TT-MJ-03

Hello!

When I started planning this tutorial I was totally out of ideas in my mind! Really! I was thinking about it over and over again... And then i saw this wonderful bow on the Internet as a party decoration accent - this was it! I thought it would be nice to provide the png files so You could cut it or develop on Your own.

And then I found that bows became more and more popular in our scrapbooking world. First I saw so many beautiful projects in Jot. magazine! Aggggh! And then I found a few cute bow themed cards in the SC Gallery... I realized that this is a newest trend, so my tutorial won't be anything super new for You Guys (I am jealous that I wasn't clever enough to be the first bringing it!) So here I am: Sharing my bow - tutorial with those of You, who still don't know how to do it :) piece of cake, believe me!

What I'm adding here (i hope it's new) are my .png shapes to cut out and create the perfect little bow! I hope You will be able to go further and experiment with your own bow-shapes. And I hope You will enjoy the tutorial!

Sooooo Let's start!

TO CREATE THE BOW, YOU MIGHT NEED:
patterned paper
cutting machine or scissors
glue
pen
little pearl adhesives as a decoration

WHAT YOU WILL NEED TO DO:
 
1.Let's start with cutting the shape - You can use my .png files to import them in your cutting machine software. Simply trace the object and cut it. If You want to experiment a bit, try to move a few vertexes to give Your bow a different look. You can also resize the shape to get smaller or bigger bows.
Don't worry if You don't have Your own personal cutting machine - scissors are perfect for bows too! Simply draw the shape similar to the one that I provided or print mine and cut it! The effects are great, and still - with Your super talent and scissors You can evolve the shape of Your bow!

2. When the shape is ready You simply need to fold the paper and add some glue here and there the way I have shown in the above few pictures.

3. Some of my bow shapes have this [strange] strip going down from the middle. This strip is there to assist you when glueing/tying your bow [don't forget to add a bit of glue].

4. Now, you have your bow - it is probably a bit flat so what You need to do to add  a little 3d effect here- place the pen inside the two bow wings to create a rounded bow! When it's done You can simply add a pearl on top! Tadaa!

I hope You like the effect! 

You can add Your bows anywhere on your project - I think it works perfect for elegant projects and also for messy ones (my fave)! (pictures 5-8)

Don't forget to share Your projects with us!
