The Stampin’ Up Online Extravaganza ends tomorrow (11/28/12,) but there is still time to take advantage of the Be Of Good Cheer (126896) designer series paper.  In addition to using the paper to create your Christmas cards & scrapbooking pages, you can also use it to make your own bows.   

 

STEP 1: Cut eight 1" x 5-1/2", five bow123
1" x 4-1/2" strips of paper, and a 1"
square of paper.

 

 

 

STEP 2: Punch holes in the ends of
all the strips.

 

 

 

 

STEP 3: Slightly curl each strip.

STEP 4: Make a loop with one of
the 4-1/2" strips, lining up the holes
and adhering the ends. Make a
teardrop shape with the rest of the
strips, also lining up the holes and
adhering the ends. Let dry.

 

 

STEP 5: Pair up the teardrop shapes
by size, lining up the holes, then
adhere them together. Let dry.

STEP 6: Assemble the pieces, layering
and adhering the smaller pieces
over the larger; finish by adhering the
loop in the center. For a more secure bow, put a small brad through all the holes to hold the bow together. 

Remember that 1"square you cut out in Step 1? Adhere it to the bottom of the bow to cover the punched holes & the brad.
