Try Something Tuesday!

Before I dig into my post, I just want to remind you to be sure to enter the Just for Mom Giveaway we are co-hosting. Some fabulous prizes and plenty of time to get your entries in, since it goes through August 13th. Don't miss out! 

Welcome to Try Something Tuesday! The Tuesday where we encourage you to try something new. We don't want to just talk the talk, so I tried something I've never done before... I made some Mini Bow Clips following the tutorial that we (ok... Jane) posted in March (see below).

The Original Tutorial

It was super easy to follow the tutorial instructions and I would highly recommend that you make several at a time. You have to get your supplies out for one, you might as well make a bunch. Plus, they are SO cute and I did try a "variation" and did thicker wire ribbon (pink polka dot) and it turned out so cute, so you can easily experiment with other ribbons and thicknesses to make them one-of-a-kind.

The results (ta-dah):

I made four color sets with two clips in each set (so I can do pig tails or braids and have a clip for each, plus knowing my daughter, it is a real possibility that we could lose one). Then I did a variation bow clip using thicker wire ribbon. I still covered the hairclip in pink grosgrain ribbon, but the rest was done in the wire ribbon. I also had the idea to alternate two colors within the same clip, but I didn't get to experiment as much as I would have liked to. I do LOVE the way they turned out and the possibilities are endless. So, make sure to re-visit the original tutorial and let it inspire your Tuesday and try something new!
