Hair Clip Organizer
Day 4 of May Arts / Petaloo Blog week!
Hair Clip Organizer
Can a girl get any luckier? May Arts ribbon combined with all kinds of gorgeous Petaloo embellishments- a match made in heaven for this girl!
I’ve got a few projects to show you- we’ll start with this ribbon hair clip organizer!
I thought it would be fun to show off some of the pretty hair clips my daughter has, and combining ribbon & flowers did the trick!
I started with a D-ring and something called a ‘woodruff key’. Now when you go to the hardware store looking for the D-ring & the hardware guy scratches his head & says you can probably only get that online- don’t believe him. *wink* The ‘woodruff key’ I got to weight down the bottom a bit- I’d probably go with a rectangular shape next time.
Here’s my pretty supplies.
Originally I was going to loop the ribbon over the D-ring & use fabri-tac (beacon adhesive), but didn’t like how much of the gold ring that showed. The answer? More ribbon of course! I wrapped the 5/8” satin/grosgrain band ribbon around the D-ring & used the fabri-tac to secure the end.
Now back to wrapping the 1.5” ribbon around the much prettier D-ring!
Next I wrapped the bottom of the ribbon around the ‘weight’ & sealed up the edges with fabri-tac
Here it is hung on the wall
I added some Petaloo glitter critters for a fun addition!
Next up- a REALLY fun gift using the Petaloo Daisy & Dahlia box blends! Start with the hairclips (you can find these at beauty supply stores) and May Arts 3/8” grosgrain. You can see how to wrap the ribbon here.
Add flowers! (you really get a ton in these boxes!)
Stack your flowers in combos that you love & attach them to your ribbon covered clips!
I’ve created several pretty clips & used the photo box the Daisy box blends come in for packaging.
A perfect gift!
Next up a pretty card using the Petaloo petite roses and May Arts ½” solid/wrinkled ribbon!
I stamped a little card (all stamp/cardstock PTI) & added lots of the mini roses, even to the center of the bow!
I love this so much I may have to frame it!
You can see why this was such a fun swap! And that’s just the tip of the iceberg for Petaloo! Head over to their website to see the amazing variety they offer!
Thank you so much to Petaloo! And thank you for your time! I hope you’ve been inspired to play with ribbon & flowers!!!
