Hi there! It’s me again, Ashley, from Sweet Mama J’s Boutique.
I’ve also started a new blog, called Project Bazaar. It’s still really new, but come check it out!
Remember how I told you that I LOVE The Ribbon Retreat’s beautiful assortment of ribbon, I still cannot get enough!!
Today, I am really excited to share another hair clip tutorial with you!
This Ribbon Flower Bow is so quick and easy to make, you can make one for every outfit.
Let’s gather our supplies and get started!
– Ribbon Flower Bow –
The supplies I used:
Fold your 8 inch length ribbon in half and make a crease. Lay ribbon flat.
Place a small dot of glue in the crease. Take one end of the ribbon and make a sideways loop, (the side of the ribbon that is facing up while the ribbon is laying flat will be still facing up after secured in the middle.)
Repeat with the other end, making a figure 8.
Repeat with other two 8 inch lengths, and all three 7.25 inch lengths.
You will now have 6 figure 8 loops.
Place a small dot of glue on one of your figure 8 loops. Place a second figure 8 loop on top of the first one making an X or butterfly shape. Place a small dot of glue in the middle of your butterfly shape and lay your third figure 8 on top making a flower.
Repeat process with the three remaining figure 8s.
You will now have 2 flowers.
Place a dot of glue in the middle of your larger flower. Press firmly. Place a small dot of glue on the back of your rhinestone. Place the rhinestone in the middle of your flower. Press firmly.
Place a line of glue on the top of your alligator clip.
Place the flower on top. Press firmly.
That’s it! You have a darling Ribbon Flower Bow, ready to go!
