My daughter has a birthday party to go to for the 1 year old niece of her boyfriend and she asked me to make up a gift for the little girl. Since I am into bottlecaps right now, I thought to make something for her that incorporated the caps. Well, necklace is out - too young. Bookmark - well, she's not into reading alone yet and bookmarking pages. So the next best thing... hairbows! Hairbows with bottlecaps. Woo-hoo! But I couldn't use the regular bottlecaps because they may be sharp for her if she reaches up on her head, so I used the flattened bottlecaps and I think they look adorable!!!
Of course, I created the image on the caps (so much fun), created the bows, and put them all together. The pink ribbon was really ugly by itself so I added a sheer ribbon on top and I think it made it look more classy. The purple ribbon was also ugly by itself so I added some lace to the edges to give it more "umpfff".
I'm really liking the pink one. The purple I'm not sure how I feel because it's kinda cute but kinda big. I don't know. What do you think?
