Amy Merrick, (who is a creative genius when it comes to handmade items) has created step-by-step instructions for creating your own prize ribbons. Merrick says that she was inspired the film National Velvet, which got her mind going on horse ribbons.

If you've got ribbon, some staples and a little extra time, this is a pretty (and not-too-difficult) craft. For the complete instructions on making prize ribbons, check out Design*Sponge at the link below.

Implications - Other items you will need to create your own ribbons include glue, card stock, large buttons and an iron. This would be a great craft to do with kids if you are stuck inside on a rainy or snowy day!
