Bow-ish Clippies!

Sunday, May 23, 2010

I know...there is a previous post of mine where I say "we don't really like bows, we like clips in this house..." or something to that effect. I'm s-l-o-w-l-y coming around. Don't get me wrong though, if you call my kids 'bowheads', I'll be deeply offended. I found a website that made a tutorial from me COMPLETELY unnecessary--yippee! This lady can make some bows! Here ya go: When all you need for a project is a clip, ribbon and hot glue--who can resist??

So, I made these cute little ones by wrapping a regular clip. Easy and fun!

After I made those according to the website directions on how to wrap the ribbon, I went wrapping-clippy-crazy!! Here are some alligator clips that I wrapped. I tried a double bow-like thing for these. These aren't on the website, but once you get the got it!

Here's the side view so you can see that I only wrapped the top part...not the bottom or the part you pinch.
THEN--I went to Hob Lob and found these crazy things. Big flat top part, teeth to hold my little girl's super thick, curly hair! Faboo! I'm imagining all kinds of fun stuff to do with these...

...but then I wrapped it again. HA! Double loop bow anyone??

Side view of this beaut!

These next ones are also on that website...but I actually already knew how to do these. Score one tiny one for me!
I guess this could be considered Part 3 in the 'Clippy Crazy!' series. Although, they are quite bow-ish...but still clippy!!!! I won't give up the clippy!!!!
Ok, multi-tasking time is over--LOST finale is on and it's getting good!
