Cute & Easy Fabric/Ribbon Bandaids

Kids and ouchies seem to go hand in hand... or maybe that should be 'on knee & knees'? If you have children or have a child occasionally in your care, there's a really good chance that you have a small stash of boxes, with bandaids in different sizes and colors, ready to go at a moments notice! (Just ask Alaina's teacher!!)

Since I'm almost positive that my children see bandaids as removable body-art stickers, it was quickly becoming an expensive new hobby for us. With this simple idea, there's no need to purchase those neon shades or the cartoon character bandaids anymore. Now you can make your own cute fabric bandaids with just a few materials and only 3 quick steps!




Materials:

Glue Dots - Craft
Fabric Adhesive Bandaids (I like the generic fabric bandaids)
ribbon or fabric scraps




Directions

1. Unwrap the bandaids from package and place 3 glue dots on the top of the bandaid



2. Add a small piece of fabric or ribbon on top.



3. Trim the excess fabric off from around the edges of the bandaid.



Alaina and I had alot of fun whipping up this cute little tutorial.. hope you like it!!

Band-aids are very desired around here. Every minor little owie apparently warrants a bandaid so I think we's gonna do this.

Soooo Cute!! My nephew is always getting banged up or scraped. Last time he asked why I only had the 'boring' band-aids. He will be surprised when I pull out a colorful box of band-aids just for him.
Thanks,
Aunt Kayla :)

I'm 62 yo and I have an owwie on my elbow. I think it deserves a designer band aid. THANKS!!!

these are adorable! i'm making them right now... and i'm secretly becoming addicted! i actually used spray adhesive instead of the glue dots, since that's what i had on hand... it works great! thanks for the sweet idea!

Safiyyah said...

So pinning this!!! I have plenty of ribbon, I just need to purchase the glue dots and fabric bandaids. When I always them, I will have to put them up where my little ones can't get to them, the would stick them everywhere lol.
