I thought I posted this yesterday but never saw it show up. I guess I've been gone too long. But I'm baaaack! Anyone miss me?

Remember my computer earrings?
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=45717.0
Well, my pretty little granddaughter is now 2 1/2 years old and never goes out without a hair bow.
So I decided to try my hand at making computer hair bows.....



They are printed on photo paper and then covered with clear duct tape and backed with colored duct tape so they are pretty durable if treated with care (no running around in the rain!)

So what do you think? Cool or stupid?

Super cute!  I'm sure your little one will have an endless variety of darling little bows. Since they seem inexpensive and easy to make, the durability doesn't seem like it would be as important of a factor.

Also thanks for the link to the earring tute.  I'm seeing some new earrings in my future!

I guess the title is a little misleading - maybe I should edit it (if I remember how).
The bows are printed on photo paper and then covered with clear duct tape and backed with colored duct tape (to match the bow). They are way more durable than you would think as long as you don't run around in the rain or bend them... I have computer earrings (made the same way) that are 3 or 4 years old and still in good shape!

Thanks for the compliments everyone. I love being artistic with my computer Smiley

These are fantastic!!  I have not even seen clear duct tape before.  They seem like they would be very sturdy and last a long while.  I love the Hello Kitty and the spider web one the best.   Cheesy
Do they take alot of time to make?  I am sure they prob would.

I am not obsessed with Perty Thangs, I am disciplined...

I have alot to share, all you gotta do is ask.

 
Crochet, x-stitch, Ribbon embroidery, plastic canvas, beadwork, polymer clay, wire work, and now TATTING!!  Please help me learn to knit, then I might be complete.
