1. Draw two circles onto blue card and cut them out with scissors.
2. Now, cut two strips of red card. Using a craft mat, craft knife and ruler, score the card and concertina it.
3. Use PVA glue to stick each of the ends together, creating a circle. Once you have done that, gradually pinch the inner folds to form a wheel. Use a glue gun to fill the small hole in the centre to ensure the wheel holds together.
4. Cut two strips of blue card. Now you have these, cut a small triangle out of one end of each strip to create two ribbon tails.
5. Grab your concertina wheel and one of the blue circles. Glue the blue circle over the centre of the red wheel.
6. Now flip the red wheel over. Get your two blue ribbon tails and glue these down. Now glue the second blue circle over the centre of the red wheel again.
7. Now you have your badge base, its time to to add your sentiment. Use gold glitter, self adhesive alphabet letters to create you 'BEST DAD' message.
8. Turn your badge back over and use a glue gun to add a badge pin - you can also cover the base of the pin with a small strip of blue card and a glue gun.
