How To Make A Paper Bow Using Card Stock (Video)

Today’s video is on how to make paper bows using card stock. A special thanks to Dawn from Dawn’s Stamping Thoughts. I learned this technique from watching her on YouTube. Be sure to check out her blog as she is amazing! I made a couple of modifications to her technique and wanted to share with you!



These Christmas bows were made using double sided card stock. I love this idea and plan to make bows for every occasion!



For the blue bow, I used the Swiss Dot folder and my Cuttlebug. I can’t wait to try more of my folders. The lavender bow is stamped using a background swirl stamp. Too much fun! Please scroll down to watch the video.

Wow!!!! Thank you for sharing this. Now we can coordinate these bows with the cut-outs from Cricut with the same paper!!! I use tons of Cricut cuts on my gift wrappings.

Nadia: What a great idea! We can even match to our Cricut boxes.

TY for posting this video tutorial, Linda. I love coordinating papers, colors, and textures when I make and wrap gifts, and your and Dawn's technique is right up my alley.

Thank you so much for sharing your amazing talent and beautiful pieces of art with us. I am appreciative of and grateful for all of your hard work, and super anxious to see what you'll come up with next!

(BTW, your glitter paint tutorial was a lifesaver for me! Now I can have the glitter I adore without the mess I despise!)

Linda Kaiser said...

AnneMaflan: You are so welcome and thanks so much for the kind words! I love glitter too, but hate the mess so I use the glitter paste a lot!

Thanks again!

Oh WOW!!! I would never have thought to make bows like this, but why not? Yours have turned out absolutely perfectly. Thanks so much for sharing! (I love the idea of embossing the paper first too!)
