Default No more flops with falling bows!!! ...hope so

Well ladies I think finally I`ve found something that can make us sleep reasured that those bows won`t fall off.
Mine have never falled till now but every day I pray that they won`t....I gave MIL and SSIL flops with bows for mother`s day and then I read here someones bow`s had come off..nothing worst than been in your MIL`s mouth...RoFLOL mine is a sunshine but you never now...
So I used two of those plastic straps used to secure wires and cables.
I bought them at the hardware store don`t know how they are called but they sure give those bows a tight grip.......I pulled as hard as I could and the bow doesn`t even move...so now I guess the dog might eat the bow but whats left will be still attached to the flop. LOL check the pictures so you can see what it is.
Off course after you secure them you have to hide those under the bow center you decide to use ahhh and I melted the whole thing with the wood burner after it was tight enough

Wow what a great idea. Thanks for sharing.

uline carries them. They have all sizes including some 3 inch ones that I think would be perfect. I almost bought some but I don't need 1000 right now.

That is a great idea! My friend gave me the same idea last week (she has a zip tie gun that her husband bought her that she still laughs about). She said I could take it and try it but I haven't done that yet!!! If there is a will, there is a way...lol!

Yes, I haven't been online much lately Been trying to get the kids done w/ school stuff, then trying to get our old camper ready to go camping which entailed cleaning from top to bottom and hubby had to do a bunch of re-wiring. I did get a bunch of bows & bow boards made--one bow/bowboard set for my SIL (who sadly I don't think even USES the bows that I busted my tail to make for her baby!!), one bow/bowboard set for my good friend who just had her first baby, a girl obviously, and I only had 2 days to make 15 different bows/clips/flowers, PLUS the board; and now I am finally getting around to finishing my own dd's board for her room; I wanted to have it done by the time her bday rolls around, which is june 4th. All while trying to keep up with 4 kids ages 8 & under So I have been busy, just haven't been able to get online too much on here But I hope to change that.....

Keep posting more fun stuff!! You are doing some great & fun things!! I love to see how talented everyone is, and you are definitely one of them!

Alyssa
