Paper Bow Tie - How To...

Forget the fancy dies and punch boards you can make a simple paper bow with just the standard tools any card maker or paper crafter has in their tool kit.  A trimmer, scoring board and bone folder.

1. Trim patterned paper to measure 14 x 6 cm.
2.  Score and concertina fold along the longest side at 1 cm intervals.
3.  Trim a small strip of paper 1 cm wide and wrap around the centre of the bow securing with strong glue.

Use to decorate cards and gift wrapping.

  1. Neat card indeed Vicky. Was the shaped mat cut freehand too? Those patterned papers are delicious.

  2. No I used a die for the mat, a Stampin Up I've had for years, and I got a taster pack of those papers on eBay, one of each design, 16 sheets for around £3.

  3. Great card, love the combo of papers.
