I made this card with the March kit at My Creative Scrapbook. The kit features the pretty Collectable line from My Mind's Eye.
To give this card a little extra flair, I made a simple paper bow.
I started by cutting 3 strips of paper the same width but different lengths: 5.5 inches, 4.5 inches and 3.5 inches. I notched the end of the longest strip. This will be the base of the bow.
The next step is to fold over the two smaller papers to form a circle. Press the circles down in the middle and secure. I secured them with stitching but adhesive would work too.
I layered the smallest circle on the larger one and placed them in the middle of the notched strip. I punched a small scallop circle from patterned paper and put it on top. Then I used a hole punch to go through the center of all the layers and added a brad in the center.
To curl the edges of the bow, I wrapped them around a pencil.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend.
