Hair Bow Holder

Can anyone think of a cuter name for this? I can't think of anything besides hair bow holder...blah! Anyway, this was supposed to be a Christmas gift for Molly, but I obviously didn't get it done by then (otherwise you would have already seen it!). It wasn't hard, I was just slow/lazy/busy, your pick. Anyway, its been sitting around and today I finally went to the store to get some ribbon to hold the hair clips. (Mostly it took me so long because I couldn't decide what ribbon to use. I had some options, but didn't really like any of them.)

So here it is, all finished! I really like the green ribbon with the white and blue polk-a-dots. I think it added a nice touch. I was planning on hanging it on the wall, but now I'm wondering if I'll just put it on an easel instead...? I'm not quite sure, but the wood alone is almost 5 lbs.

Viola! I showed my parents (it's fun having a live audience when I've finished projects to show) and my dad thinks I should sell them! Ha! I'm sure there are 500 people on etsy that already do! There's no way I am the original on this! Although, I will have you know that I actually haven't seen this exact thing in person ever...I don't think.

And Molly wanted to make sure it met her approval. It's kind of nice to have them all here and not in a box so they're all covered up and I have to dig around to find the one I want!
For those who'd like the tutorial, here's what I did. I bought the piece of wood from a cool place called Wood Connection. Actually my mom and sister picked it up one day while they were there. I think it cost me $5 and the two holes at the top were already drilled in. Then of course I sanded and painted the edges and mod podged the scrapbook paper on. Then I glue gunned the ribbon on each end, top and bottom. That's it!

Your bow holder definitely matches my baby's room! We'll have to chat about how to make it cuz right now she's got a lot of bows that are stuffed in a box.
