Coordinate outfits with matching hair bows. Use the Mini Bowdabra Hair Bow Tool & Ruler to make easy hair bows to match all of your daughter’s clothes.

Below is an extra bonus tutorial on lining snap clips, provided by our Bowdabra Design Team:

I wanted to make my daughter some special hair bows for school. I started by lining two snap clips with 3/8” grosgrain ribbon.

How to line snap clips:

1. First begin by hot gluing the 3/8? wide ribbon to the end of the snap clip. Place the ribbon onto the top of the snap clip and hot glue it in place.


2. Wrap the ribbon tightly around one side of the snap clip. Hot glue the ribbon onto the clip to hold it in place.


3. Next, wrap the ribbon around the point of the snap clip, got glue and pinch the ribbon together. Bring the ribbon around to the other side.


4. Wrap the other side of the snap clip tightly and hot glue the ribbon end. Make two matching snap clips.


5. Using the Hair Bow Tool and Ruler’s interactive CD follow the simple instructions to make a Quad Pinwheel Bow using 7/8? wide Grosgrain Ribbon and add a small Boutique Bow using the same 3/8? wide ribbon that you lined the snap clips with.


6. Make two matching bows using the Mini Bowdabra, Hair Bow Tool and Ruler, and Bowdabra Bow Wire.


Trim away extra Bowdabra Bow Wire, hot glue a finishing ribbon onto the bows, and then hot glue the bows onto the metal ends of the lined snap clips.


Make several bows using different colored ribbon to match your daughter’s outfits.


Use the Hair Bow Tool and Ruler interactive CD to make loads of different styled bows, even the hard to make baby bows. The interactive CD gives step-by-step instructions for hair bow making from start to finish. Learn how to attach bows to alligator clips, combs, hair elastics, headbands, and so much more. Follow the easy tutorials for finishing the bows with ribbon, finishing knots, beads, even buttons!

The Hair Bow Tool and Ruler easily fits over the Mini Bowdabra. Bowdabra Ribbons Crafts & Things Store sells the items individually or you can purchase the Hair Bow Creator Pack which comes with the Mini Bowdabra, Hair Bow Tool, & Ribbon.
