Another Experiment :) Bow maker...

"If you have never tried the bow easy…then you truly are missing out!  It’s simple, it is a great tool to have, and your gunna love how the bow becomes fluffy and perfect every time”.

Well I heard all of this and was never really interested…I do all my own bows without any problem and at any size I want…then I got curious…lol

 I had an old piece of chipboard from the back of a legal note pad. I cut it in three and just measured what typical sizes I normally use for my cards…
I made one (green with brown circles) with 2 slots that makes 5/8th of an inch and 7/8ths of an inch bow size.
Another one (orange with white flowers) with 1 slot that makes 1 ¼ inch bow.
The last one (grey with brown flowers) with one slot makes 1 ½ inch bow.

I cut out the chipboard with a craft knife and then covered it with patterned tape I got from the $1 bin at  Michael’s. the tape I found works well when it’s stretched to keep it bound nice and tight. The ribbon also slides off quite nicely also :) 
Another experiment...went well :)
Have a great day!
