  1. The ribbon award is very easy to make; take a 12-inch long and two-inch wide paper strip and accordion fold it, pictures 3 and 4.

  2. Form a circle and glue the ends together, picture 5.

  3. Pinch into the middle of the

circle and glue it so that it remains intact.

  1. Glue the paper circle on the front and back of the medal, picture 6.

  2. Glue the ribbons on the back; picture 7.

Your medallion is now ready, keep it aside.

For the Best Dad trophy

  1. Cut one cup about 1/3 from the bottom, picture 8 and 9, and leave it aside (this is the base of the trophy).

  2. Straighten the cup’s remaining part to about 8-cm length, picture 10. This will be the neck of the trophy.

  3. Roll and glue it; picture 11.

  4. Then cut two strips of 10x1cm from the remaining piece; pictures 12 and 13, (these will be the handles).

  5. You now have a cup, two handles, the neck and the base of the trophy. Warp them in a nice golden paper; pictures 14 and 15.

  6. Glue the handles to the cup, neck to the base and then the whole cup to the neck; pictures 16, 17 and 18.

Our trophy is ready, just write “World’s Best Dad” on some other piece of paper and then glue it on the front side

or you can write using a marker. Similarly, write “Dad of the Year” or anything you like on the medallion and surprise your dad!

Happy Father’s Day!
