Minnie Mouse How To for 733 blog

Hi there!
I’m Tricia from Take 10 With Tricia
I’m so thrilled to be here for Disney Love Week at seven thirty three.
Recently I was asked to help a friend with her daughter’s first birthday. She had an adorable “first birthday” onesie that had Minnie Mouse ears on it with a big red bow. She asked me to make a matching red with white polka dot bow for her daughter’s hair. Well, I did that…and took it a step further. Every Minnie lover needs a Minnie Mouse clippie.
Do you need one too? The steps are easy. I had to make another one, but in hot pink. So I photographed the steps below for anyone that wants to copy the process. I used 3/8″ ribbon for all of it.
Minnie Mouse’s Head:
3 3/4 inches of black ribbon
3 inches
2 1/4 inches
Each of Minnie Mouse’s Ears (so do this twice):
2 inches
1 1/2 inches
You also need enough ribbon to cover whichever type of clippie you are going to put it on. I used a double alligator and covered it with about 6.5 inches of pink with white polka dots. The final piece of pink is for the “bow” on Minnie’s head. I ballparked that. I use hot glue for everything.

One of my friend’s helped me figure out how to put this clippie together.
It’s one she’s been making for awhile now.
However, I also found some great and extremely detailed instructions here as well:
For Minnie Mouse and LOTS of other cool clippies.
