There are numerous styles for award ribbons. If your club or group is in need of creating its own specialised award ribbons, and you would rather make them yourself than have them printed for you, it can be done. Furthermore, it can be done relatively inexpensively. The easiest style is the basic flat ribbon with the award written on the ribbon. For making this type of fabric ribbon, all you'll need is a few basic crafting supplies.

Cut out a rectangular ribbon from the fabric. It's best to use a fabric that doesn't fray naturally. Knits and felt won't fray but may be heavier than you like. However, you can treat any fabric to stop it from fraying.
Treat the edges of your ribbon with a fraying prevention product, like Fray-Check, if your fabric can fray. Allow the treatment to dry.
Write or print your award message on the ribbon. Print it by hand using glitter glue, or print the message on a white T-shirt transfer and iron it onto the ribbon. If using the transfer method, follow all directions supplied by the transfer package. If using glitter glue, allow the glue to dry thoroughly.
Glue the pin backing onto the back of the ribbon, along the top. Use a craft glue that is suitable for bonding metals and fabric. Allow to dry.
