Default My 'Labeled' Bow



I used:


You can buy this at Walmart for almost $6. So i print out 'Bella Posh' on the special paper. I make sure that i have them written in Word repeatedly so you don't waste paper. Don't forget to have them printed on Mirror scale or it's going to appear the other way round when you print and press. And then cut them into size of 3/8 ribbon before ironing it.

Next: Take the 3/8 ribbon that you want to line on the clip, iron the paper together with the ribbon slowly.. and you get your own bow labeled behind the clip..
Sounds good?

Nicely done! And thanks for the pointers. It's always nice to have SOME idea of what you are doing before you dive in head first.

we have had to wash the bald baby's white headband bow...she has this tendency to pull it off while she has food in her hands!

These can go through the wash. I've used them on custom tshirts I made for a kids party before.

The paper commonly seen in stores is for Inkjet only! If you have a laser printer, you'll have to search a bit to find the right paper. Just make sure you check before you buy.

I've always partially lined my clips b/c the local boutiques don't line them (only a small strip on the top) and I wanted them to be similar but I may have to change if I want to use this technique.

I really like that!! It seems much better than the other labels we once talked about, and that is soooooo much cheaper!! Love it!
