Hello everybody! I hope you guys are well.
I absolutely love making my own paper bows so when I came across this wonderful DIY tutorial at http://www.howaboutorange.blogspot.com/2013/04/how-to-make-paper-bow.html I knew that I would be sharing it with you immediately. It’s that awesome for all you crafters out there.
There’s a free PDF template at the link posted above. I used several colorful cardstock papers to make my bows, but of course you can always use regular paper or simply print out the template on cardstock, because it’s sturdier, and trace onto any other paper like newspaper, magazine pages, scrapbook paper, etc. The possibilities are endless and here’s a great idea for a one of a kind paper bow: print the template on regular paper, have your child design it (color it in), cut and put it together. They’ll be smiles all around!
Paper cutting frenzy
I decided to use brads at the center to hold my bows together. Then I wrapped and glued the final piece.
I literally squealed with delight.
This project and its end result made me really happy.
I love these bows and can’t wait to make more. Many, many more!
THANKS to Jessica Jones at http://www.howaboutorange.blogspot.com/ for creating this template and offering it to everyone. I’m a new fan and follower!
Take good care all.
Until next time…
