Pigtail Bows

I am so sad that this ribbon is retired because it is super cute! I thought this ribbon would be so cute in a little girl's hair. So I made these bows for a little girl who just turned 1, about a month ago. I hope she enjoys them. Supplies:
Accessories: Pigtails Ribbon Originals (retired), wire, hot glue, hair clips, foam

And Finally the Cover!

This was probably the most fun I have had while doing this Wedding Album. That is probably because I was trying something new. I was actually pretty scared to do stenciling on the linen album, just because if I messed up then it would be on there forever or I would have to purchase a whole new album. For all the stenciling I used the Kind Thoughts Brocade decor stencil. Yes the long border is also the Kind Thoughts Brocade decor stencil. I used just the center part of the stencil. Hint: Use masking tape to create long continuous boundaries to create a long border.
I added some ribbon and linen twine to accent the border. I also made a tag to match.
Hint: The pretties kit offers many great accents to make your tags, cards, scrap book pages, and projects elegant.
