Gosh, thanks everybody for such sweet comments. I enjoyed making these.
These are great! How did you make them? Any chance of a tut?
Please? Pretty please?
Thanks so much. These are so easy to make. I will put together a set of instructions for you.
I think they are lovely, but I have to ask- what are clippies and what are they used for?
They are like little barrettes that clip your hair back. They are worn like this: http://ny-image1.etsy.com/il_fullxfull.42030053.jpg
I really like these. I was trying to find this kind of clippy (minus the decorations, wanting to make my own for my aunts daughter) but couldn't. Where did you get the blak clippies?
I found my clippies at http://www.ribbonandbowsohmy.com
. Her prices are really great. You can also get them at Sally Beauty Supply or any local beauty supply in your area. I used the double pronge kind, but the single prong works just as well and you can get them at Hobby Lobby.
adorable, adorable, adorable. my 14 year old niece will love these, and if you don't mind, i'm stealing this idea.
You will have so much fun making these. I forgot to mention that I used 3/8" ribbon.
... did you make these the no slip verson?
I ordered some non-slip from Etsy. I hear the non-slip works well. She has fine whispy hair, so the non-slip will be a great feature.
would love to know what type of glue you used - all the glues i've tried to use with grograin (or any ribbon for that matter) bleeds through. can you share the kind you use?
thanks so much!
I used the best glue ever. It's called Beacon's 3-in-1 Advanced Craft Glue. It instantly grabs, dries fast, and you still have time to manipulate your material before it dries, but it still holds on tight. It has no lumps like hot glue would leave behind. It is clear and doesn't bleed through. I got it at Hobby Lobby for $3.47, but you could probably find it at like Hancock's or Walmart as well.
