Bows and Holders

Sorry guys, with the recent holiday and other chores I didn't get to do much stamping last week.  However I did complete one project that I am proud of so I wanted to share it with you.  I generally like to keep things here Stampin’ Up! and other than a half of yard of light pink grosgrain ribbon(a layer in one of the bows that you can’t even see in the picture), everything else is non-Stampin’ Up!   I saw the cutest bow holder over on Etsy.  It was just adorable but they wanted $30 for it and I don't have that type of money to spend let alone on something as frivolous as a bow holder.  So I had to figure out how to make one with stuff I already had at home.  I figured it out with stuff I already had except for the fact that I had to go get some tulle.  And here is what I came up with, isnt it cute!?

Bow Dress

This bow dress has 5 ribbons to attach your boutique bows and clips for storing and displays.  3 of the ribbons are white and the other two are hard to see they are a pink organza (I think that is what it is called) with a kind of loopy eyelet border.  Here is the close up of the three bows I made to give with the holder.   bows

This was so much fun to make but it sure took some time figuring it out.  I hope you all enjoy.  Hopefully tonight I can get some stamping time in and will have something to show you tomorrow!


Have a Stamperific Day!

That is way cute. Now I am torn over whether or not I should steal that idea or your can idea for Alli. Though I will probably do the can as I don't think I could make bows that cute. Where did you find instructions online?
