Ribbon & Bakers Twine Baby Bows

I love just a simple bow on a brand new baby.
I can't imagine anything sweeter.

So the other night I sent my husband fishing with the kids, and I made bows for this baby that is coming any day now.


Have you heard of BAKERS TWINE?
  I am a fan of this stuff!

I found the Bakers Twine at a scrap booking store in Florence, Oregon...but I know they sell it at lots of places.
I got a yard in each color.

I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it!
I made several little bows in each color.

I can't wait to see what they look like on this baby!

I have been collecting ribbons for a while...

you just need about 6 or 7 inches to make a tiny bow.

They turn out so cute!

When I was little they used to stick on baby bows with honey...but now they say honey is not safe for babies.

Did you know that KY Jelly works great though!  I just bought a tiny little bottle of it at target.
You put a little dab on the back of the bow, stick it in place, and when it dries it stays wonderfully.

Here is a picture of Lucy 5 years ago, when she was brand new with one of the little bows I would  stick in her hair.

p.s. I have been having contractions all day so I think we might be getting really close :o)

Please keep us posted when that little one comes!

Yay! A baby hopefully soon! Love the bows. Also, corn syrup works great too!

Britta said...

I love simple bows. I've used glue dots that you use for scrapbooking...I found that it worked better than KY, corn Syrup, and the flour/water trick. Congrats!

I can't wait to see this new baby! I am so excited for you guys! Good luck these next few weeks. I hope she comes soon.

P.S. I've got a little one in the oven now too! YAY! The kids are so excited! It's a little strange having older kids and now preparing to have another baby. I hope I can go back to diapers and late nights again without any problems :/. It's been a nice break though and we are really excited to have another one. Love you tons! Hang in there mama!
