Hello Ai Fans !!!
Today the challenge is “Show your Bow” , I am going to show you how to make your own card stock bow from a oval punch or die , when you can make your own paper bow, you will always have the right color or pattern to match your card , you can also emboss these to give texture.
so to start I am going to use and oval die from Sizzix I am using the second smallest die its 1 1/8″ wide by 2 1/2″ long , cut two ovals
next fold a 1′ strip in half and thread through die as shown , the tails should be on top of the die so they don’t cut
should look like this when done , you don’t want to cut through the fold
next use a glue dot and fold each oval and attach to base , while the base is folded fork the ends at same time or angle them
next cut a center strip 1/4″ wide by 1″ long , fold over center to hide middle , you can also omit this step and add a button or stone
this is card before the bow , wow this bow adds BAMMMM
next I use this die to make corners as I thought it needed them
inside my card
I hope you enjoyed this how too and now you will never be without a matching bow for your cards or pages
