Project Instructions

Step: 1

Make about 12 points:
Layer purple 1½-inch ribbon with pieces with 1-inch white ribbon pieces down center of each. Staple each point twice to secure and staple to cardboard backing circle, spacing evenly around the backer.

Step: 2

Prepare flowers and attach to the backing piece with the points.

Step: 3

Make another backing piece with basic double backing streamers in purple and white:
Take 1 piece of each color of the 2-yard ribbons. Lay one on top of the other and fold in half so that the right side of the ribbon still shows on both sides (the top will make a point). Then staple the point onto another cardboard backing circle in 2 rows of 4 double streamers, overlapping slightly.

Step: 4

Add the following with staples or hot glue:
• Wide Silver Mesh Ribbon
• Wide Purple Mesh Ribbon
• Assorted Silver Garlands
• Assorted Purple and White Streamers
• Clear Streamers
• Purple and White Military Braid
• Purple and White Diamondback Chain

Step: 5

To make Loop Ribbon:
Take the 6-inch pieces of silver metallic ribbon and staple the ends of each piece together to create a loop. Then, staple the loops on to the 1-yard piece of silver metallic ribbon, starting from the bottom.

Step: 6

Overlap the loops slightly until you reach the top. Keep in mind the number of loops you will need, depending on what you decide to spell out. Attach to the center of the ribbon backer.

Step: 7

To make cheerleader outfit:
Use the patterns to trace and cut out one purple vest, one white, and one purple skirt.

Step: 8

Use hot glue glue to attach the waist of the purple skirt to the white skirt. Hot glue finished skirt and vest onto bear.

Step: 9

Hot glue on top of flower as shown:
• Small White Bear
• Purple/White Footballs
• Purple “Go Team” Megaphone Charm
• Silver Garland
• Purple Feather Boa

Step: 10

Make a white hanger loop with a 6-inch piece of 1½-inch white ribbon. Staple it well to the top of the backing circle with the streamers.

Step: 11

With hot glue gun, attach the backing with the streamers to the backing with the flower/points. Hot glue the 3rd backing circle to the back of that to finish.
