"no gifts" birthday gift

This is Day 11 of  Pass IT On!

Last weekend Addie had another birthday party for one of her new friends.  Her last gift for her friend was a big hit.. check it out hereThis time the invitation said specifically "no gifts please".  Since we don't know them well, I felt like I should honor the mom's request. (yes, you read that right.. if i know you well.. sorry! showing up with a gift for your kid! LOL).  But I still didn't want to show up with nothing.. and I knew Addie wouldn't have that.  So while Addie worked hard on another "most beautiful card", I made a few hair bows.  I figured we could just attach them to the card.. so still no a gift per say.. just a card :)

Hint:  The key is layering.  Use some ribbon of different prints and textures or some tule to add a layer between flowers.

A quick dimension: Fold one side of the ribbon over the other, keeping both right side up.  Put a dab of hot glue to hold it together.  Then add a dot of glue to the inner side and press together. 

Whimsical  Halloween Bow

We added the bows to the beautiful card Addie made.  

I was right.  She wasn't too happy about there not being a "wrapped present".  So she added inside the card what she thought the birthday girl would be wishing she would open.
"U WSHEN FOR A PRS" = "U wishing for a purse"  :)
kids... I can't make this stuff up!

Hope you are enjoying the Pass IT On series!!
