During the past few years, I have been collecting hair bows, and almost every day I like to dress up the way I look with a different bow.

I currently have 43 different colored and sized bows. A little while ago, I decided to make my own bow. I did a little research to learn how, and I found out it is pretty easy to do.

I went to a local craft store, A.C. Moore. I bought 1½-inch-wide ribbon, and a 3/8-inch-wide ribbon. Additionally, I needed a hot glue gun, with hot glue, and alligator clips. You can come up with your own designs or look them up online.
