I-Magine That!

We're excited to bring to you our 2nd installment of our
I-Magine That! feature.

Today one of our designers, Ro Phillipsen, will be sharing an
awesome photo tutorial with you


I love bows! I always use bows on my Projects because I think they

add an extra charm and beauty to my design.

I use different types of bows, from ribbon, and several models of paper!

So, today I would like to share with you how to make a beautiful paper bow for your Projects.

It's very easy, let's go!

Step 1 - Cut 4 strip of paper measuring 1 x 6 inch.

Step 2 - Fold each strip in half.

Step 3 - Fold the half of each strip to the opposite, and then adhere the end the backside of the loop where they meet.

Notice in the picture.

Step 4 - Do the same to all strips and this is what they should look like when you are done.

Step 5 - Glue one piece behind the other.

Step 6 - And now glue the two pieces together, like the image.

And below I would like to share two examples where I used the bow, I just taught.

The first one, a colorful and cheerful layout where the bow matched perfectly!

And second one, a Spring Card, with the cute bow.

Thank you so much Rosangela for this fabulous tutorial!
