Welcome to the Beautiful Bows blog hop! If you have arrived her from Jessica's blog, then you are in the right place. If you happen to be here for a visit, you should head on over to the 3 Girl JAM blog. You don't want to miss any of the fun and beautiful projects from the design team!
For my project, I made this card using a couple of different 3 Girl JAM products. The bow is made with the new 3GJ bow maker. I really love how easy it is to use and the different sizes and types of bows that you can create with it. I used the sunflower crinkle ribbon and the chevron harvest border. I also used Heartfelt Creations basket die to make the little basket and Pink by Design's Faith set sentiment "each day is a gift". The green background is a spellbinder die. I really love using the adhesive borders. It helps to make a quick and beautiful project.
So below are some pictures of how I made this cute double bow. I always find it hard to make small bows, well now with the 3GJ bow maker, it makes it a lot easier and prettier!
First I wrapped it around the 2 posts. You can choose the size of bow
by moving the posts either closer or apart.
I wrapped it around one more time to get the two loops
I make the famous ribbon sign by crossing over the two ends
I take the top part and swing it through the bottom and back and bring it back over
here it is in the front
I then tie them together and pull up
this is what it looks like.
This is how my little bow turned out. I trimmed the edges and adhered it to my card. Isn't it just beautiful?!?! I never thought that I could do a beautiful bow, but now I can and I honestly find it easier than using the bow easy! I love how the center is perfect.
