.:Bow Holder:.

Since I am obviously out of control with making bows/clippies for my daughter, I decided it was time to make a decent bow holder for her. No more ribbon just hanging off the side of her bookshelf!

My friend Natalie has one that she uses for her sweet little girl, so I based my idea off of hers. She has a cute crown cutout, which I wasn't able to find, but I still really like how mine turned out!

MATERIALS
- Cutout shape
- Scrapbook paper
- Ribbon to match
- Modge podge
- Scissors
- Hot glue gun/glue sticks
- Embellishments (optional)

Start out with your shape and your scrapbook paper. Trace the shape on the back of the scrapbook paper. If you are using a letter like me, make sure you reverse it!

Cut out the shape, and modge podge it onto your cutout shape. You can sand the edges if you want to. (I didn't).

Glue your embellishment on. (If you have one).

Turn your shape over, and hot glue your ribbon strands to the back. You can see that I used rick rack instead of traditional ribbon. Anything goes!

Hot glue a ribbon to the top to act as a hanger.

Hang on the wall, add the bows/clippies, and admire! I really love how Reece's looks with the other decorations in her room!
