Recently, I received a Bow Genius™ from Offray®. With a Bow Genius™ you can make all sorts of bows, big and small. Of course, bows are normally made from fabric ribbon. Not mine! I love making my bows from Makin’s Clay®. Why? Well, they are easy and fun to make, they keep their shape, and I can decorate them.
I simply ran Makin’s Clay® through the Makin’s Professional® Ultimate Clay Machine from the largest setting down to the #7 setting to make a 36” ribbon. I impressed the strip with the Makin’s® Stripes Texture sheet to make the clay look more like ribbon and then trimmed the sides with scissors. I made the bow by following the directions for making a 4 Loops Tail Down Bow (found on YouTube), added crystals for decoration, and then a hair clip to the back to turn it into a cute hair bow.Check out my Treat Container project which can be found on the Makin’s Clay® blog for another example of what I used a clay bow for!
