Handmade Bows

I am addicted.
After seeing Denise's cuteness, and how easy the tutorial looked I just couldn't help myself.

They are so easy to make, and really, just make me feel super proud for making them myself :)

After deciding that I had to try them I went searching through the house for a magazine. Sadly the only one I had on hand was a "Self" magazine that my almost three year old had decided to rip the front cover off while waiting in line at the grocery store a few months ago. Fun purchase!

Anyways, there weren't a lot of pages I wanted to showcase in bows... uh, like this one, where after I was done I realized boasted a beautiful pair of lips. Ha!

But I did manage to get a few cute ones.

And I also tried making one with wrapping paper.

Next I think I'll try scrapbook paper..... and maybe some with plain old newspaper...and ribbon...oh! and maybe a few with old children's books (you know the ones that my two year old has ripped half the pages out!)
Ahhh, the possibilities are endless!

Yup. I am majorly, helplessly addicted.


  1. Nicely done! They look awesome!

  2. oooh those are adorable!! I am going to have to give those a try. Thanks for sharing all your fantastic craftiness :)

  3. too cute. sara. bow making is addicting!! like i said, i'll NEVER BUY A BOW AGAIN. i love the bow made from gift wrap, TERRIFIC. i'm stealing that idea from you.

    wish we could make bows together.


Thanks so much for leaving your comments. I absolutely love hearing from you :)
