  • Those are incredibly beautiful @Holly, do you have a store where you sell your creations, or give them as gifts to friends or just keep them to hang around the house and make a lovely atmosphere?

    They really look so professional, like something you would buy in a store, where do you get your ribbon?

  • Woot Holly! Very nice rounds there. I like all three! \:D/
  • @spygirl thank you!! I actually have my own website that I sell a lot of my handmade goods on and I plan on doing some craft shows this spring and summer as well. :) I’ve already made a couple as gifts and I am making one with house numbers on it currently (I won’t be able to share those pictures because they have personal information on the signs)

    I buy spools of ribbon from Michaels and Walmart (I’ve found they have the best selection in my area) and I hand make the bow myself with the ribbon! I get wired ribbon for my fluffy bows and use regular non wired for just a simple bow like what’s on my welcome sign!

    Good for you!  I hope you have lots of sales!  I used to sell things on etsy but haven't for the last several years, it would be nice to start that up again.  I remember Michaels always had a nice selection, where we are now only has a Hobby Lobby and not a lot of stock, same with walmart, but that just depends on your area I suppose.  I could spend hours just browsing each craft aisle and looking at all the neat stuff.  there was a custom frame part of the store too, and I always wanted  to get one.

    Leather working is a lot of fun as well, I have an entire collection of leather stamps with different shapes have you ever tried working with leather?

    Anway, the signs come out beautiful, you have a knack for tying bows, mine always come out a mess!   Did you watch videos for making them or just a natural talent?  Also are they actually tied or do you cut the pieces and then staple or glue them together?  Unless its a trade secret of course  ;;)

    Thank you for sharing your creations

    @spygirl I started out selling on Etsy back in 2017 and had success on there over the years so I decided to launch my own website very recently! We pretty much only have a Michaels and Walmart in my area in less I drive about an hour to go to Joanns or hobby lobby! I watch a ton of videos on how to make and tie bows which I link below! :)

  • How to make a bow! 

    The only thing I did different was I used a zip tie instead of pipe cleaner. 

    to make the simple little bow on my Welcome sign, I just folded the ribbon over to make 2 loops and then bunched it in the middle and zip tied it and then I cut a little piece of ribbon to go in the center to hide the zip tie. I glued my ribbons on the board with hot glue!

    Wow, thank you so much for the video @holly it was really informative!  honestly though, I think your bows came out better than even the person's in the video, they are really tidy and nice!

  • @Teapotprincess thank you!! :) I might be able to do a unicorn cup. I messed up and thought I grabbed pink glitter and it was actually purple color shift and I didn’t realize it until I started putting it on the cup :)) so I have a pretty purple cup but no clue what to put on it lol
