Free Hair Bow Instructions - How to make easy no-slip grips
I didn't use the white background like I do in my hair bow instructions and pdf tutorials, but this is still clear and easy to see on my cutting mat!
*A roll of shelf liner, available at any big-box retail store. You can get "Easy Liner" or any similar brand, which is like a ridged, compressible foam. It's usually under $5 per roll.
*A double-prong pinch clip (single-prong will work as well)
*Hot glue gun and glue
*Scissors or rotary cutter and mat
1. Cut a 1/4" strip of the shelf liner from end to end, like this:
2. Now, cut this into 1-1/4" sections, as below:
3. After mounting your clip to the back of your bow, simply glue the shelf liner strip to the bottom inside of the pinch clip. Make sure you glue it securely from end to end, and you'll have to hold it open for about 30 seconds to make sure the glue doesn't seep through and glue your clip shut!! (that would defeat the purpose, wouldn't it!)
And that's it! It's such a simple method of creating a no-slip grip, and the shelf liner can be purchased in other colors and textures if you're looking to coordinate with your bows. There are other methods of creating no-slip grippers as well, and I'd love for you all to share your ideas!
