Back to School with Bowdabra

Hi everyone, Steph  here to show you how to create a fun back to school collection using the Bowdabra.  The Bowdabra is a wonderful tool that allows you to create a wide variety of bows.

Back To School Bow Making Ideas

 

To break the ice on the first few days of school, send your child in with a personalized name tag.

How to:

Use the Bowdabra to create a 3 looped bow.  Start with the Bowdabra wire and create the bow with green ribbon (or your school colors).

Die cut or use a Circle Cutter to cut  2 circles from strong cardstock – use two different colors for some interest – try using the school colors.

Add your child’s name with stickers, die cut letters or letter stamps.

Use the Bowdabra wire to hang the name tag from the bow.

Metal Container for Back to School Supplies

To keep school supplies organized, I also decorated a metal container.

I adhered ribbon around the metal container using Scor-Tape.

Then I created a 3 looped bow and adhered to the center of the container.  Place all your school supplies in the container so you can keep them organized and you child will know where they are.

Thanks for stopping by today.
