Today's card is for the IBS February Blog Hop Challenge - Bows. Joanna has a great video on how to create four different bows. I made the triple loop one which is featured last in the video.
I definitely recommend watching the video. I am severely bow-challenged and cannot believe I made this gorgeous triple-loop bow.
As I do not have a wooden block with dowels (though Wolfgang said he will make me one) like Joanna used in the video, I searched for something in the house that I could substitute. You will not believe what I used:
Yes, the knife block from my kitchen! I removed four of the knives and used the two that you see in the picture. Easy Peasy--just move the knives to create different sized bows. Wolfgang will probably never make the bow maker now!
Some details: My card was inspired by this card, though I did not follow the tutorial for it. I created the fan with a single strip of DSP cut at 3 1/4 x 12 and scored every 1/2 inch. The card is a standard 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.
Supplies used: Concord Crush and Pink Pirouette CS and Ink, Lap of Luxury and Patterns Love DSP, SB HC Timeless Amour Dies, EKSuccess Corner Punch, MS Border Punch, IBS Shabby Pink Flower, May Arts Pink Silk Ribbon, ZVA Pearls, and IBS Just Because Stamp Set.
