Whether your kids are graduating from high school or college, or even if they are simply finishing the third grade, it is always nice to celebrate achievements! Celebrating their accomplishment of completing the school year will keep them feeling excited about school and all the wonderful things that they learn there. We designed these easy DIY graduation award ribbons as the perfect little celebratory gesture for the scholars in your family!
To make these graduation award ribbons, all you will need is some pretty paper and a pin back. You can use either text weight or card stock paper for this craft. We used a bit of a combination! Whichever paper you use, make sure that it is white so that the colors in the design will print correctly. There are 5 separate designs of award ribbons, and you also have the option to mix and match the pieces. So cute! Our 5 messages read “Hooray!,” “Congrats,” “Class of 2016,” “Great Job!” and “Yay”. These circular pieces are 2 inches wide, so you can cut them by hand or use a convenient circle punch. Our award ribbons include pieces to make the accordion medallion, the circular message, the “ribbons” hanging from your award, plus a couple of backing pieces to secure your pin. Attach these pieces together using a low temp hot glue gun. Follow our step-by-step photo tutorial below to guide you through assembling your award ribbons! If you would like to turn your award into a shirt pin, simply glue the pin back to the back of the award.
If you are planning a graduation celebration for your graduate, be sure to check out our graduation party invitations! Incorporate our cupcake toppers and wrappers into your party decor, and then use our straw accessories to dress up your graduation drinks. Stay tuned for our simple paper graduation caps to hang around your event or use as photo props! Congrats grads ~ Lia

oh goody, goody. Our youngest grandson graduating high school in KY this month so these are perfect.
Think his Mom will like these, if grandson won’t wear any of them she can use for decorations.
She didn’t always like me when still married to my oldest son but guess she’s decided I wasn’t too bad after all, lol. Have to admit didn’t always like her either,
Haven’t decided yet what is hardest, being mother in law or daughter in law. Only had one mother in law but she never liked my sorry self, good thing she lived in OK and we lived other places.
Enjoy rest of week kids
Yes! These would also be great as party decor 🙂
