Default Boas at Hobby Lobby?

I think some of them are made of marabou? Can you buy those and cut them up? Will it shred everywhere. I have not worked with marabou before. It will probably be more then I want! LOL! I might have to split them with a friend.

I get the boas at HL when they are on 50% off and I make puffs out of them. Yes, they are very messy. I stick the boa in a zip lock bag and cut it inside the bag to reduce the mess but it still gets everywhere.

You can cut those boas from HL up but be prepared for a mess

I cut mine outside, that way most of the mess is out there, you still get some inside just from working with it but not as much as you do when you cut it. HTH.

I have never worked with this stuff before. Is it less messy if you buy it another way? I see all these cute bows with it. But now I beginning to wonder why people buy it if sheds so bad. Does it shed off the bows after made. I mean I know you gluing it down. But it still seems like there is a potential to shed. I hope I am making sense.

I havent had an issue with shedding after the hair bow is made.. the reason it sheds when you cut it is because you are cutting into the feathers and it just makes them fall everywhere.. when I buy puffs I don't have that problem

You know I went to Dollar General the other day just looking at Halloween decorations and they had marabou there for a dollar!! I was like are you kidding and they were darn cute! They had mixes of like pink and purple and all kinds so I'm gonna have to go back and get me some!! I buy my marabou at oriental trading I got 10 different colors each a yard for 5 something. I bought 2 packs and it was 11 something with shipping.
