The bow is made from a 36 L x 1 W inch strip of fabric tied into a knot on top.  I tore the fabric to give it a rustic look, and to simplify since we were making so many.  We got a great deal on the vinyl form Cheri at The Name Frame.  She charges about two dollars per piece.

We do a big group birthday party for our Young Women every January and invite the 11 year-olds that will be entering YW to attend also.  We had so much fun and the girls LOVED the gifts.  I hope this helps someone else!" fulltext
