No-Tails Boutique Bow Tutorial

No tails and no secrets! Except for one – this Boutique Bow method requires you to think in straight lines and RIGHT angles. So make sure your parallel overlaps are truly parallel and your perpendicular placements are truly perpendicular! Or… you know, eye-ball it. Either way, once you get a clip on there or place it on a headband, it’s going to look adorable! This is a great way to mix in different colors or prints to your bow, too. So Holiday / Seasonal Bow Fans, this one is for you!

You’ll need the following materials:

  • 15 to 16 inches of 1.5 inch grosgrain
  • 4+ inches of 3/8 inch grosgrain for knot
  • 2 alligator clips
  • 2 straight pins
  • needle + thread
  • glue gun
  • scissors

  • 3.75 inches (belly)
  • 3.5 inches (belly)
  • 4 inch x four pieces (ears, 2 inner + 2 outer)

  • jewels (2)
  • needle + thread, glue gun, scissors, alligator clip, and end-sealer (a lighter or liquid end sealer)

Shamrock Ribbon Sculpture Tutorial

Shamrock Ribbon Sculpture TutorialHello all! Just in the nick of time for St. Patrick’s Day, it’s the cutest Shamrock Ribbon Sculpture DIY! Or Clover Ribbon Sculpture DIY! I say both :)

You’ll need the following: 

    • 3/8 inch Apple grosgrain, 2.75 – 3 inches in length (6 pieces)
    • 3/8 inch Apple Grosgrain, 2.5 inches
    • 3/8 inch Apple Grosgrain, 7 inches
    • Hot Pink 3/8 Saddle Stitch, 6 inches
    • Hot Pink 3/8 Saddle Stitch, 1 inch
    • ** CAREFULLY seal all ends before starting your Ribbon Sculpture
    • alligator clip, either single or double prong
    • Glue gun, lighter, scissors, ruler, needle and thread

Technique:
- Do not press or pinch heavily the glued pieces of grosgrain together – that will cause your ribbon to warp. When gluing pieces together, use light pressure to help set the glue, be more gentle than forceful and you will have grosgrain that “rests” rather than “pulls” at the glue points.
- Symmetry and right angles are how you get a good-looking finished sculpture. Make sure your ends are straight, not angled, and your pieces are all the same length. Ribbon Sculptures are very small, so small mistakes show up more than they would on a large, fluffy bow or Funky, Loopy bow!
