Default Please give me ideas!

My daughter's ballet school is having a fund raiser with silent auction and they are looking for items. I want to make some fabulous set like bows/headband matching clippies, but I have no idea what to make. Good grief! Someone please give me some direction! My ADD is kicking in!

Since it is the ballet school having the fund raiser, it would be nice to make a ballenria clippie or bow. Have you thought about doing a bow bouquet?

How about some stacked classic bows with the interchangeable clippies?


Maybe a white or pink bow - matches anything, then like 6 clippies that are really different from each other.

If it is a ballet school, then you have to have the obvious...

Can you duplicate by sight or do you need help?

That's exactly what I would say as well. I made wands on the weekend and they are super easy.

Thank you. I started trying to type instructions, but they sound pretty cryptic and I feel bad giving non-clear instructions. I would be happy to post some, but I have about 30 more cheer bows for some pshchotic cheerleaders to do tonight. Rob is out of town for a while, and I don't do well with the single mom scenario.




they are all glued, no sewing.

I promise I will try to get better instructions. these are nothing like my books I swear!

but if you can follow this-


heat seal all ends before working with them

1. I think I started with at least 6 inches of 7/8. Go for 8 in, then I know you've got enough. *lol*

2. accordian glue one side of a 7/8 " piece of ribbon 4-5 times (in the center) until the entire piece of ribbon is bent 90 degrees.

3. take a short (1.5" ?) piece of 5/8 and with only a dot of glue on the accordian, glue the small strip somewhat parallel to one of the sides of the accordian-ed piece.

4. Fold the perpendicular side of the accordian piece around the short strip, glue and cut off overhang in the back - this should make the toe. With glue (folding back the ribbon) or gentle lighter technique, soften the curve on the top of the shoe by the toe, to give it a more round appearance.

5. Fold the bottom edge of the 7/8" piece around to the back of the 5/8 short piece and glue to the back. This should "open" up the shoe a bit.

6. Carefully glue in the satin shoe ties. Give yourself a good 12" on each side of the shoe to allow for the bow and knots.

7. Somewhere in there you need to secure the back of the shoe as well.

8. Attach to the FLAT side of an alligator clip - or bow center, lapel pin etc.

9. of you want the strings to really stand up on their own, double it over and hot glue ribbon together - the double layer and hotglue will stiffen it enough to hold up on its own!

I hope this is not too unintelligible. I apologize for the briefness of it! But I hope it helps!

Oh my, those are so pretty! Thanks for sharing them. I have to try making them. The only ribbon sculptures I have tried so far are the fishes and I figured out a rose.

Thanks for all the ideas ladies! So I am thinking the tutu bow holder or the bouquet of bows. The bow holders I made for the craft show came out so cute I could make an extra special one for the auction. What ever I do I have to get started soon because I have to turn it in by the 19th!

I just did an auction like thing at my niece's school for their spring carnival. I did 4 themed baskets, with 3-4 bows in each. I had a sports theme, girly/Easter theme, camo theme and a misc theme. I definately agree that one or more items should have something to do with ballet/dance. I did school colors (red w/ black paw prints) in the sports one since it was for a school. Just a few ideas. This was the first thing I have done like this. Don't forget to attach a business card/flyer in some creative way so they can look you up in the future.
