How to Use Awareness Ribbon TemplatesOne of the simplest ways to use the awareness ribbon template is to print the template onto the relevant colored paper and attach this to a project. Interesting variations can be achieved by using white or another light colored paper and rubber stamping over this with an appropriate colored ink. Sections of the stamped image can be colored to add further detail. The pink breast cancer awareness ribbon shown above has been created by stamping over white paper with pink ink and highlighting sections of the image with colored pencils.
Tips: - remember to ink the edges of the ribbon for a professional looking finish. This also helps to highlight the ribbon design.
