Mickey Bows

We are hanging out with the mouse this week, "Mickey Mouse" that is. We totally surprised our kids with the trip, they had no idea we were going until we picked them up from school yesterday to go to the airport, so much fun. I however had so much to do to get ready which included making a few Mickey Mouse themed items which I will feature over the next week. First up "Mickey Bows" to find out the general directions visit this post from last week. The only thing I did different was to use a red button in the center which makes the corkscrew ribbon fan out a little more. I attached them to the barrette form the exact same way as in the directions. One great tip to get your "em-agination" flowing is to use a sticker inside of the button to achieve a specific theme. The button I used was a plain old cheap button but to give it a little more flair and a true "Mickey" theme, I put a Mickey sticker right in the center of the button and used a little modge podge to hold it in place. "Em-agine" the possibilities you could come up with, flowers, animals, cartoon characters, if you can find a sticker, you can make a what-ever themed bow.
