My very first creative craft!

I usually stick to things that have directions to follow (cross stitching etc) since I am terrible at creative thinking, but when I saw some barrette boards I knew I had to give it a shot for DD and two of my nieces for Christmas. Here they are!!! This was also the first time I've ever used a hot glue gun and an electric stapler. Let me know what you think....HONESTLY! Any suggestions for if I decide to make a couple more in the future (less busy fabric with fancier ribbon? Busy fabric with solid ribbons?)

They're great!

If you do more I'd do a fun print w/ the 2 outside ribbons in one solid color & then the center one in a contrasting solid.

Hopeful, the bottom ribbons have a piece of velcro so you can undo them and put headbands, scrunchies etc on them.
