For the winner of last Friday's giveaway, please go here.
Hey there Lily Bee fans, Cindy here. Today, I want to share my gift bows project with you. I love to dress up a gift box for any occasion & this year, I plan on dressing up a few of the kids Christmas gifts with handmade gift bows using the wonderful Jingle Collection.
To create your gift bow(s), simply trim nine strips of pattern paper that measure 1/2" or 3/4"; three 10", three 9", two 8" & one 5".
For each strip (except 5" strip), create a loop from each end, stapling together in the center.
Layer & adhere each looped striped using glue gun from bottom up, largest to smallest.
Fold & staple 5" strip, adhere using hot glue to center of bow.
Adorn center of bows with dimensional embellishments such as Lily Bee's Christmas Town Chipboard Stickers.
The strips of these bows are 1/2" wide & each one was adorned with Jingle Mixed Cardstock Stickers & twine.
Thanks for letting me share my creation with you today & hope you are having fun creating this holiday season!
