With three little girls, you won’t be surprised to hear that at our house, we have quite the hair bow collection. What may shock you is that even with bunches of bows, we don’t always have quite the right bow in the right color to match a particular outfit.
When the 2015 occasions catalog came out and I caught sight of the Bow Builder Punch (item # 137414), my heart skipped a beat. How adorable! I fell in love with those tiny bows and began to think of a million ways to use them.
One of my daughters asked me if I could make a bow for her because she thought they were so cute. Then it hit me . . . those tiny bows are the perfect size to clip to a little girl’s hair. And they’re so easy to whip up! You could make one using any style and color of paper to match any outfit!
Start by assembling the bow. I like to use Fast Fuse Adhesive (item # 129026) to keep the center of the bow from getting too thick. Next, hot glue the bow to the hair clip of your choice. You might choose to glue the pin vertically or horizontally to the back of the bow (depending on how you plan to secure the bow to her hair).
After making a few bows out of some of my favorite Stampin’ Up! colors, I decided to make sparkly bows, as well. I know . . . you’re not supposed to use punches with Glimmer Paper (item # 135315 and #133719) but I had to break the rules just this once! I couldn’t resist!
I also made a few bows using the Birthday Bash Designer Washi Sheets (item # 137788) in colors that are perfect for summer. You’ll want to cut a small rectangle out of the washi sheet, peel off the back, and carefully adhere it to a piece of Whisper White Cardstock (item # 100730); then go ahead and punch out your bow.
