DIY Bow Holder for $5, in 5 Minutes!

Here is a short tutorial on how to make a bow holder for only $5 (plus or minus a few) in under 5 minutes.

Foam initial from Michael's Craft
Glue gun

First you will need your initial
1.99 at Michael's

Then you will need ribbon. 
You can use any that you have around the house.

You will need one small piece ( you can fold your ribbon in half, or cut it so that it is not as wide) and one large piece. 
You can make the bow holder piece (that is going to be glued to the bottom) as long as you want. 

Once you have your letter, ribbon and glue gun, you are ready.
Flip your letter over to attach your ribbon. 

Glue the top of your ribbon and press it against the back (at the bottom) of your letter.

Once you have the bottom ribbon glued, it is time to glue the top ribbon. Add a dot of glue to each end, and press that against the top (back side) of your letter. 

This is what it will look like from the back:

Let the glue dry, and you are done! 

Once you are done, this is what you have!
You can also use two pieces of ribbon instead of one at the bottom. Have fun with this. There are many possibilities, and they make GREAT baby shower, or birthday gifts.

So this isn't the best tutorial in the world, so if you have questions, just let me know!! :)
