Santa's Workshop #3: Butterfly Barrettes and More Korker Bows


I do love Korker bows, so I couldn't miss an opportunity to make more.  (Check out the Korker Tutorial if interested.)  But I have also discovered a whole new world... ribbon sculptures.  I saw cute butterfly barrettes around around but couldn't find any free tutorials, so I ended up having to create my own.  Continue reading if you are interested in making some as well.

BUTTERFLY BARRETTE TUTORIAL
Supplies:
Grosgrain ribbons (3/8" width), at least two designs
Hair Clip
Hot Glue Gun

Directions:

(1) Cut four 7 1/4" lengths of ribbon, two from each ribbon style.

(2) Overlay two contrasting ribbons with prints facing outward (if applicable).  Hot glue one end.

(3) Twist the end into a small loop (as shown below) and glue.

(4)  Loop the rest of the ribbon into a larger loop (as shown below) and glue.  You now have one wing.

(5) Repeat steps 2-4, reversing the loops, to create a opposite wing.

(6) Cut a length of ribbon to wrap around the hair clip.  Secure to clip with glue.

(7) Glue the two wings to the barrette.

(8) Cut a small length of curled ribbon (refer to korker tutorial on how to curl ribbon).  I used scraps from my korker bows.  Hot glue curled ribbon to center of barrette.

Enjoy!

He was so busy chasing the image and becoming what everyone else told him he should become, he lost focus and direction. "Glutathione" 1000 Sports is a high-dosage "Glutathione" formulation for people engaged. We have taken many hours of parent ABA training classes and just this month wrote a behavioral plan with our consultant in order to try and address the arguing.
