Design Team Inspiration with Aphra!!

Hello my scrappy friends! Glad you've stopped by today because I have a quick and easy tutorial for you. We'll be making the bow on this card from the June gallery.

Are you ready? Ok. Here we go.

Step One: Cut a 1" x 5" strip of double-sided patterned paper. Notch both ends of the strip and cut in half.

Step Two: Add notched strips to your project.

Step Three: Cut a 1" x 8" strip of paper and create a loop.

Step Four: Place a glue dot on the insdie and press together to create a figure eight.

Step Five: Use a scrap of 1" x 2" paper from one of previous strips and add it to the center of figure eight with reverse pattern showing. Wrap around the back and adhere.

Step Six: Attach to your project and embellish.

Hope you've enjoyed this easy tutorial. If you create a bow for your projects, please share it with us on our Facebook page. We'll stop by to ooohhh!!! and ahhhh!!! over it and leave you some love. Have a great day!
