I am LOVING this super cute Glitter Felt Hairbow - Rainbow Set. I think I am weak for anything that comes in multiple color options, and the touch of glitter pushes these over into awesomeness. This set will be perfect for a gift for my niece (if my girls don't steal it first...)
It uses metal die cuts that you place on a platform then just hand-crank through the machine - super simple. Here's the pack where I got the bow die-cut:
Here's an example of what it looks like after it cuts through the paper - the cut pieces are still laying on top of the dies. It cuts paper like a dream. I pushed it to the limit with felt, and it didn't quite cut it all the way through, but it did mark it prominently so i could just whiz around it with scissors.
If you want to make these into hairbows, just hot glue an alligator clip to the back:
You could stop there - or you could go all-out with the sparkle! To add glitter, I gave the bows a light dusting of spray glue adhesive, then immediately sprinkled fine glitter all over.
Then I glued some cute paper to some chipboard (or you can use a cereal box) and cut slits so that the clips could slide through:
It's all about the presentation - ROY.G.BIV!
Love the dimension on these - - so simple, but so cute:
Perfect for little girls, but not limited to them. I might be delusional, but I think with a messy bun, even adults can rock the glitter bow! yes? no?
