For the basic design, I used the tutorial on A Small Snippet's blog.I did a few things different:
1. I wanted it longer so I made my cardboard 7"x 18"
2. My fabric store didn't sell the rolls of tulle (which I want to try next time), instead I bought 3 yards of each color (6 yards altogether). Then folded, wrapped, and cut to make the strips needed.
Tip: This pictures looks loose, but it actually needs to have no spaces or gaps between tulle. You don't want to see the elastic.
Then I added some flair using a skinny ribbon between every 2 slip knots from Twigs and Toadstool's blog.
Finally, I wrapped a satin ribbon around the top using the tutorial on Treasures for Tots.
And I used Chatelaine's tutorial for tying the perfect bow! It was for tying on a box but I improvised.
This is my finished product! I am so excited!! :)
