Clips, bows, and more clips...

Until recently, my daughter's hair things had their own drawer in the bathroom. It worked well when cleaning up since I could toss everything in the same place. However, it posed a problem when I was looking for something to put in her hair. Digging through the drawer to find a clip and its potentially non-existent match was a pain. It was time for a better system.

I searched for some ideas. There were a ton of bow holders, but they only held clips. I wanted something with pockets for all the ribbons and hair bands. So I spent an hour at Hobby Lobby trying to find something that would form the base for me to hang everything from. I finally ended up in the Easter section and found a cute little frame with a baby chick in the middle. I switched the chick for a butterfly. The pockets are just a long strip of material that I folded up to form pockets. I put two lengths of ribbon on each side because I found two great ribbons and couldn't decide which to use (pink or purple). It turned out to be a good decision, I didn't realize how many clips she had until the ribbons started filling up.

My daughter is so excited about it that she keeps bringing me clips to put in her hair. She's also discovered that she can force Daddy to put clips in his own hair. She's got him wrapped around her little finger.
