I have just returned from the Midwest Scrapbook Expo in Indianapolis. We had a very busy two days and enjoyed meeting lots of new people. I had so many requests for the directions to the paper bow and wanted to post the directions ASAP. The original idea was from a presentation at convention by fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator, Deb Valder. This is a great project for using up all your scrapbooking scraps!
STEP 1: Cut your strips of paper. For this bow, I used 8 strips of 1" x 7", 8 strips of 1" x 6", and 1 strip of 1" x 4".
Step 2: Fold and adhere all of the 1" x 7" and 1" x 6" strips according to photo below. You'll need to overlap them at an angle.
Step 3: Attach 4 loops together to make a layer of the bow. I used staples in my example.
Step 4: Stack the layers together using pop-up glue dots between each layer.
Step 5: Make a loop from the 1" x 4" strip and adhere to the center of the bow with a glue dot.
Enjoy your adventures in bow-making!
