Looking for unique Valentines to give this year? I love this adorable paper brooch. A Valentine’s award ribbon brooch is a fun way to tell your friends and family that they are award-winning loved ones. I had so much fun making these, I hope you do, too!
- Scallop Circle Punch
- Heart Punch
- Circle Punch
- Scrapbook Paper
- Glue Dots
- Ribbon and/or Twine
- Optional: Embellishments
Step 4: Use glue dots to secure the paper ribbons to the heart/circle combo. If you want, use the back of the scissors to gently curl the ends of the paper ribbons, just like you would with curling ribbon.Step 5: This project is all about layering. Glue the small award ribbon to a large, scalloped circle shape.Step 6: I cut several long strips of paper and pieces of ribbon to create the base of the project. This part is also lots of fun! Play around with various ribbons and papers until you find something you like.Step 7: After the award ribbon is assembled, glue another circle shape to the back of the award. This will cover up any messy bits from the other ribbons.
Step 8: Glue a pin back to the back of the award ribbon, creating a brooch. I used a glue gun because it was handy but even glue dots would secure the pin back to the paper.That’s it! Isn’t so cute? I just gave a gift to my coworker and used this brooch as the gift topper. I just love it.I also made a brooch in non-traditional colors. I think these would make good birthday gifts for co-workers. Just a little something to make them feel special.
