St. Patrick's burlap bow

First of all, I am not a model, I don't proclaim to be and I absolutely hate these pictures of myself, but this is what you get!
Second, sorry about the little blur spot on all of my pictures. I didn't notice it until they were all taken and uploaded! I'm too lazy to redo them!

Anyhow, here is a tutorial for this burlap bow! It is a fun bow to make!

To make the flowers for the bow. Start with a square piece of fabric. For bigger flowers cut a bigger square, or smaller for smaller bows.

Fold in half

Then fold in half again!

Then fold the bottom right corner up to meat the top left corner. It should look like this.

Then take your sissors and cut a half circle

It should look like this when you are done cutting. Sorry it is such a small picture.

After you unfold it, it should look like a flower.

Then I did some with burlap. Doing different sizes so I could stack them.

Here it is after I layered them.

Now Glue each layer on top of the other.

I took my clip and covered it with ribbon and hot glued it to the back of the bow.

Then I took a button and covered it with Elmer's glue and then sprinkled glitter over it. I let it dry and then glued a gem on.

This literally took me 5 minutes!

This would look so much cuter on my daughters!!!
