Review: I really enjoy doing reviews that allow N and I to have quality time together. I must admit, I'm shamefully crafty-challenged. I've seen so many women/fellow bloggers creating beautiful handmade items. I couldn't help but to feel sad...sigh... But NOT anymore hahahaha! (-sings-) I can make a bow! I can make a bow! and it's all thanks to the Bowdabra bowmaker!
I opened the box, and the first thought in my mind was, "oh my goodness, you are not crafty! What did you get yourself into!" I even asked our Facebook friends to wish me luck! I popped in the DVD, and I followed right along. Sandy's directions are so simple and easy to follow. It only took me a matter of 2-3 minutes to complete a bow. I stared at it, and was truly shocked! I ran to show N the bow, and she said " oh cool, I want to make one!" and it was on!!! I explained how to use it, and together we created a "Fold and Twist Bow" and then a "Double Fold and Twist Bow." Honey, we were on a roll! We were so into it, that we didn't realize the time, and it was a little past her bed time. The next day after school we continued making bows. Then she wanted to do it all by herself, she made 2 bows. Then I found some of our hair clips, and hot glued them to the back of her bow.
Here are the final results of our bows.

The Bowdabra is the perfect DIY tool! Thanks so much Sandy we enjoyed reviewing the bowdabra! You can find the Bowdabra at their website http://bowdabra.com/
