Some of the participating artisans are also doing guest posts and here is our first one, from a familiar name around here. Maryanne and I have been online cropping buddies for awhile now and I've even got a few of her wonderful paper crafts, my personal favorite is the scrappy box she made me. I'll let her take it from here...

Mini Tutorial for you!
Today I wanted to share with you some fun bow holders I made for my baby girl. I bought these wooden fence looking boards that already came with a hook and a hanger. I, with the help of my 2 year old son, painted these with black acrylic paint along with the hanger and the hook. I let them dry and added some thick lime green ribbon and then some hot pink polka dot ribbon (about of foot a piece of each ribbon) on the top of that with glue dots (craft/super glue would be stronger to hold lots of bows).
Very simple and so cute!!!
A couple weeks ago, I even taught a class to make these bow holders. Here are how some others turned out. =D
