Crafty Ribbons Vintage Polka Dot Shoe Clips

Hey everyone, hope you are well! I am with some more shoe clips that I have made to accessorise my new vintage dresses from Lindy Bop :) I used Crafty Ribbons Basics to Go Grosgrain ribbons, Crafty Ribbons Polka Dot Ribbon, beads and shoe clip blanks.
I started by gluing four black grosgrain ribbons with a fold in the middle of the back, then two of the white polka dot. I used a peg to make sure they dried securely.

I then glued two of the black ribbons into a bow shape (not tying a knot keeps the bow from being too bulky!) and then added the white polka dot in the centre with the black ribbons peeking out from behind it.  I repeated this with the other side.

I then sewed a line of seed beads in the centre using a beading needle. Lastly I glued onto the shoe clips using a glue gun.

I love these because you can wear them on any shoes, any time-and any where on the shoe! They don't damage your shoes so you can switch up basic shoes and make them really special and match your outfit!

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Through the Craft Room Door: Anything Goes
Artistic Inspiration: Anything Goes
Craft-Dee Bowz: Anything Goes
