Make An Awareness Ribbon
Awareness ribbons are colorful ribbons worn in to bring awareness & show support for a specific cause.
You need: felt scraps that are at least 8” long & 3” wide, rotary cutter & mat, ruler, & glue gun. Pin tack backing & earring posts are optional.

Glue the fold in the ribbon together using the glue gun.

Now let’s make awareness ribbon pins!
To make a medium size ribbon, cut a strip that measures 1/2” x 4.5”.

Repeat the previous steps: pull the felt strip lengthwise, then form your ribbon. You may or may not glue this depending on it’s application.

This size also works for pins. You can also use this as an appliqué for a bag or pillow. For those projects no glue, just thread.

For a small ribbon, the felt should be 3/8” x 2”.
