Hi everyone! I just joined here, and have a question...I have not made any bows yet, but do make one of a kind footstools and hair accessories with flowers and beads. I have this great paper and thought about making it into a bow to put on a barrette. The bow is made with a button in the middle and beads in the center of the button. It is cute, but I have a couple of concerns. One...ripping, two...fading, three...smushing. Has anyone made hair accessories from paper? Does anyone have a product that will keep the paper stiff and intact that can be applied to it? I would love the help!
