I'm back with the FREE TUTORIAL on how to make that cute little bow from the Envelope Box the other day. This might get long but I wanted you to see in pics the steps to make it. I'm not ready to make a video yet, so I hope this will do!
You will need 3 of the smaller oval punch and 4 of the larger oval punch
On 2 of the Large Ovals you will want to snip away to create the 'fish tail' end cut
Then with 1 mini glue dot, stack one oval just slightly over the other oval of same size for 1 set of Large and 1 set of Small Ovals.
The last Small Oval remains until the end
With 1 mini glue dot on an edge of the oval, fold and adhere to center where ovals meet. do this for each size of oval pairs.
I don't know if you can really see it in the photo but I like to alternate my sides to come into the center ... hoping it creates strength somehow I guess ... in the end it probably doesn't matter
Repeat with 1 mini glue dot on the other edge and bring 2nd side of oval into center, creating the layer of the bow. do this for each size of oval pairs.
Using 1 mini glue dot mount each of the bottom L/R fish tail ends under the L/R layer of the bow
Now you can use 1 mini glue dot and adhere the smaller oval to the center of the larger oval, thus creating the 2 layers of bow and bottom layer ribbon ends
The last Small Oval is just to create a bit of strength to the bow
I am showing it with the opposite side of pattern facing up so you can see where I placed it
but here's what it looks like once I adhered it with 2 mini glue dots
and here is the finished view of the paper layers
you could wrap with paper around the center or ribbon or add a button with twine like I did
And here's that cute little Envelope Box and the pretty little paper bow
I hope you give it a try! I'll be back with some pictures of the swaps I received at my team meeting next, so stop by again!
Thanks, happy stamping!
