Make a Leadbeater’s Possum Ribbon to Wear
It celebrates Eric Wilkinson’s rediscovery on 3rd April 1961 of Leadbeater’s Possums at Cambarville (near Marysville). Before then it had not been seen alive for more than 50 years and was presumed extinct.
To make you own special ribbon, with a cute possum peeping out, follow these easy instructions.
You need some GREEN ribbon about 1.5 cms wide. Cut a piece 21 cms. long; or you can use green paper; just cut the ribbon shape (a long rectangle, with end trimmed into points), 21 cms long x 1.5 cms wide.
If you don’t have green ribbon or green paper, print your own using the attached Green Ribbons x 12 below the instructions. This will make 12 ribbons (for you and your friends).
1. Print and cut out the possums on the sheet below these instructions.
2. Holding the right tip of the ribbon in your right hand, twist the other end around and over the front to get the curved loop. When you are happy with the shape fix it in position with a small piece of tape or a dab of glue.
3. Place the possum inside the loop of the ribbon (white side out!), so that its head is pointing up and the tail is on the left.
Glue or staple the possum and the ribbon together.
4. Fold the possum’s head down over the crossed ribbons and fold its tail across the front.
5. Use a small safety pin to attach your ribbon.
6. Wear your Leadbeater’s Possum Awareness Week Ribbon with pride!
