Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons

We’re all guilty of it. Every single paper crafter is guilty of paper hoarding! We love our pretty paper and no matter how much we have, we want more! It’s just the nature of the beast. Well I am on a mission to use my stash (to make room for more of course) so this week’s Countdown to Christmas Live@Lunch was all about paper bows.

Paper bows are nothing new but it’s been a while since I’ve made one. When looking for an idea for this weeks video I can across an old instruction sheet and had a light blub moment! Paper bows are easy and fun to make. All you need is some paper, a paper trimmer, and some glue. Best of all, you can make them for any occasion by just switching out the paper.

Paper Bow

To get started you will need some Designer Series Paper (DSP), a paper trimmer, silicon craft sheet, and liquid glue. You can order all the supplies you will need here https://s.tamp.in/_EUNmg

Once you have all your supplies assembled you will need to cut 8 strips of DSP to 5 1/2″ long by 1″ wide and 5 strips of DSP to 4 1/2″ long by 1″ wide. Once you have all your paper strips cut, watch my video tutorial to assemble your paper bow.

I hope you have fun making your own paper bows. Let me know how you did! Happy crafting!
