Bow Hair Clip Holder/Organizer and Flower Clips

I had to come up with a gift for a girls birthday party with one day notice.  Normally I would run to Fred Meyer, but the kids have been having a rough week and I didn't want to drag them out.  So I used what I had on hand and came up with a gift that hopefully was fun for her.  I used a spare frame I had, and mod podged it with some bright pink fabric.  Then I covered the glass with some coordinating knit fabric and hot glued the ribbons to the front.  I used this tutorial from Make It and Love It.

Then I made a couple of flower clips using the same coordinating fabrics and little pink beads.  I used this tutorial as my guide, although I hit some snags when it came time to attach the clips to the flowers.  There are NO good tutorials out there that explain how to do this without using hot glue.  I have some hot glue gunned clips and they just never hold up over time.  So I wanted to sew them onto the flowers and I had to just wing it.  I eventually got it to work, yeah!

The pictures I took are all terrible, my apologies once again! :)

I did enjoy making the little clips so I think I'll add making some for Addison to my ridiculous to do project list.  Linking up with SEW AND TELL over at Amy Lou Who this week.  Yeah!

What a cute idea! Little girls would just love those. (Heck I'd wear one too if I thought I could get away with it. ;-) )
