It's gloomy out today, and we're starting to get low on clips, so I decided to get crafty and up our inventory!
I had everything on hand so I did not spend any money (YAY for me)! However, you will need some basic accessories such as ribbon, hot glue, hair clips, etc. Making clips is super easy - basically you measure your ribbon, hot glue it to the top portion of the clip, and hot glue your accessories on in a manner where they will stay secured. If you google "how to make hair clips", you will find tons of helpful resources, u-tube videos, and blogs. I also learned how to make ribbons, and plan on researching how to make roses out of tulle at some point in the future!
After making these 7 clips for my little darlins', I decided that I needed something to put them in. One grows weary of finding hair clips all over medicine cabinets throughout the house, LOL. Thankfully, I keep old cans (ones that held veggies) so that I can use them to pour bacon grease in, or make fun storage canisters! Perfect for this project! I pulled out a larger can which previously held canned tomatoes - just make sure you rinse them thoroughly and also leave no little spikes from the top of the can - those can hurt!
I found some scrapbook paper which worked fabulous for this project! See all the cute accessories on it? :) First I measured the size of the paper to the can and then hot glued it on. There was a little gap, but no problem!
I pulled some ribbon and made handles, carefully measuring and gluing two straps which covered the gap precisely!
