Paper Bow Tutorial

Hi there!

I'm glad that so many of you were able to join in the hop yesterday. As promised, here is the paper bow tutorial! Please excuse the photographs on some of the steps, my stamp room doesn't get fantastic light. If you use this tutorial to make bows, please leave me a comment and link up your project, I'd love to see them :)

Materials Needed:
6 x 12 piece of double sided patterned paper, brads & glue dots

Step 1
Trim (8) strips of 6 x12 pieces of paper.
Turn your paper in your trimmer and trim (1) 1 x 4 strip of paper.
Then turn your paper back and trim (4) strips of 1 x 5.

Step 2
Flip (4) strips of 1 x 6 and the 1 x 5 strips as seen below.

Step 3
Run adhesive along the bottom edge only of your 1 x 6 strips.

Step 4
Flip your strip around and adhere together as shown below.
Do this for each of the 1 x 6 and 1 x 5 strips keeping your strips in groups of four.

Step 5
Take the 4 strips and put them together as shown below.
Using your paper piercer or punch, make a hole and place a brad here.

Do this for each of the groups of 4 strips, this is what you will have.

Step 6
Place adhesive on the bottom of your 1 x 4 strips and adhere together as shown.

Step 7
Start layering each of the groups together using a glue dot between each one.

Step 8
Adhere your smallest piece in the center of the bow using a glue dot.

Congrats, you are finished!!!

If you have any questions please email me or leave a comment. I can't wait to see those bows.
Have fun!!!
