Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. We hope you’ve made your dinner reservations and date plans for your special someone or group of friends if you’re celebrating SAD (Single Awareness Day). Either way, M.I.S.S. is here to make sure you do so in style with a magnetic bow perfect to prep up your wardrobe without worrying about getting holes on your shirt (pins tend to do this) or whether or not you know how to tie a bow (even with youtube, this can still be a little tricky). Afterall, Ears on the street is that the prep look is definitely IN!

She's Crafty: Magnetic Bowtie

Materials Needed:
– Fabric (12.5×3.5 inches)
– Batting (9×2.5 inches)
– Glue gun
– Glue sticks
– Scissors
– 2 Magnets (Can also use 1 magnet and a thin metal piece as a backing. Make sure it sticks to the magnet)

STEP 1: Lay Fabric flat, wrong side up. Fold your batting in half and put it on top of the fabric.

STEP 3: Fold and glue the fabric at the 2 inch mark. From the point of where you glued the end, measure another 2 inches and fold and glue the fabric again.

STEP 4: Using the leftover fabric, wrap it around to create a bow and glue the ends. Cut any excess fabric. Make sure to cinch the middle to create a better shape. And finally, glue a magnet at the back of the bow.

TO WEAR: Using the second magnet, put it in the back of your garment where you plan to place your bow. Get creative! Use it as a pin or a bow for your button up. It’s an easy way to look spiffy and dolled up for your Valentine’s date and all year round. Enjoy!
