  • Step 1:To make the present, cut a 1-1/4 inch piece of the yellow grosgrain ribbon. Heat seal the cut ribbon ends.
  • Step 2:Cut a 1-1/4 inch piece of the aqua satin ribbon and glue it down the center of the present. To make the bow, cut a 10 inch piece of the satin ribbon. Tie a bow and glue it to the top of the present.
  • Step 3:To make the birthday cake, cut three pieces of the turquoise 7/8 inch grosgrain ribbon to the following lengths: 1-1/2, 1-1/8, and 7/8 inch. Glue them together with the longest piece as the bottom and the smallest piece as the top of the cake. Overlap each layer approximately 1/4 inch.
  • Step 4:To make the candle, cut a 1 inch piece of white ribbon. Using the yellow ribbon cut out the shape of a flame and glue onto the candle. Glue the candle to the top backside of the cake.
  • Step 5:Trim the green leaves off the ribbon roses. Glue the roses to the top of each layer of cake.
  • Step 6:Next, wrap the clips. Cut a length of white ribbon long enough to wrap each clip. Apply glue to one end of the ribbon and glue to the underneath of the top side of clip, with the clip open. Close the clip and apply glue to the top while pulling the ribbon over the end and press it onto the top of the clip. Continue gluing the ribbon to the pinching end of the clip.
  • Step 7:Glue the present onto one wrapped clip and the birthday cake onto the other wrapped clip.
