (Color A)
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.
Staple the points onto a cardboard shield or backing.
With Color 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.
With Color 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.
Using #9 ribbon, cut 8 thirty-inch streamers. (This length can vary depending on the desires of the designer.) Make 5 of the streamers using color A and 4 using color B.
- If desired, put lettering on the streamers. Use pre-made letters or make them using glue and glitter.
- Cut another 30" streamer of either color A or B. Lay this streamer shiny side up on the table.
- Working to the left and alternating colors, lay down 4 streamers. They should overlap at the top and fan out towards the bottom. Staple these together. Follow the same procedure for the remaining streamers. Staple all streamers together.
