Brighten up the drab winter blues with a bright welcome spring banner. You can easily create the welcome spring banner with some ribbon and cardstock paper. The banner would look gorgeous over a mantel or in a foyer. So let’s get started!
- Mini Bowdabra with hair bow tool and ruler attachment
- Bowdabra bow wire
- Assorted card stock
- Paper punches
- Hole punch
- Twine or hemp
- Wired ribbon
- Glue stick
- Pearl beads
Begin by cutting out circles and letters to use for your welcome spring banner. Next, glue the circles and the letters.
Then, to make the bows for each circle, place the hair bow tool and ruler on the Mini Bowdabra. Cut 18” Bowdabra bow wire, fold it in half and place in the Mini Bowdabra.
Place the end of the ribbon at the 4” mark and fold and twist the ribbon into the Bowdabra. Now, fold and press your first loop at the 1.5″ mark.
Next, Fold and press a matching loop on the other side. Scrunch down with the Mini Bowdabra Wand. Then, Thread the two Bowdabra Bow Wire ends through the loop. Pull the wire tight while the bow is still in the Bowdabra. Remove from the Bowdabra and ring the wire around the back and tie a knot.
To finish, thread a bead onto the remaining Bowdabra bow wire. Attach the bow to the letter on the banner. Follow the steps to make additional bows for each letter. Use the bow wire to tie the letter onto your twine or hemp.
