Paper Ribbon Decorations

Make a few of these paper ribbon decorations to hang along windowsills, the porch or balcony. This is a very quick and easy homemade party decoration!

Ages: 5 and Up

Here's what you'll need...

• 6 pieces of construction paper (we used red, white and blue)
• Scotch tape
• Stapler
• Masking tape (or something to secure to your wall)

Here's how you make it...

1. Using scotch tape, tape the long edges (or portrait) of your paper together - alternate colors.

2. Fold your paper accordion-style all the way to the end.

3. Put a few staples in one end. Staple as close as you can to the edge.

4. Unfold your paper so it looks like a fan. Secure each end under your window or porch.
