Hi Friends! Today I have a hairbow that you can make in 10 minutes using supplies from our sponsor Offray.
In today’s Video I will show you how to make this triple-looped bow. It’s easy!
3/8″ Dippy Dot Red/White Grosgrain ribbon
2 1/4″ wide double faced satin ribbon (blue)
1/2″ Maggie 341 Sapphire ribbon (metallic chevron design)
Spring clip barrette
Star shaped rhinestone
Bow making tool or strong clothespins/binder clips clipped to a box
1. Place pegs 4″ apart in a bow making tool.
2. Unravel several feet of each ribbon.
3. Lay the smaller ribbons over the larger one and carefully wrap around the bow maker 3 complete times making sure to keep the smaller ribbons facing out. Do not twist the ribbon.
4. Clip the ribbon and twist the ends together, then wrap one end around the ribbon bunch and ties securely in a double knot.
5. Slide the bow off the bow maker and “fluff” the ribbon loops.
6. Trim the ends and secure with glue then glue the barrette over the knot in the back.
7. Embellish with a rhinestone if desired.
You can make these up by the dozen this 4th of July using the super size ribbon rolls from Offray! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

Hi friends! I want to wish all of my american readers a happy 4th of July!
And I am going to show you how to make this card:
The motorcycle stamp is from Local King Rubber Stamps. The “Happy birthday” is SU! (retired) and the Frame is Inque Boutique (retired) the stencils and dauber bottlers were from Oriental Trading Company. It was rough going, there were a couple of times during this tutorial that I thought I might have to toss it and start again but I persevered and I liked the outcome. The best part of have a project go downhill is that there is no where to go but up! You should keep at it because you can’t make it any worse, you have nothing to lose…Didn’t Janis Joplin say something like that? Are you curious how it went? Watch the video:
It is raining n Maine right now so no fireworks tonight. We are going to have a family movie night instead, we are going to watch The Parent Trap! In fact, I better go make popcorn! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

Howdy folks! Are you gearing up for summer Bar-B-Ques? Getting ready for the 4th of July Festivities? Or planning to get together with friends and watch the fireworks? Well why not whip up a few of these cute favor boxes. You can fill them with mints, candy or small trinkets. You get 4 boxes from 1 sheet of cardstock, I printed the star and stripe pattern papers that are included in the USA Party Mega Kit from Lindsay’s stamp Stuff to make these patriotic favors.
Each box takes a minute to make, watch the video to see how quick easy they are!
These favors can be adapted to whatever event you choose, I made similar ones for my sister’s wedding using cardstock of her wedding colors and I used a monogram to decorate it, it was very elegant (and she had no idea how easy they were!) Here is the USA Party Mega kit I used from Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff:
This is a great go-to favor and I do hope you try making these for your upcoming 4th of July festivities.
Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

Well I did it, this year I actually got photos of the fireworks and they came out great! Here is a scrapbook page I made with the shots.
I used the free version of ShapeCollage software to make my firework collage, isn’t it nifty! I love this software! I used the large photo of my kids waiting to go to the fireworks to cover up the shapecollage watermark
**Important: If you use the free version of shapecollage do not upgrade to the new version because a watermark will be placed over the center of the collage and it is big so the photos will be unusable and there is no way to get the old version back unless you are lucky enough to have it on another computer as I did.***
Here is a close up of the firework shots:
And the glittered die cut, I used the font Madfont and cut it out with SCAL software on the cricut. The glitter is Diamond Dust brand.
This page qualifies for the Gingersnap creations “paint” challenge and For Fun (summer memory).
I painted the background with watercolor and masking fluid, this video shows how:
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend! Happy crafting!
