When I asked my daughter what to get my granddaughter for Christmas, she gave me a list. On that list was a hair bow holder. My first thought was, "Hmmmm, maybe I could make one." So I gave it a shot, and this is what I came up with. I think it turned out pretty cute!
Here is how I made it:
Wooden background shape: I purchased this at Wal-Mart. I think it was $1.00. I brought it home, sanded it a little, and spray painted it white.
Label behind initials: Nestabilities Labels 8 (largest) (with the edges chalked)
Initials: Storybook Cricut cartridge cut at 3 1/2" and 3 1/4" (I think -- I made this last week)
Flourish: Sizzlit die
Butterfly: Martha Stewart
After the paint dried, I wrapped ribbon around the wooden shape. Then I put the Nestabilities label on top of that. I added the initials, and then "painted" the whole thing with Stickles to give it a bit of shimmer. I then added the flower and the butterfly, along with a couple of little pearls. I used Fabri-Tac to glue the ribbons onto the back of the wood. At the end of the ribbons, I glued some pink flowers. And that's it. Other than the painting, I think it took me less than an hour to make this. I showed it to my daughter this weekend, and she loved it. Hopefully, my granddaughter will like it too.
Thanks for looking, and I hope you are inspired!
