1. Go to your blog dashboard and go to Template tab .
2. Back up your template.
3. After back up click on Edit HTML.

.wrappercbt12

  margin: 50px auto;
  width: auto;
  height: auto;
  background: transparent;
  position: relative;
}
.ribboncbt123
{
  font: bold 20px Sans-Serif;
  text-align: center;
  transform: rotate(45deg);
  -o-transform: rotate(45deg);
  -ms-transform: rotate(45deg);
  -moz-transform: rotate(45deg);
  -webkit-transform: rotate(45deg);
  position: relative;
  padding: 7px 0;
  left: -25px;
  top: 7px;
  width: 160px;
  background-image: linear-gradient(top, #129, #12f);
  background-image: -o-linear-gradient(top, #129, #12f);
  background-image: -ms-linear-gradient(top, #129, #12f);

  width: 86px;
  height: 88px;
  overflow: hidden;
  position: absolute;

5. Now Search for this :  <b:include data=’post’ name=’post’/> and replace it with this code.

<b:if cond=’data:blog.url == data:blog.homepageUrl’>
<b:if cond=’data:post.isFirstPost == &quot;true&quot;’>
<div class=’wrappercbt12′>
<div class=’ribboncbt-wrapper12′><div class=’ribboncbt123′>NEW</div></div>
<div id=’first-post’>
<b:include data=’post’ name=’post’/>
</div></div>
<b:else/>
<b:include data=’post’ name=’post’/>
</b:if>
<b:else/>
