ADORABLE LITTLE PONYTAIL HOLDER

Sandy begins the project with the Mini Bowdabra bow making tool. She scrunches a pink ribbon (14” long and 2.5” wide) that is cut at an angle at the ends and tops it with a beautiful blue ribbon (14” long and 1.5” wide). She adds a red dotted dovetailed ribbon (9” long and 2.5” wide) and scrunches another similar ribbon 13” long making loops. Next, Sandy scrunches a dovetailed blue ribbon (8” long) over it and adds some cute little corker ribbons, topping it with a cute flower pick. She ties it all to finish the adorable little ponytail holder.

BEAUTIFUL MOTHER’S DAY WREATH BOW

Sandy uses a wreath with 6” diameter along with a golden scrunchy ribbon (Yard and 9” long). She applies a glue dot on the back of the wreath and wraps it with the golden scrunchy ribbon, completing the wrapping with another glue dot. Then, she scrunches a dovetailed decorative ribbon (7.5” long and 2.5” wide) in the Mini Bowdabra and tops it with a mesh ribbon (5” long and 5” wide). She adds rhinestone strips (4” long) over it and adds the same decorative ribbon she used earlier (7.5” long) along with some blue flower picks.
