Craft-Dee BowZ first blog hop

Welcome to the first ever Craft-Dee BowZ Blog Hop. This months blog hop is featuring a Valentine theme. If you hopped here by way of Patti’s blog  then you are in the right place!! Otherwise you might wish to start at the Craft-Dee BowZ blog to become eligible for a Craft-Dee BowZ tool and a spool of beautiful ribbon.

We were given three different types of ribbon to use for this blog hop. As soon as I saw the ribbon, I knew what I wanted to do. I used the wired heart ribbon as my base and made a 4 loop bow as big as the Craft-Dee BowZ would go. Then I took the white lace and again made a 4 loop bow but a few sizes smaller. Lastly I took the polka-dotted ribbon and made a 2 loop bow with tails just a size smaller than the lace.  Glued them all together to get this:

After the Helmar 450 glue had dried, I glued it onto a small barrette.

Here is another shot not so close up. Can’t wait for Valentine’s day for her to wear this to school.

Now head on over to Barbara’s blog to see what she has made using the Craft-Dee BowZ. And don’t forget to comment along the way to be entered in the drawing for a Craft-Dee BowZ tool and a spool of ribbon!

 

         Thanks for stopping by,

Hi, Amber. Your barrett bow is just scrumptious! What a great way to make Valentine's Day special. Thanks for sharing your pretty project!

Too cute! I am willing to bet that Donna is already hard at work designing some of these for her granddaughter. Seems to me you could do beautiful coordinating bow hairpieces for bridesmaids with this technique. One of my coworkers coaches cheerleaders......hmmmmmmmm. I think I will have to show her this! Thanks!

Amber this is adorable!! So bright and perky! You can make great headbands this way as well. Job well done!

Amber, your barrette is really beautiful. I really like the look of the three different bow layers. What a great barrette this turned out to be.I'm sure this is even more beautiful in person. Great project.

That is such a darling ribbon bow for one's hair. What little or big one for that matter, wouldn't love to be all decked out with that.

So cute. Your girly will be the most stylish Valentine!

Love this Amber! Such a beautiful hair bow!! I used to make lots of these years ago, but I don't wear them too much anymore. And unfortunately; my daughter isn't into hair too much. Otherwise, I'd be making her a beautiful Valentine's bow just like yours!

Linda said...

Amber your hair bow is exquisite! Bravo!

Laurie said...

So pretty! What girl wouldn't want one!

Great hair decoration, Amber. I will show my daughter-in-law who is making lots of adornments for my only granddaughter.
