Punched Paper Bow


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!
