Mini Bow Rings Made from Oilcloth

DIY mini bow rings This last weekend my blogger pal Lisa from Handcrafted Parties came by to check out and test my new Cricut Explore. We uploaded my mini bow file to see if we could make a few felt bows and somehow ended up with mini mini bows. A happy accident I do think because I immediately saw them as cute little bow rings. I made a set of these bow rings from the oilcloth leftover from my two zipper bag posts. The Cricut Explore cuts oilcloth very well. With some silver elastic and hot glue, I have a colorful and fun accessory. I have been wearing a few the last few day and even had my nails painted to match! More fun projects coming up on new ways to use Cricut Explore.   ~ Lia

  12. These are adorable! Yes, please share how you made these and the mini bow template. I have a Silhouette Cameo, not a Cricut, so I may have to cut them by hand.

  13. Hahaha, you actually did it! It was quite the happy accident. Yes, we need a cut file and printable template of these! They can be your Itty Bitty Bows! I still want to make some like these…what a darling accessory for grown ups and kids alike! :)
