Oh, how I LOVE this bow!
I love it for many different reasons.
First, I love it because it uses the Pinwheel technique. I haven’t done this technique much, but it is just fun and really easy to do! Especially with the bow maker!
Second, I love it because of the cute little heart in the middle. I don’t know if this bow could be any cuter because of that heart.
Third, I love the Doodlehearts White/Red Valentine’s Day Ribbon.
Then I used the Doodlehearts White/Red Valentine’s Day Ribbon in 1 1/2″ to make a bow using the Pinwheel technique as well. I made this bow on half a setting lower for the bow maker than the first Pinwheel bow.
Then I combined the two bows, putting the tails in opposite directions. I combined them using a needle and thread and tightening it.
I made a cute little heart out of Red Solid Grosgrain Ribbon in 3/8″.
To make it I folded it in half, hot glued the center together, then brought down the ends of the ribbon and shaped a heart. Then I hot glued the bottom together and cut with scissors where I wanted. After that, I sealed the ends with my lighter.
I covered the center of my Pinwheel bow with White Solid Grosgrain Ribbon in 1/4″ to hide the threads. Then I hot glued the heart on the center of the bow. I used very little glue on the edges of the heart and then put it on the bow. It is not an extremely strong hold, but it will be strong enough until Valentine’s Day! 🙂
