Valentine's Hair Bows Day 2

Valentine's Heart Clippie Tutorial

Supplies Needed:
16 1/2 inch strip of Heart Ribbon (5/8 inch width)
4 3/4 inch strip of White Grosgrain Ribbon (3/8 inch width)
2 1/2 inch strip of White Grosgrain Ribbon (3/8 inch width)
Metal Clippie
Needle and Thread
Straight Pin
Hot Glue Gun
Wood Burner Tool (optional)


Directions:
Step 1: Seal the edges of each piece of ribbon with the wood burner tool.  If you do not have this tool, then you can skip this step.

Step 2: Glue the long white strip of ribbon to the clippie.


Step 3: Loop the heart ribbon around two times and place the straight pin in the center.  Fold out the loops so that you start to form a bow shape.


Step 4: Sew up the center of the bow.


Step 5: Pinch the bow at the center to give the bow shape.


Step 6: Holding onto the center of the bow, wrap the thread around the bow tightly.  Tie a knot on the back side.


Step 7: Glue the finished bow to the prepared clippie at the center.

Step 8: Glue the small strip of the white grosgrain ribbon around the clippie and bow to hide the thread.


Enjoy your super cute Valentine's Day Clippie!  I made two and sold them as a pair for pig tails!

  2. Amy,
    I used to make those and haven't in a long time. We are in need of some around here for my daughter and thank you so much for the tutorial. It will help me refresh my skills. I love the Valentines ribbon and I have some Hello Kitty ribbon that needs using.
