I purchased a plain, black, 8x10 frame at Wal-Mart with a 5x7 mat. I printed the 'H' from my computer (can't remember the font, but it was a simple one on there and came with the polka dots already!) at size 450. Used 2 inch black with white polka dots grosgrain ribbon and hot glued to the mat. Used 1/4 inch red with white polka dots to frame the corners. Easy enough!
Now for the bow........now, I'm no bow maker. Never made a cute bow a day in my life! UNTIL LAST NIGHT!!!! I am a (self proclaimed) Google Queen! My family makes fun of me when we don't know something, they'll say, "Mom will Google it!". So I "Googled" and found a website www.girlythingsbows.com!!! What a great site! With their simple directions and great pictures (I'm a visual kinda gal!) I made a bow I'm still in awe of. They even show you how to layer them and create different types!! I'm a little impressed, can ya tell?
OK...I'm not looking for compliments, but comments on how I can do better next time! Also, any suggestions on what type of glue I should use to glue the bow to the frame?
