Mini Bow Tutorial


Step-by-Step Instructions:

 Prep-Time

1.  Using your fingernail file or sandpaper, file over your adjustable ring base a few quick times. This helps the adhere the bow to the ring base once the superglue is applied.

2. Next take one of your bows, on the back is the paper you usually peel off to stick to a package, you will want to neatly trim it to where the paper is more rounded on the back.  You can also cut the entire paper backing off and secure a felt circle to the back using your superglue for a more polished look, like you would do if you were making a hair bow using decorative flowers.

3. After you have filed the adjustable ring base and trimmed the paper from the back of the bow it is time to do the final step in making your ring!

4.  Using your superglue apply to base pad of the adjustable ring and add the back of the bow to the pad of the ring.  You might need to apply a little dab of superglue to the back of the bow as well.

Let dry and you have yourself a pretty cute bow ring!

  2. I bought mine from Wal-Mart, they sell them in the Christmas section during the fall months. Sometimes you can find them at a Dollar Tree all year round!
