Hello, Memory Bound friends!
Need a fun little project to cure the winter blahs? Look no further than these adorable bows Diana made using her We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board! This wonderful tool enables you to make envelopes in all sizes, but who knew you could use it to make cute bows for your paper crafting projects? This is a great way to get even more from this fabulous tool AND use up your paper scraps!
Instructions for Bows Using the
We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board
For each size of bow, center the ends of the paper strip under the notch punch and punch. Then cut notches along edges as stated below. Curl center "bow" parts toward back center and fold bow "tails" out flat under bow. Apply adhesive to center underneath. Bring bow to center and adhere. Embellish as desired.
Cut a 1.5x10" strip of paper (double-sided looks best). On long edge, notch at 2.5" and 5". Then flip the paper and notch at 2.5." Repeat on the other long edge.
Cut a 1x10" strip of paper. Notch at 2" and 5". Flip and notch at 2". Repeat on the other long edge.
Cut a 1x7" strip of paper. Notch at 1.5" and 3.5". Flip and notch at 1.5". Repeat on the other long edge.
Thanks, Diana, for sharing this great idea and so many beautiful samples! Stop in to see Diana's bows and pick up an Envelope Punch Board ($19.99) if you don't already have one. Then you'll be all set for some fun paper crafting during the next snowstorm... expected this weekend! :)
Happy bow making, crafty friends!
