Are you looking for a card and gift for a little girl all in one? Look no further you can make a cute little card that you attach a flower hair clip on the front. Since the ribbon we use resembles a fence it looks like flowers are lining along the fence. So cute! Watch and follow along as Sandy Sandler the creator of the Bowdabra shows you how to make your own flower hair clip and card in this easy how-to video!
So lets get started!
- Mini Bowdabra
- 3 pc Bowdabra Bow Wire (18″ each)
- Wide Green Ribbon (1 1/2″ x 9″)
- Wide Burlap Ribbon (2 1/2″ x 9″)
- (3/8″ x 2″) Green ribbon 3 pieces
- 3 pc Thin Green Ribbon (3/8″ x 4 1/2″)
- Three pc Thin Green Ribbon (3/8″ x 3 1/2″)
- 3 pc Sheer Ribbon (1/2″ x 18″)
- 3 Alligator Hair Clips
- 2 pc White Card Stock
- Hot Glue
“For this really cute little card, what we did was glue a piece of grosgrain along the bottom of the card. And then I found this really cool burlap that sort of looks like a fence, so I glued this on as well. We glued a little bit on the back. Next we covered it with card stock so that you don’t see the ends on the inside of the card.
Now what I’m going to do is just put the card to the side for a second. I take my Mini Bowdabra, and I’m going to make some flower hair clips. So, I’m folding my bow wire in half and laying it down into my Mini Bowdabra. I’m just going to bring the ends around to the back and kind of tuck them under.
Then what I’m going to do is take my organza, or sheer ribbon, and I’m just going to put a little piece in. I’m only putting a little bit on the end, and you’ll see why in a minute. So, I’m going to make all my loops. On one side I’m just going to make a little, tiny loop. You’re not even going to see these when we’re finished. So, this is the top of the flower on this side. Again, I’m just going to make a little, tiny loop and fold this, and this one I think I’m going to twist it. I Fold it back and twist it and then fold it back over here. So we have a really cute flower forming.
Continue making the flower hair clip
I think this makes absolutely adorable little card/gift for a little girl. Then what I’m going to do is take my green grosgrain, and I’m just going to make a little loop on this side and twist that in. I make a small loop there. And just finish this off so it kind of looks like there’s a little green around the bottom of the flower. And I’ll scrunch that into my Mini Bowdabra.
Now I’m going to just pull the wire through the slipknot, pull it really, really tight, separate the ends, bring it around to the back. And I want to make sure that I double-knot this really, really tightly, and do one more knot. I do this because I’m going to end up cutting the ends on the other side to make it so it will glue really easily onto the hair clip. So, we’re going to cut the Bowdabra Bow Wire. I’m also going to clip all of these ends, so when I do glue it onto my hair clip they’re not going to be too bulky.
So now, what I’ve done is I’ve already taken my grosgrain and I just glued it on the top and the inside of my hair clip. Then what I’m going to do is just place this piece here. I fold it in half and find the center. And I’m just going to lie this in the center of my hair clip and I’ll leave that for a minute.
Finishing your flower hair clip
Then I’m going to take my glue gun and I’m going to put a little bit of glue right on the back of my flower. Then I’m going to just lie that at the top of my clip and glue that on. I want to cover up my wire and finish my flower off so, I’m going to just pull this down here, put a little bit of glue here. I just bring this side up here, because I need it to cover the wire. And as I bring this side up, that’s also going to cover. I think I need to just clip this a little bit shorter. So now, you have this cute little flower hair clip.
Now just to make things easier, I’ve made another card. So what we’ve done here is we clip the flower through the fence. And now you have a really cute card and gift all in one.
