Of all the adorable lace-inspired accessories I’ve made for my daughter with HBC’s variety of beautiful lace, this is her absolute favorite! Not only do these lace boot cuffs look super sweet and stylish underneath all her boots, they only take minutes to make! I can’t believe I ever considered paying $10-$20 per pair online from specialty boutique shops, when I can make them myself for a small fraction of the price! Let’s get started! Continue reading

Ribbon Cross

The cross is the reason for the Easter season, and here at the HairBow Center, we believe the reason for every season!  Instead of gifting chocolate Easter bunnies this year, give a more meaningful gift by making some of these beautiful hand-made ribbon cross embellishments.  Attach a broach pin for ladies or a hair clip for children.  These ribbon crosses would be gorgeous in pastel satin ribbons and also in smaller sizes.  I would personally love this in either a white or deep purple shade for the symbolism of those colors.  Have a blessed Easter season! ~Kristi

Adjustable Bow Ties for Boys!

 My 7th-grade son completely floored me last week when he offhandedly mentioned that if I was out shopping, he wouldn’t mind having a bow-tie for Thur. dress-up days at school. He then admitted that there were some high school boys who had started wearing them.  I stand amazed {and in fear} in the power of “cool kids” to sway younger minds.  Had I suggested the bow tie, I can only imagine the ensuing monologue of how crazy, out-of-touch, un-stylish, un-cool, {insert un-everything else} of a mom I am.  Thankfully, I love bow-ties, so this is a win-win!  I had to giggle when I read Brittany’s “Bow Tie” post she recently submitted, and now I am off to match some ribbon colors to my sons’ dress shirts…

How to make Ribbon Paperclip Bookmarks

While I (ahem) don’t see the effective utilization of a day planner in my near future {{I would first have to pay attention to my sticky note telling me to purchase one}}, I am loving this idea to mark pages of articles I want to note for future reference in my magazine stash or group like content together of the pages I have torn out and are currently not-so-tidily shoved in folders.  Embellishments can even make clutter look pretty, right?!  Thanks for sharing your great idea Cassie!

Hey ya’ll, Cassie here!  It seems like a while since I have posted, but in reality it hasn’t.  I just recently switched things up a bit from doing 2 postings a month to 1. 🙂 Today, I am going to share with you my love of planner accessories!  Since October I have become to love planning more than ever. I purchased a Happy Planner {{ this can NOT be purchased at HairBow Center }} but the items you purchase from HairBow Center can be turned into some amazing accessories for your planner.

So if you love planning as much as I do or if you need a quick, easy and adorable bookmark for any reason, then this blog tutorial is perfect for you! Continue reading
