Or rather, I love for my daughters to have every outfit topped off with a complimentary bow. Since my girls have 1500 outfits each that means 1500 bows each for a grand total of 3000 bows (okay there is some slight exaggeration going on , but that is a close number). I first tried an AWESOME idea that a friend of mine had come up with to re-purpose one of my husbands
OH the frustration of getting two girls dressed for school and not being able to track down a bow that they had worn just three days before because they didn't put it back on their bow tie.
Enter a quick shopping trip to my local Dollar General where, SCORE, I bought this garbage can for $1.50!!
As you can see its hot pink which perfectly matches my girls crazy room and will perfectly match what I am slowly trying to remodel their room into
You know something like this:
Anyway that is for a different post altogether. Back to the mess of bows. This is about a 1/3rd of the bows:
As you can see in the picture above the clips that have the pinchy release clasps (yes that is the technical name for them) and any barrette style we did clipped on the very top lip of the Bow-Can. Simply because we were able to close the clips that way and they would stay attached.
And we clipped more
Here's a close up of what the inside looks like with the bows clipped on. The Bow-Can, as its now known, has most of the bows attached in an easy to see way and the ones that didn't have clips are inside rather than clipped to the outside.
Hope you find something ordinary to re-purpose, and turn into an extraordinarily useful of beautiful part of your life. Leave me a comment letting me know how your projects are turning out, or your thoughts and ideas on this one. I would love to hear from you and will respond.
Have a great and Blessed day today!
