Big Paper Bow Card


I just wanted to see if I could make a big paper bow. I have a crush on bows these days, but I don't always have the ribbons I need. But I do have papers!


So I made this bow using a patterned paper from Little Yellow Bicycle (Saturdays collection) and used scraps from the same collection for the background. The trick to make it look right, was to prefold some of the wrinkles, and to snip of some ends (I learned this from looking at DS10 when he makes his 3D paper model planes *lol).



Green Cardstock: Bazill. Alpha: SEI


"God jul" means Merry Christmas in Norwegian, so this is a card for the upcoming season. But I know I want to do more bow cards later - I have plenty of scraps (and new sheets) to use.


What would be your favourite pattern and colors on a bow card?
