Cricut Circle Hairbow

Hi!  It’s Kendra here and this week I am so excited.  I am heading to Atlanta Ga on Thursday for the Cricut Circle Crop on Friday.  In honor of going, I decided that I wanted to make something festive to wear.  I came up with the Cricut Circle Hairbow.  It was pretty simple to make and only took a few minutes to complete. 

You will only need a few supplies to make your very own hairbow:

  • The Cricut Expression
  •  The Everyday Cricut Cartridge
  •  White Shrinky Dink
  • Green Lectraset ProMarker
  • A Very Sticky Mat
  • Heat Gun
  • a soda can to mold your hairbow around
  • Scissors

  1. Using the Cricut Expression and a Multicut of 2, Place the Shrinky Dink on a Sticky Mat and set your size to 8 inches.
  2. Select the Cricut Circle Logo from the Everday Cricut Cartridge and press Cut.
  3. Once the image has finished cutting, CAREFULLY remove it from your mat making sure that you do not to tear it. 
  4. Color the Logo with a Green Letraset Marker on both sides letting it dry in between.
  5. With the Heat Gun shrink the Shrinky Dink Material and while it is hot carefully mold around the soda can.
  6. Using the scissors, cut an 11 inch strip of Shrinky Dink material make the stick that hold your hairbow in your hair.  Be sure to make it wider on one end and narrow on the other end.  Color this green also and shrink it using the heat gun.

This is a great idea to make as gifts using squares, circles and even triangles.  I would love to see any hairbows that you happen to come up with.  Be sure to link your creations to our blog!

Happy Scrappin’
