This one is easy, low on supplies, and cute every time. Quite possibly the best, quickest, prettiest, most customizable Ribbon Wall Art out there! Also, these moves are – you probably guessed it – also awesome for wrapping presents! We use this fast-wrapped decorative bow all the time for quick prezzies – make a bunch ahead and have quick bows on hand to glue down to any and all presents (how cute would they be on Mason Jars??). We love this easy, beautiful project!
AKA a Cheerbow! Make a quick and pretty one with a ziptie and some 3 inch grosgrain – so much easier than you’d think! To get really great ones? Just keep practicin’! You can fold and re-fold a Cheerbow for a long time until you get it just right and get your workflow down! We like this idea for cute Bachelorette Party Accessories you can do yourself (Just wait, those pics are gonna be so cute!)
This Mini Stacked Bow is fluffy and adorable like its bigger sister – the Stacked Bow – but a little more manageable for little ones! Combine your Boutique Bow + Surround-a-bow + Covered Alligator clip (or Foldover Elastic Headband!) skills and get this adorable baby bow.
You’ll need the following:
18 inches of 7/8 ribbon
18-22 inches of 3/8 ribbon (excess of Surround-a-Bow used for center!)
Gorgeous! And there’s not a balloon color story out there that cannot be matched to beautiful grosgrain and satin! So many gorgeous colors and possibilities! The House That Lars Built is so good for gorgeous crafts like these.
This shamrock-shaped layering-bow adds beautiful layers to your Boutique Bows and Twisted Boutique Bows! Use layers of 3/8ths ribbon to add color and beautiful details to your Boutique Bows and Stacked Bows. Super easy and SUPER customizable, we love this bow-upgrade! You’ll need about 25 inches of 3/8 ribbon for a 4inch bow. Pro Tip: keep your ribbon on-spool while you place your Surround-a-Bow to eliminate wasted ribbon!
Rhinestones make the fiercest bows! With Rabom Rhinestone Cheerstrips, the rhinestone patterns are ready-to-go and sized for 3 inch Grosgrain Cheerbows! Just iron-on and fold that next-level bow! Find so many more patterns and all your Cheerbow supplies at ribbonandbowsohmy.com
Place sticky side down over grosgrain 1/2 to 1 inch from your tail (leave plenty of room!)
Using Cotton setting, gently but firmly iron back of ribbon in 15 second increments
Flip over and iron front in 5 second increments
Place in freezer for 10 to 30 seconds
Gently peel away plastic
If you like, re-iron back of ribbon to smooth away any wrinkles and hang or drape grosgrain to allow any remaining wrinkles to fall out. Done!
