When I went to SNAP earlier this month, one of the things I picked up was this cute little frame from Cut It Out Frames. I've long been a fan of their beautiful frames and knew just what I wanted to do with it.
My daughter just turned ten, and now suddenly she is questioning all the "little girl" things she has always loved. She doesn't want to play with toys (except Barbies and her dolls), and she doesn't want me to do her hair anymore (I've been giving her cute hairstyles since she was two!)
So she doesn't wear bows that often, but she still likes a pretty braid or ponytail once in awhile. I decided to make her a bow holder that represents her more grown-up style.
I started out with a blank frame (this style is called Newport). Then I painted the edges with a gold glitter paint.
Then I traced the shape of the frame onto the back of this gorgeous gold foil paper that I picked up from the Blitsy booth at Snap. I used a tape runner to adhere the tape to the frame- but you could also use Mod Podge or even a glue stick.
The final step was to add ribbon. I've found grosgrain ribbon works the best to hold the bows in place. I cut two 24 inch strips and hot glued them to the back of the frame.
