Announcement   I do not have end of the year sales but look for special promotions during the year. My 2016 Christmas promotion was successful so it will return for 2017! Thank you to everyone who purchased items from my shop. I look forward to seeing new and returning customers in 2017.

I love making gift bows, wreaths, candle rings, ornaments and mug flower arrangements. I hand make everything in my shop out of the best material I can find. My bows are unique because they incorporate silk flowers or Christmas picks with wired ribbon. I use almost the same techniques floral designers use for their arrangements and bows with the exception of silk flowers instead of fresh flowers.

All of my bows are reusable and won't end up in a landfill like some other disposable products. In fact, people fall in love with them and have a hard time giving them away!

Small bows are wrapped in tissue paper and placed in a cardboard box with bubble wrap on the top and bottom. Larger bows have tissue paper stuffed in each bow loop and then wrapped in tissue paper, bubble wrap and placed in a cardboard box. I also trim the wire on the ribbon so you will not get punctured. All gifts include an Etsy invoice and a personalize, handwritten thank you note.

About

I love working with flowers and ribbon to create pretty bows for gifts. I have recently expanded my line into floral arrangements for the home

I opened JDsBowCreations in 2012 making gift bows with wired ribbon and silk flowers or glitter Christmas picks.

My journey toward making gift bows for packages began in the fall of 2011 when my friend (and fellow retiree) and I decided to bake sweets for craft shows. We baked a variety of items, created displays and gift trays. I taught myself how to make gift wrapping bows and attached them to the trays of assorted chocolates we sold for the holidays. People loved the bows and bought the trays for the bows NOT the candy that was on them! In the end customers were buying the just bows. After 6 craft shows and having people tell us that they weren’t buying because they were diabetic, giving up sugar or on a diet, we stopped our joint venture.

I was restless and needed something to occupy my time so I checked into Etsy.com and decided to open up a shop selling my unique floral and ribbon gift bows. I started writing policies, setting up shipping costs and doing all the background work after Christmas 2011. I placed inventory in my shop on January 15, 2012.

I love flowers, have a natural eye for color and had worked with my sister (who has an in-home floral business) on wedding flowers whenever I was home so making gift bows with silk flowers and ribbon seemed like a normal course of action for me. All of my bows are made similar to the ones made by florists with the exception of silk flowers instead of fresh flowers.

I started out with Christmas, Valentine’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day bows. I gradually created bows for other special events. I wanted to keep my shop fresh and offer more variety so I began listing bell and broom ornaments in 2013. I now offer candle rings, wreaths, mug arrangements, filled ornaments as well as gift bows. If you asked me what my goal is, I would say that I want to make every gift package look elegant with a handmade bow on top!

    I make UNIQUE gift bows with silk flowers, buttons and wired ribbon. Each flower bundle is wrapped in 24 gauge wire, covered with floral tape and added to the ribbon. Bows can be saved and reused over and over.
