paper bow tutorial and printable template

Paper bows are a hot trend right now in the craft industry.  Remember this card featuring Anna Griffin pre-made paper bow embellishments?

Sometimes I don't have a pre-made bow to match my papers or I don't feel like hitting the store to buy one, so I just make my own.  CLICK HERE to go to the Scrapbook and Cards Today magazine blog for a free printable template and tutorial on how to make your own paper bows!

P.S. Today is the last day to register for my Multi-Photo Solutions workshop over at Big Picture Classes. It's not too late to jump in--you have until 10 pm PDT!

Thank you so much for sharing the template to this cute paper bow. I used the template on a card and it was just the right touch.

I would love to know how you made this card with the cut outs. I have searched and would love a tutorial on it. Can you direct me to it?

I downloaded your bow template several years ago. I wanted to stop back by and tell you that your templates saved the day for my son on the evening of his Winter Band Conert performance. At the last minute, we could not find his bone tie. I used your template, a sheet of black craft foam, and some ribbon and made an emergency bow tie. He was able to play in the concert. Thank you for sharing your beautiful paper creations.
