Jessica, I have an instruction booklet I purchased to learn how to make "show bows" along with a bag of bands and a bag of the snap type barretts. If you make the bows yourself and stitch them to the barretts you don't have to deal with the rubber bands. I have a small bag of ribbon and some other doo-dads, things to put into the center of the bows to make them "cutsie". I would like to get rid of it and figure I have about $25.00 total in all of it. Sisse NEVER got use to bows and I am more afraid of her choking on one of them then I am about how "cute" she looks. If you would like to buy it, I will be glad to send it to you.......you can PM me. I'll be happy to pay the shipping...it's not that big of a deal.
