Hair Bow Display: Tutorial

Hello Everyone! I have made a bunch of these cute clips and thought to myself "Where to put them?" So, one night while laying in bed... should have been sleeping... I came up with this idea!

I had this two pack of cheapo mounted canvas. I bought a cheapo bottle ($.89) of sky blue paint and Landen and I went to town! I used a bit more than what it would have taken to just cover them and added big circles/swirl texture.

We waited for that to dry and took a nap!

Then I got out a roll of cute polka dot ribbon (5/8 inch I think, paid $1.99) I layed out the ribbon and decided what lengths to cut for the stems. Then made the leaves and set aside. Next I dug out the good ole' hot glue gun. I glued down the stem bottoms first, then lined it up and added the leaves. To finish it off I put ribbon along the bottom and wrapped it around the bottom. then added the bows! The flowers are clips too! (I will be selling all kinds of clippies at the upcoming Crafty Mart!)
