So for this blog hop, I want to show you one of my favorite tutorials. No more paying for bows when you can make them yourself!!!

DYI GIFT BOWS
by Sandy Hentzel

ITEMS NEEDED:
Featured stamp set is "Please Snow 2014" from MFP Stamp Shop


  • 8.5x11 copier paper 
  • paper trimmer
  • adhesive
  • stamp set
  • stamp block
  • color inks
INSTRUCTIONS: 

 1. Using the stamps, block and ink, randomly stamp the image all over the paper
covering entire area to make your pattern paper background.

2. Cut your paper in strips using the paper trimmer as follows:

  • 3 strips- 10 1/2 x 3/4"
  • 3 strips- 9 1/2 x 3/4"
  • 2 strips- 8 1/2 x 3/4"
  • 1 strip- 3 1/2 x 3/4"

3. Loop one strip into a figure 8 and using adhesive, glue ends together 
in the middle.

Do this for all strips except for the 3 1/2" one. You will make a loop with that piece.



4. Starting with the largest strips, start forming the base of the bow, gluing
each piece down on top of the other.

5. Then going to the next largest (9 1/2) and then the smaller 2 strips (8 1/2), 
keep stacking the strips in top of each other until you form the bow, ending with the
3 1/2 loop in the very center.

6. OPTIONAL: To finish off the bow, punch out an 1 1/2" circle and stamp 
a cute image or sentiment. Adhere to the top loop.

And here is the completed bow. With practice you can make this bow in less
that 5 min. 


Misc. tips:

  • Using copier paper makes it easier to form figure 8 loops, so you want to use a light weight paper.
  • You can use magazine, newspapers and gift wrap to make your bows.
  • Instead of adhesive you can use a stapler to fasten loops together. Score tape is another favorite of mine, especially if the paper is heavier.

Your next stop is 

Here is today's hop line-up in case you get lost along the way.

I hope your enjoyed today's project. I would love if you were a follower. Let me know so I can follow back. Thanks for stopping by,

Fun Friday PL

0

Hello Everyone, and Happy Friday!!! Im so excited to be sharing a layout I actually had time to make lol. I have to say I truly enjoy the concept of Project Life, we all get so busy with work and family that we tend to put our craftiness to the side. Yup I became one of those as soon as I landed my dream job and I completely put all my scrapbook to the side . I remember I use to make elaborate layouts that would take me days if not weeks to put together and when I finally decided to try Project Life I was like WOOHOO!! and now as soon as I get a chance I print out my pictures and put together a layout in less than an hour (sometimes lol). I have come to the realization that my layouts don't have to be elaborate in order to be nice, its the memories that are captured and the journaling. So ladies here is my Fun Friday layout. Simple Easy Fun


For this layout I used Coral PL kit, my cute little Tin Pin is by October Afternoon (Daily Flash)



I hope your enjoyed today's project too. If you have a questions or suggestions, please leave it in the comments.

Christmas in July Scrapbook LO - Traditional

0

Using the title, Decorating the Tree from the Creative Pointe Holiday Titles, I created a one-page layout of decorating both outside and inside Christmas trees for Christmas 2014.  

The frame is created by Sheila Reid over at Pixelscrapper Digital Scrapbooking; and the tag is from misskatecuttables as a daily free file offered a few weeks ago.  I located the font and printed on top mat of the tag. 

I hope your enjoyed today's project too. If you have a questions or suggestions, please leave it in the comments.

July Challenge Reminder

0

Hey kids!  I'm sharing my July challenge project today.  This month the theme is watercolor.  You can create a watercolor background, use watercolor techniques to color an image, or anything you'd like to create using a watercolor effect.  Our sponsor for July is DeeDee Digis

I created the watercolor background.  It was pretty fun to play with the mists and water :-)  I found that cardstock wrinkled up pretty good.  Even tried a thicker cardstock -nope.  So, if you have watercolor paper I think that is your best bet.  I used Gloss paper by Ranger :-)  Love the effect I ended up with!!

Recipe:
Ranger Gloss paper
Glimmer Mists: lemon Zest, Iridescent Gold, Candy Apple Red
DeeDee Digis - Ladybug Hugs
red wire
Glossy Accents - ladybug spots
Black bling
pop dots

Thanks for stopping by today :-)  Come and play along with this fun challenge!  Link up is here.
