Festive Ribbon Dragon - Step 1

1. Cut out the body shapes shown here from different colors of craft foam - or use our template. Decorate the shapes with colored glitter glue and let them dry.

2. Cut a length of wired ribbon (ours is about 3 1/2 feet long by 2 1/2 inches wide). Lay it flat and use tacky glue to attach the body shapes. Be sure the glue is dry before curling the ribbon.
