What’s Up Wednesday Weekly Link Party + Bowdabra Giveaway

I’m sad that the 12 Days of Handmade Ornaments has officially come to an end; however, I had so much fun seeing all the creative ideas on handmade ornaments! I was busy this past weekend working on my own Christmas crafts that I’ll be posting about in the coming week. At this point I hope everyone has a majority of their shopping completed! I can’t believe Christmas is in 11 days!

I have a very exciting giveaway today from the wonderful people at Bowdabra! For those who aren’t aware I do a few guest blog post on the Bowdabra Blog each month! I’ve been a huge advocate of the Bowdabra for a few years now. I’ve created a few Bowdabra projects on Sew Woodsy over the past few months.  I never was able to make beautiful bows before owning the Bowdabra. Today, I’m excited to giveaway a Mini Bowdabra, Hair Bow Tool & Ruler, and Bowdabra Bow Wire! If you don’t own one it will truly change your bow making life!

Creative hair bow making is now easier with the new Hair Bow Tool, designed exclusively for the Mini Bowdabra. Pinwheel, dove tails, boutique and beaded bows are just a few of the many designs included with the Hair Bow Tool, all contained in a 500 page interactive software CD.

The Mini Bowdabra and Hair Bow Tool combination gives you the freedom to create pet bows, baby bows, even decorate your scrap book project.

The Hair Bow Tool & Ruler fits easily over the Mini Bowdabra. The ruler allows you to measure your hair bow loops perfectly every time! Mass produce hair bows for a home business, create matching bows for pig-tails, or make bows best suited for the size and breed of your furry friends!

To learn more about the Mini Bowdabra and Hair Bow Tool & Ruler visit Bowdabra.com. For free step-by-step hair bow making tutorials by Bowdabra Designers please visit our Bowdabrablog. The Mini Bowdabra and Hair Bow Tool & Ruler can be found at most major craft stores and online at Bowdabra Ribbons Crafts & Things Store.
