Handmade Holiday Challenge, Gifts #4 and 5

I know that at least one of these folks is a regular reader of my blog, but since I already told Anna about my gift for the little girls (they are no longer babies! :-(), I figured I'd go ahead and debut it.

I made two bow boards in addition to Cady's for a total of three. They were fairly easy to make and I'm excited about getting Cady's hung up in her room and getting all of her bows situated after Christmas. I wrote about Cady's bow board and the fabric that she chose here. The other two I made are exactly the same because both Anna and my cousin used similar color schemes for their girls. In fact, Anna used this exact fabric in the twins' nursery. I hope that they are both as excited about these fun creations as I am!

So, without further ado, here's the picture of one of the completed bow boards:

I chose not to include a ribbon "hanger" because the board can actually be hung without it. Or, it can be propped up on a bookcase if someone would rather not hang it on the wall. I opted for leaving the options open. Plus I'm planning to hang Cady's with no ribbon, which made the decision easier ;-)
