Materials Needed:
  • 3/8″ ribbon
    • red with white dots
    • navy& white lollipop stripes
  • 7/8″ ribbon
    • turquoise
    • white
    • navy
    • red & white stripe

  • 1″ epoxy dot
  • 1″ bottle cap
  • E6000 glue
  • scissors
  • needle and thread
  • hot glue gun
  • lighter or heat seal source
Measurements: (and what the pieces are for)
  • 16″ of 7/8″ turquoise for boutique bow
  • 5″ of 3/8″ red with white dots for center
  • 4.5″ of 3/8″ red with white dots for clip liner
  • 6″ of 3/8″ red with white dots for center wrap
  • (2) 9″ of 3/8″ red with white dots for top bow surround
  • (2) 9.5″ of 3/8″ white & navy lollipop stripes for bottom bow surround
  • Spikes (all 4″, but I think 4.5″ would have worked better on this bow)
    • (2) 7/8″ turquoise
    • (2) 7/8″ white
    • (2) 7/8″ navy
    • (1) 7/8″ red & white stripe
Note:
After making boutique bow, it measured 3″ from corner to corner. So to measure the spikes I added 1″ and cut them at 4″.  However, these spikes ended up a bit too short and didn’t stick out under the bow at all.  I would try measuring spikes to be 1.5″ longer than longest length of the boutique bow.
