Super Easy Paper Bow

A couple of weeks ago I posted a decorated a pizza box with a bow as a part of a project I was working on. Afterwards, I received requests to show how I made the bow. And that is exactly what I am bringing you today.

I made three different sizes. There is no one way how to shape these bows. Once you know how to make the basic loop you can use as many as you wish in one bow.

A general rule is you make 1-4 loops in 3 different sizes and then you stack them on top of each other. The loops hold together with a brad or glue or you can use a thread and needle.

Here are the measurements for the 3 bows featured in my video tutorial below:

The gummy bears paper:
3 strips of 4" x 3/8", 2 strips of 3" x 3/8", 1 strip of 2" x 3/8", 1 strip of 1" x 3/8" for the middle loop

The rainbow paper:
3 strips of 12" x 1", 2 strips of 11" x 1", 1 strip of 10" x 1", 1 strip of 4 1/2" x 1" for the middle loop

The flower paper:
4 strips of 11" x 3/4", 2 strips of 10" x 3/4", 2 strips of 9" x 3.4", 1 strip of 3" x 3/4" for the middle loop

Watch the video and make the bow with me! Tag Crafting with Angels on your socials if you share your bows, I'd love to see them. Give me a thumb up on youtube if you enjoyed my tutorial.

Simple Messages with Well Said Bundle

Hello and welcome to another round of Stamping Around the World blog hop. Every month the ten of us are bringing you an exclusive tutorial bundle (scroll down to the bottom of the post for more details) and every month we run a blog hop to show you additional projects made with the featured products. 

In this month tutorial, I created a birthday gift card holder made with Well Said Bundle. Today I made two additional cards for different occasions. 

I love to use embossing folders because they give you beautiful, effortless backgrounds. I really like my newest addition to my collection - country floral dynamic textured impressions embossing folder. Do you want to hear something exciting about it? It is one of the Sale-a-Bration items and this awesome promotion is still on! It will be all gone at the end of March! So don't hesitate and take advantage of this great sale. 

And don't forget, if you spent £46 in my store, not only you can choose a Sale-a-Bration item for free but I will also send you this month, awesome and exclusive, tutorial bundle (you can scroll for project teasers to the end of this post).

This blog hop is tied to the tutorial bundle, so if you get that this hop will give you additional project ideas with the featured products. It's a win-win however you look at it!

Get inspired by the other designers on this hop. Here is a choice to make - left or right? It doesn't really matter, go left to see a project of talented Alejandra Gomez or go right to check a post prepared by gifted Stefanie Pletscher. Or choose any other name from the roll call list. In any case, make the full loop and enjoy all the post on this hop.

Kre8tors are saying Bye to Sale-a-Bration

Hello and welcome to our hopping group. This month we are saying bye bye to Sale-a-Bration. March is its final month. This year Sale-a-Bration has been full of nice surprises. Three product releases and first time ever in the history of Stampin' Up!® there are coordinating framelits for some of the sets. And there is only one month left of it all!

But do you know what else is coming to its end? The 2017-2019 In Colours, Powder Pink, Lemon Lime Twist, Tranquil Tide, Berry Burst and Fresh Fig. Which one will you miss the most? My favourite is the lemon-lime twist but I really like all these colours. So I decided to use them for my project.

I made a set of small cards (whisper white base 6" x 3", scored at 3") that fit into a pizza box. These boxes are part of the 3rd Sale-a-Bration release so available for free with a qualifying order. 

It's a fast project with the help of stamparatus, see it yourself in my short video.

I hope you enjoyed my little cards in a box and you are ready to hop to another blog. Either click on the "Next" image below to see what talented Cheryl Taylor came up with or choose a crafter by name from the list below. 

Scroll a little lower to see the full list of the products I used to create my project. With every £45 spent you qualify for a Sale-a-Bration item and this month tutorial bundle.
