The tutorial covers a how-to for four different bow types which will be the perfect element to finish off your project. Learn how to create these beautiful bows by visiting Under the Inkfluence.

4. Pinwheels

Okay this is a tutorial for hair clips, but Delilah and I agree that these would be perfect to add to cards, pages, and projects. This step-by-step tutorial shows you how to make some fabulous fabric pinwheels which you could glue to your project with either an adhesive, pop dots, etc. Card makers can take it  a step further and attach the pinwheel to their cards with a pin or clip and then person receiving the card would also get a too cute hair/clothing accessory! See the instructions and details at The Mother Huddle.

5. T-Shirt Flower

Delilah has a thing for flowers. The more the merrier for her. When she seen this wonderful tutorial for creating flowers from T-Shirts we both agreed it was perfect. We all have old t-shirts we aren’t using anymore what better way to recycle them by creating your own flower embellishment for your projects. Head on over to Emily’s Little World to learn how to make these beauties yourself!
