Framed Hairbow Holders

Back for my sister’s baby shower, I made her a more awesome hairbow holder than I had made for myself. (See them both here.)

That was unacceptable.

So, as soon as Joann’s had the appropriate sale, I ran out and bought frames to make my own for my own girls.

And then the frames just sat in my closet.  For months.  Because I had went out and bought all the supplies.  Wasn’t that enough???!?  (Does that ever happen to you?  You are so excited about a project that you go out and buy everything you need to make it, and then once you have all the supplies at home your enthusiasm just fizzles??)

I *finally* fished out those frames from my crafting closet and completed my project – YAY!

OH, and I also put them up with a few of the pictures taken by Brandy Leigh Photography back in May— so happy to have some of the pictures up on my wall!

The hairbow frames are 10×13 openings, and the pictures are 8×10 openings.  I didn’t realize I would fill up the hairbow holder frames completely –oops!  I guess I don’t need to add to our collection!

By the way, brief directions for the hairbow frames are in the previous post about the one I made for my sister.  Just one clarification:  to be sure the glass – now wrapped in fabric and batting – fits back into the frame, DO NOT wrap the batting around the edges.  It will make it too thick!  Cut the batting the same size as the glass and use the fabric to hold it in place.  The fabric is thin enough it shouldn’t cause problems with popping the glass back in — at least, it caused no problems for me).

OH, and because my falling-apart French Memo board that I previously made to hold the hairbows was completely defunct, I took it down to its original corkboard.   It was a regular brown corkboard with a wood frame, and had writing all over it.  So I painted it bright pink with a white frame and gave Elena a picture board for her room.

She is in LOVE and keeps asking me for more pictures.

This was completed as part of my personal challenge – YAY! I finished it on time!
