Creating a Removable Hair Bow Embellishment

Hi everyone! Today I did a bit of playing around with material (treated with Terial Magic) and hair clips.

Stamping Bella - Michele Boyer

Terial Magic is a liquid fabric stabilizer that allows fabric to be treated pretty much like paper. You can see how I used it HERE to stamp on, color and die-cut fabric.

I used some pre-treated fabric (left from another project) and a Terial Arts snap clip to create a bow that can later be removed from the card and used as a barrette.  I think it coordinates perfectly with my colored Tiny Townie Garden Girl Sweat Pea from Stamping Bella.

Because my fabric was treated with Terial Magic, I was able to very easily die-cut bow pieces from Taylored ExpressionsMini Mix & Match Bows. I only ran the dies/fabric through my die-cutting machine one time. No frayed edges or uncut threads. No problem.

I used X-Press It Clear Gel Glue to assemble the bow.

I positioned the clip on the bow so that the clip was not seen from the front then used thread to hold the clip in place.

Copic markers – BG10, BG70, E00, E01, E11, E13, E31, E35, G20, G24, G40, G43, G46, R01, W00, W1, W2, Y21, V20, V22, V25, V28; Copic Opaque White (dots on shirt)

I used foam tape to pop up the colored panel so that when the bow is in place, the panel lies flat. The sentiment, from Stamping Bella’s Mail Chick, is also popped up on foam tape.

I think the card is still cute once the barrette has been removed. :)

Thanks so much for visiting today.
