Received June's Paper Pumpkin kit? Great! If not, you can still do this project by cutting yourself a square and cutting into the center (but not right to the middle) from each corner. Here is a step-by-step tutorial for creating a bow.
Cut off one of the top "triangle".
Fold the top portion down as shown here:
Step 3: Curl your paper points to make it easier to bring them into the center. Place a glue dot (or a couple) to hold the 4 points in the center of the bow.
Step 4: Flip the bow away from the soon-to-be tails and poke a hole so that you can place the brad through. While you've got the bow flipped, cut your tails as shown.
Step 5: Flip your bow back on top of your tails. Optional, adhere the back of the brad to your tails with a glue dot.
Now you have a bow that you can use to decorate a gift with and all you've used is 1 "pinwheel" square from the kit, a brad and a couple of glue dots. :)
Hope you've enjoyed this quickie tutorial. I'd love to hear your comments!
Until next time, stay crafty!
