Mother’s Day Bookmark

April 23, 2012
Every child wants to give her mom something for to make her feel loved on Mother’s Day. Today’s project is a simple and inexpensive craft for a child to make for her mom or grandmother for Mother’s Day. It is a great gift on it’s own, but can be added with a special book Mom would enjoy on her special day.

 

Supplies:

 

Instructions:
1. Cut a piece of Bowdabra wire approx. 12 inches long, then thread it through a large paper clip.

3. Cut a piece of red ribbon and dovetail the ends. Fold it in half to find the center. Place the center into the Mini Bowdabra. One end will be directly over the paper clip.

8. Leave the bow in the Mini Bowdabra for now. Gently pick up the ends of the Bowdabra bow wire and secure the bow with a double knot. Trim excess wire. Fluff the tulle to hide the knot.
