We are huge fans of these cookies in my house!  Dutch Stroopwafels are a two thin, crispy waffle cookies with a thick, gooey caramel layer in between. 

Start making your gold medals by putting each Stroopwafel cookie into its own cello bag and folding the top back so the cookie fits snugly.

Cut your ribbon into 18" strips for an average child-size medal.  If you don't want to use soccer ribbon, gold ribbon or red, white & blue would be fun too! 

Using plain old scotch tape, tape the ribbon onto back of the cello bag.  I used 2 long pieces of tape for extra security.  You will need one piece to go across the top right where the arrow is pointing.  If you don't, the cookie will flop forward when you wear the medal and it will just look goofy.

The last step is to add a little paper star to the front with a little piece of tape.  That's it!  So simple!

You can hang them up as part of the party decorations, give them out when party games are over, or send them home as favors at the end of the party.
