I wanted to create some a patrotic bow for my granddaughter to wear with Memorial Day and it's great for all the celebration days we hold dear in America. Of course you can translate this to any day or any country.
These are easy to whip up at a moments notice to make sure all the girls in the family are ready to show their patriotic spirit for Memorial Day.
Cut a 12-inch strip of your favorite patriotic paper colors. The width is determined by the size you want the bow to be.
Adhere a small piece of the Glue Dots® Adhesives Continuous Line on the end of your accordion folds and adhere the ends together. Set aside.
Ink the edges of the paper with Tim Holtz's Distress Ink, Vintage Photo.
Use Glue Dots® Adhesives Craft dot to adhere the bow to the clip.
Show your pride!
Patriotic Hair Bows—French Clip
Starting on the front, right side of the cardboard start the wrapping of your ribbon by using an alligator clip to secure the ribbon. Moving to the left wrap the ribbon all away around the back to where you started and then go around one more time stopping a little over half pass where you began. Add another alligator clip to the left to hold it secure.
Bring the hanging part of the ribbon around the clip. Adhere the ribbon to the clip and to each other using Glue Dots® Adhesives Continuous Line.
Turn your French Clip over and remove the bar.
If you want to use an Alligator Clip instead of the French Clip just leave out the instructions that say, “Remove the bar” and do the same.
This Grandma is going to be making bows of all shapes, sizes, and for special occasion for her beautiful granddaughter.
How ever you celebrate Memorial Day in the states or around the globe remember to show your support for you military this year.
