PKS Guest Designer Day 4

Wow!  Only today and tomorrow left of this fun week as guest designer for Peachy Keen Stamps!

Today I am sharing a hair bow holder that I created for my girls along with a few handmade bows.  My friend Kristi makes adorable bows (you can find her website here: http://bcouturebows.blogspot.com/ And she told me they are so easy to make that I should make some for my girls....well....she was right!  These are only my first few attempts but I think they turned out pretty cute!

I picked up a wooden plaque from Hobby Lobby and just altered it a bit with some alcohol ink.  I had some off white lace that I wanted to use and wanted it to blend in so I used some alcohol ink on it and it magically turned into the perfect color that I needed (I love alcohol ink!) I then clipped out a section of an old dictionary that I picked up from a rummage sale.  The selection are the words "beautiful", "beauty", "beautify".  I then inked up my Peachy Keen Laughy Taffy faces and stamped some faces in the background.  Then, with a few embellishments and some ribbons to hold the bows; my holder was complete.




Now to make the bows.....pretty simple!  I found this website while searching for some good tips.  She has some great tutorials!  Make Hair Bows and More

Just a little ribbon, some fun brads, some thread and some hot glue, and some alligator clips...and voila....cute hair bows.

For this cute bow I cut a paper doll and some clothes using some clear acrylic sheets and the Paper Doll Dress up cricut cartridge.  I painted with some acrylic paints and added a cute face stamp from Peachy Keen Stamp set  Everyday Character faces.  The hair is just some doll hair I picked up earlier this summer with this project in mind.



I hope you enjoy my project for today!  Please come back tomorrow for my last day as PKS guest designer.  I am so excited about tomorrows project!  (Hint: fire up your Gypsy if you have one ;) )
