Simple Ribbon Clips Craft

Mummy has been very interested in making kiddie clips for children as I wanted to make use of the big bag of plain clips I recently bought (50 pieces for $11.50 bought at Jalan Sultan).
Today, I went shopping for craft materials at Chinatown and came across some very pretty ribbons at this big craft store called Golden Dragon.
Here is a link of the store in case you wish to visit them.
Some of the pretty ribbons costs between $0.70-$1.50 per meter.
I find this place quite well-stocked and reasonably priced for craft materials.
There are some other beads stores within People's Park Centre that you can also browse around to look for materials. Highly recommended to check this place out.

Materials Needed:
1. Metals Clips
2. Grosgrain ribbons
3. Scissors

4. Hot glue gun

1. First, measure then cut out 14cm of the ribbon to make a bow for one clip. You will also need to to cut out another 4cm of the ribbon to wrap around the centre of the bow.

2. To make 4 clips, cut out 4 pieces of 14cm ribbons and 4 pieces of 4cm ribbons.

3. Pinch the ribbon to the back, then hot glue (a little glue will do) to stick it to place.
Do the same for the other side and glue it down.

4. Next wrap around the centre of the bow using the 4cm ribbon. Use a little hot glue to glue it down.
 5. Lastly, hot glue the bottom of the bow. Then paste it onto the metal clip like so.

Here you have it - a simple ribbon craft project that will cost you less than a dollar and less than 5 minutes to make!
You can let your little girl wear the pretty cute clips to school or even make these as party favours for your daughter's birthday party.
They are simple, easy & also cheap to make, yet they look so cute!
Hope you will give this a try.
