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

Easter Bunny Ribbon Sculpture Tutorial

This Easter Bunny is so cute – and a bit of a challenge! But nothing you can’t do, Ribbonistas :)

You’ll need 3/8 inch ribbon in the following lengths + supplies:

  • 7.5 inches (bunny)
  • 3.75 inches (belly)
  • 3.5 inches (belly)
  • 4 inch x four pieces (ears, 2 inner + 2 outer)
  • 5 inch (bow)
  • 7 in (covered alligator clip)
  • 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!

Whew – and we’re back online! Here at Ribbon and Bows Oh My, we switched to a new website layout and knocked our blog down in the process. New, responsive, beautiful, and easier to navigate, we’re in love with it! If you have not seen it, go check it out.

Along with the new website, we added some new goodies – RABOM Felt Bows! 21 new colors and enough material to make six adorable bows. You can mix-and-match the loops, double up loops or tails, and make tails-out or tails-down bows. What’s our favorite thing about these new bows? No sewing! They come together entirely with a glue gun. You can sew if you like, but you don’t have to!

Christmas Tree Ribbon Sculpture Hairclip Tutorial!

Hello all! Here it is – the Christmas Tree Ribbon Sculpture Hairclip Tutorial! < that’s a mouthful. Wow.

Is this your first Ribbon Sculpture Hairclip? Great! This is a great one for a beginner start! It’s pretty easy – just keep these words in mind while you work: Slow, Symmetrical, and Simple. Work slowly, since this will allow you to place your ribbon switchbacks more precisely. And always pay attention to symmetry! Are your branches even on each side? Are the loops of your topper bow of equal length? Just keep checking your symmetry. Finally – simple! This is a simple ribbon sculpture, only takes one or two attempts to get it right, so don’t overthink it :) Three diagonal rows of rhinestones is all you need! You can do more, but if you don’t want to take chances, just stick with the Three Diagonal Rows pattern!

We hope you enjoy this tutorial and we can’t wait to see the pics of YOUR Christmas Tree Ribbon Sculpture Hairclips!
