Making a Paper Bow - Tuesday Tips and Techniques

Last year, Paper Bows became a hit in the paper crafting world and they continue to be one of hottest trends today.  You see all different shapes and sizes, colours and mediums for these bows.

The Paper Bows are great to decorate gifts....saves times from having to go and purchase a bow, that ultimately gets thrown out unless of course the recipient recycles their bows and ribbons.

Do you accumulate paper scraps from card making and scrap booking?  Here is a chance to use up those scraps that we store and eventually throw away.

So for those of us who love to paper craft, here is another way to get into your craft space and clean up the scraps.

I have for you today as part of the Tuesday Tips and Technique's video, Part 1 of Paper Bow Making.

This is a sample of a paper bow that we made as part of Make & Takes at Stampin' Up! 2012 Convention.

PS..the Kraft boxes make it an easy way to package your gift.  This one was stamped using Versamark and the Lovely and Lacy stamp set.  You can also decorate with designer series papers and card stock.  The choice is yours and there are so many.

So here is your video on How to Make Paper Bows.

I hope you  enjoy the bow tutorial.  Tune in for Part 2 next week.

Is your paper crafting wish list bigger than your bank account?
Do you live in an area of Canada where you don't have access to a stamping club?


  1. Karen cute little gift box. Love the BG stamping on the kraft box. (kraft is becoming my fav lately). It fits for many occassions. Another great video too. Love to watch them.
