Prep for Kody's Birthday: Winner's Medals

I wanted something that was totally unique and fun.  I also wanted the kids to feel really special.  I thought Winner's Medals would do the trick.  My version of medals at least.
 
 
  I found some super simple supplies.

 
I went and found washers that I thought looked like the right size.

 
I got navy blue grosgrain ribbon (grosgrain is a little more masculine than any thing satin).  I used about 28" of ribbon per medal.

 
I melted the ends of the ribbon with Matt's torch.  Then I just hot glued the ribbon to the back of the washers.

 
I could have stamped the lettering, but I don't own metal stamps.  I do own a Sharpie.  Do you think they will be a hit with the boys?
