Hi, Everybody! Today I would like to show you how to make a Super Easy Paper Bow to decorate any of your gifts with a little of your own personal style.
Gather the following items:
-Your favorite pattern 12"x12" paper. (I chose Florentine (Product# X7153B) B&T Duos Paper from CTMH)
-Paper Trimmer (Product# Z1783)
-Tombo Mono Adhesive (Product# 1514)
-Glue Dots (Product# 1772)
Once you have gathered everything that you need, cut your paper into 3/4 inch strips. Leave 6 of the strips full size. Cut 1 inch off 4 of the strips. Cut 2 inches off 1 of the strips. And lastly cut 1 strip down to 5 inches. The remaining strips put aside as backup fillers.
Twist each strip with loose loops on each side (except for the 5inch strip). Secure the ends to the center with the double sided tape. Then take the 5 inch strip & form it into a circle & secure it with a glue dot.
Take 3 of the larger pieces & layer them on top of each other. Make sure to space them evenly & secure the center with a staple. Repeat process with remaining 3 large pieces. Then stack & secure the 2 pieces with a glue dot.
Take 4 of the 11 inch pieces & layer them on top of each other. Make sure to space them evenly & secure the center with a staple. Then stack & secure it to the center of the bow with a glue dot.
Take the 10 inch piece & secure it to the center of the bow with a glue dot.
Finally, take the 5 inch loop & place it into the center before securing it. If it looks like the bow may need some extra loops then take one of your extra strips & cut it down to 10 inches. Twist the strip with 2 loops on each side, secure it the center of bow & then secure the 5 inch loop. If it doesn't need the extra loop then secure the 5 inch loop to the center.
That's it, Your Done! Get busy making your bows today as the Holiday's are rapidly approaching us.
