I had several people ask me about the bow that was on my 5 Minute Inspiration card several days ago.
So today I thought I would put up a quick post showing how to make this fast and easy embellishment.
All the measurements are just approximate. I like to make
my strips a little longer just "in case" I goof up!
DSP of your choice. The DSP works better then the CS
2 Ovals - I used SU! Large Oval (119855)
3 Strips of DSP - I used Polka Dot Parade ( 126902)
1- 1/8" x 1 1/2"
1- 1/4" x 2 1/2" , 1- 1/2" x4"
Using the smaller piece, adhere glue dots to ovals and place across like a bridge. This is what holds the ovals together. I did trim my bridge piece.
Add a glue dot to the end of the ovasl and curl over a paint brush or paper piercing tool being careful not to crease the bow end. I find the paint brush to work better for me.
Now take the 1/4" piece, add a glue dot and wrap around the bow middle.
Notch the longer 1/2" piece to form the bow tails, use a glue dot adhere
the bow to the tails and your done!
I hope you give this a try.
Have a great and CRAFTY day!
