Glue the ends of the ribbon (or a thin strip of paper) to the palms to look like they are connected. One ribbon end to one palm and the other end of the same ribbon to another palm.

Your HUG is ready. You can make the ribbon longer or shorter as needed. Write in your message, put it in an envelope, and send it to your friend! She/He will love it, and give you the biggest hug ever in return!

Some interesting variations to try:

You can also glue the Hug onto another card paper and make it a 3D Card!


Draw a human figure on a card paper that is folded in half. In this case, make sure the ribbon is long enough to resemble arms and hugging hands. Glue only where it overlaps the body and leave the ends loose. You can add googly eyes to the face on the figure or even try it with a photo of yours!
