1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Powder Puff Snowman on: November 19, 2009 12:23:55 PM
Very cute.  What did you make him with?  Fleece?  Pre-made felt?  Felted wool?

Thank you!  I used a 5" x 4" piece of regular fleece and monogrammed it with a 1/2" font.  I edited my 1" font down to 1/2".  His little face is just a make up powder puff that I bought 3 in a pack from Walgreens and Walmart.  They are the velour (fabric) kind, not the sponge kind, although, you could use the sponge kind.  His nose is orange Sculpey Bake Shop oven-bake clay.  I painted his eyes and mouth with craft paint and his cheeks are done using blush.

This is Buddy the Snowman and he is ready for Christmas.  He can be used as a clippie, a pin, an ornament, or a gift topper.  I made him for my friend, Viola, to wear as a pin.  I'm also going to use him as a clippie.  He's super easy to make.  I'm also going to do some in pink, green, and LSU purple and gold.  Let me know what you think.

Very cute!  I like the color combinations.

Thanks, craftychick!  The ribbon color is sapphire, which is a dark turquoise, and the knot and thread colors are shocking pink.

I love making and selling jewelry, and hair bows has become my latest addiction.  This one is 4.5" wide and made with 1.5" wide ribbon.  I used the Curlz font to monogram it.  It was so much fun to make.  Apparently the style of this bow, the twisted  boutique, is hard to make.  Well, this was my second try.  It was a small challenge, but I thinnk it turned out pretty good.  The mom of the little girl I made it for loved it, as well.  She said, "This one's a keeper."  OMG, that made me feel so good.  Let me know what you think.

5  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / How much should I charge for this hairbow? on: October 05, 2009 02:51:48 PM
I just started making hair bows.  I've been making them for friend's little girls to test out for me.  But, now I am getting orders from moms and don't know how to price them.  This is a monogrammed bow made with 1.5" ribbon and measures about 4.5" wide.  One mom told me she would pay $7.00 for one, which I think is great.  What do you think?  Thanks for your input.

my 5 year old niece would love a set!!! but how do they work on fine hair? Cause she has hair like mine and i have a devil of a time getting clips to stay in
You can use some non-slip on it to stop your clippie from sliding off.  I ordered some non-slip, but it hasn't come in yet.  Some non-slip look like foam and some look like that grippy drawer liner stuff you use in kitchen drawers.  Hopefully it works.

These are great!  Did ya know Target sells these as "Ribbies Clippies" 4 for $10.  I think I need to make me some of these.


I found out by a fluke yesterday that they sell Ribbies at Target.  I saw the Ribbies site a few months ago and thought to myself that I could make those.  You definitely need to make some of these.

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? Grin
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?

Awesome! Thanks!!
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.

These are some clippies I made for a friend's little girl.  They are made of ribbon I found in the scrapbooking section at Hobby Lobby.  They have a ton of really pretty ribbon that come in coordinating color sets.  I am hooked, and I bought five sets of ribbon to make more.  Let me know what you think.
