pumpkin clips flashback post

Pumpkin Clips {Flashback Post}

Hey all! I wanted to share these sweet little pumpkin clips I made for my favorite little person last year. I still have them this year and since my girl is obsessed with pumpkins- she is obsessed with these clips.

I should get some yellow polka dot ribbon and make her some yellow pumpkin clips- oy vey would she be excited!

 Here is the flash back post:

Before I share a tutorial, I would like to provide a disclaimer:
I would like to think that I came up with this on my own, meaning I was playing around with ribbon yesterday and I made these pumpkins. I didn’t see them anywhere else that I can remember nor did follow another tutorial. That being said, I am not going to sit here and say that this is completely original or has never been done before, I am sure it has, but just thought I would share my version to my readers. :)
Ok, on we go!

First things first, cutting the ribbon. In all honesty, I just cut pieces and then went back and measured them and there are 3 pieces of orange (7.5, 5.5, and 2.75 inches) and 1 brown (2 inches).
After that I found the middle and looped one side into that point and hot glued it- if your ribbon has a pattern like mine, you want that on the outside.
Then I did the other side- you want to do this with both the longest pieces.
 Then I took the brown piece and looped it together and hot glued .
Next, I took the biggest orange figure 8 and glued the brown loop in the center. 
Then I nested the other figure 8 inside and over the top of the loop. 
Next, I took the smallest orange piece and glued the ends 
Then I just hot glued it into the center. 
There, they are done!
Let me know if you make some for your little person!

    Absolutely adorable, Michelle!

    Just wanted to stop by and say a quick, “hey there!” It was great meeting you and sharing a table with you at the SoCal Social! That photo that you shared has left me with an indelible smile and memory. Such a fun and clever mama!

    I love this, Michelle! I have missed talking to you as well! This move has been really hard for me to find my groove. The house has been one huge nightmare. Seriously, you would die at home awful the before was. I have documented it & will post eventually. Still working on decorating each new space. I know it will take time. I think I have kind of been feeling sad for myself as well. It’s challenging to start over & have to make new friends in a new area. Things are getting better though. Thanks for the sweet comment. I really have missed you!
