Origami paper bow
Here is a simple pretty little card I created highlighted by a Origami paper bow. My card was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest. I set out to find a tutorial to teach me how to make the bows and found many but oh! how I struggled to get it right. I ended up needing three different tutorials on U tube to get me through it. I finally got it and now feel they are really easy to make! heehee isn't it funny how that works sometimes? : )
This tutorial and this tutorial were ones that I used along with a Japanese tutorial. The Japanese tutorial link is not working so I will not share it here but hopefully this will be enough if you choose to make some of these darling little paper bows.
My bow is created from a lightweight paper - not origami paper.
I added some embossing on the top part of the card and a simple sentiment for a simply sweet card. Once I got started making these bows I found it hard to stop LOL I ended up making a dozen or more bows in different colors. I created card fronts similar to this one only I left the sentiment off. I set them aside in my card box for future use where, depending on what the occasion, I can pull one out - add the sentiment I need and in just minutes I will have a card ready to go. : )
That's it for today : ) Please see THIS POST for details of how you could be selected to win a FREE card in my March 17th drawing.
Have a great day!!
