Learn how to make an awareness ribbon in a few very simple steps!

awareness ribbon

“An awareness ribbon can only be mass produced and worn on a specific awareness day of the year,” said, no-one ever! And, what’s more not every woman, man and child are made the same.  Whether you have your own cross to bear or know someone who does, you can custom make your very own awareness ribbons.  Simply follow along with this video tutorial by our designer Christel Jules.

We all grow to like different styles and we all come into this earth with different shapes and sizes. When you custom-make your own awareness ribbon you can choose what colors and fabrics you want to use. Then, make your own to either adopt a trend or emulate one already popular.

A little background info about this awareness ribbon

The inspiration for this version of an awareness ribbon and details in this ribbon design came from Christel’s personal battle with a condition called Lichen Sclerosus.  To learn more about what Lichen Sclerosus is and her story to help bring awareness could very possibly save a life!  You can find the helpful blog at her website, Silky stems design studio.

A huge thank you to the talented and wise Bowdabra editor Crystal Harris Donnelly who tirelessly gives of her time and dedication to support all of our design team’s creativity and efforts!  And,  the creator of Bowdabra Sandy Sandler who’s innovative invention is helpful for anyone who has dexterity challenges. Bowdabra is great for anyone who feels they don’t have a creative flair.  Use Bowdabra’s third hand to embellish gifts and decor.  The possibilities are truly limitless!

We are all on this earth to learn and love. When we set aside life’s curve balls and come together with support a whole new world can open up for everyone.  So, please join us in sharing awareness by making your version of this awareness ribbon. Then, comment, and tag someone you care about too!

Editors note:

Did you know that there are over 7,000 rare diseases?  And between 25-30 million Americans are suffering from these diseases. Many have unknown causes.  So it is so very important to bring awareness for funding and research to treat or eradicate these conditions.
