My god daughter was turning one, and she is just starting to be able to wear hair bows. So of course, I wanted to make some, but I didn't want to just do that. So I got thinking, how could I give her something to hold them... I've seen the bow holders, made out of picture frames before ( a good example would be here) but i never find any great frames that big so... That idea was out. But I did have a simple frame that I could jazz up too.. So here is what I came up with...
I used a 5 x 7 wooden frame that was flat. I spray painted it gold, and then glued pretty pink scrapbook paper on the flat part of the frame. Using and Exacto knife I cut out the center after it was glued down. I then sanded the edges with an emery board to clean up them up.
Next I added the ribbon, buttons and flower to the front for decoration, and cut the paper to go inside the frame.
I cut three ribbons for the back of the frame and glued them on too. And can you believe what I am about to say....Done! It's that Easy!
What I really like is that it can use this as a dry erase board too, maybe for notes about missing bows?
