I’ve just got home from watching my son take part in school sports day. At our school sports day they try to have a range of activities so everyone has a chance to shine. Inevitably there are always children who win lots of the events and a few who don’t do quite so well. You don’t win a prize or rosette at our school sports day, but each team wins points which go towards the house total for the year.
My son is very prize focussed, so I thought it would be nice to make him a rosette to wear when he gets home from school later. The rosette is really easy to make and used a few craft items I had in my craft box, mostly cupcake cases and Bostik Glu Dots. You can make rosettes for all kinds of different occasions; from sports days, parties, birthdays or you could even do your own dog show and give them out to the prize winning pooches!
Make Your Own Cupcake Case Prize Rosette
You will need:
3 coloured cupcake cases
A safety pin
Some sticky tape
Two foam circles
Bostik Glu Dots
Some craft foam
Coloured sticky paper
To Make Your Own Cupcake Case Prize Rosettes:
Begin by sticking your cupcake cases together. I flattened mine out and glued them together with glu dots, so that the coloured side was facing up.
Take one of your foam circles and stick this to the back of the rosette, my foam circles were self adhesive, but use glue if yours aren’t. Using some sticky tape, tape the safety pin to the foam circle.
Take your craft foam and carefully cut two lengths of the foam to act as the rosette “ribbon”. Cut a V in the bottom of each one. Use sticky tape to fix this on the back of the rosette.
Turn your rosette over, you can start to decorate the front of it now. Take your last foam circle and stick this in the middle of the cupcake case. I then cut a number 1 out of sticky backed paper and stuck this to the foam circle. My rosette was now complete. All I needed was a sports day superstar to pin it to.
This is a very sweet little craft. It’s quick and easy with minimal mess and great for kids to make too. You can mix it up and use any colours or patterns you like!
