Our fun Korker Hair bows are attached to lined alligator clips. The ends are heat sealed to prevent fraying. These hair bows are made to last, using the finest ribbon and hardware available.

Flower Stack Hair Bows


I have had several requests for Red White and Black Hair Bows to match weddings this season. The flower stack is a darling combination of several types and colors of ribbon. So original and unique. I decided I needed 2 new color combinations in this very style. The Black and White which turned out darling! And the Red White and Black, I love hounds tooth ribbon I thought it the perfect addition to this hair bow, it is the second layer look real close, the red gives it that picture perfect final touch! So congratulations to all you beautiful brides! I hope you loved your little flower girls Flower Stacks!

Gracie's favorite Do

Oh the dilemma. What to do with hair. I have no talent for hair do-ing. This is why I do hair bows. To cover up my skills or lack thereof. The goose likes braids. I can't braid, french braid anyway. I am told I braid backwards, and all the people I love, who could teach me to french braid-braid forwards (or the real way) So they claim it would just be impossible. Poor Goose!
So here is what we do. I start with wet hair.

And go up the sides with those fantastic stretchy ponies that don't pull their hair out.


A few on one side, a couple up the other...





One piggie to hold them together



Then I blew her hair dry and sectioned it so I could use the triple barrel on it





a couple minutes later, because it is so nice and thin :(






Voila . Curling it this way makes it look like she has so much more hair than she really has--not to mention we are growing out the A-line. I loved it on her but she would like long hair now.



Add a hair bow and we were set! This is an example of the streamer hair bows from the shoppe. She loves this hair bow. It makes her feel like a princess. The Streamers are so fun and you can use them whether your princess has long or short hair. Just trim up the ends to the desired length, don't forget to seal up your ends. And you're set!

Doth my eyes deceive me??

I went to the "Spring Boutique" (I now say with a slight hmm. hmmm.) yesterday. We were all so happy about the weather. "It was supposed to snow" we all said. "I am so glad it didn't" we all said. So the kids jumped on the trampoline, my husband mowed and fertilized the lawn........ turned the sprinklers on. Well I woke up this morning after a refreshing slumber in my deceitfully warm home, to this. Now I was not shocked mind you. We had snow in June last year. It does not last long. The point is, it was JUNE. So here we are. I am going to run out and pick my Hyacinths and bring them in, I am sure they are as upset as I am.

Who is Hannah Montana Anyway????


I had to post this. My six year old little peanut loves her hair. She loves it. However, she does take after me and she has the most tender head. So tear after tear. I feel for her. I went through it. So I am extremely gentle. Really, I am. Well.....She is extremely.... emmm.....DRAMATIC.

I wanted to do this fabulous up do for Easter Sunday with the classic hair bow

I put her hair in the pink curlers at night, and it is so cute the next day. But she loves it straight and long. She likes to flip it from side to side etc.etc. So I say, "Meg, let me put in the large Velcro rollers to give it bounce-ish-ness. She was fine until she looked in the mirror. And then.






WOW. Have you been there?

Flower Girls and Polka Dots


I decided I could not wait for the professional pictures. My little sister took these and they turned out better than mine.



The task was very big trying to get 16 flower girls to look at the camera all at once---smiling all together was an entire different matter. However, they all looked adorable in their red and black polka dot dresses and Classic hair bows.

I love these dresses, I am trying to decide whether I should carry them or not. What do you think? The boleros were perfect. Watch for these in the shoppe. They will be available in ivory and white. For each of the girls I ordered the size up on the boleros, which worked out perfectly. We had so much fun dressing up the little ladies. They all felt like princesses. Luckily I have one more little sister to get married-----So we get to do it all again!

Perfect Size Hair Bows


Just in....


We have just added the Small hair bow sets to the ever growing list of products at Allthingsribbon. I know you will like these. I have been making them for years. They are the perfect size to be worn as a set. Each hair bow measures approx 3 to 3 1/2 inches across. And they are attached to a lined alligator clip. I think the price is right as well $5.95 for a set.

Flower and Pearl Clips

Here is what you will need

low temp glue gun

clips

velvet

scissors

cute flowers

glass pearls I got these at Hobby Lobby (I love Hobby Lobby)

Cover your clips with the velvet-I use velvet for the no slip grip. It stays put! Remove any of the extra flower parts- we will only be using the petals


I like to flatten the surface after I attach the flower, the pearls will sit nicely if you do not skip this step.


Almost done...


Normally I am opposed to glue showing, a little will poke through after you attach the beads, nothing terrible. As long as you don't get crazy. Add your pearls (quickly) and your done!





I think they turned out adorable. Wasn't that quick. This is the perfect time to be on the lookout for the spring branches at the local craft stores. You will certainly be able to find some cute ones. I like the pearls too! The possibilities are endless, a clip for every outfit. Super Fun. If you make them, let me know, I would love to see em!
I am working on the dress up tutorial....it is on its way! Stay tuned
