Bows. Bows. Bows! This happy birthday ensemble is tied up with little bows ... literally. These paper bows are so fun to make, it's hard to stop once you get going. All you need is some pretty patterned paper and the Stampin' Up! Bow Builder Punch.
- This birthday card and coordinating gift box would make a cute gift for a friend or co-worker. Fill the box with a small gift or treat to celebrate the occasion.
- The Pool Party card base is stamped with Pool Party ink using the Watercolor Wash background stamp. For a more subtle effect, I stamped off once on scratch paper before stamping on the card.
- For the happy birthday greeting, I used the Cottage Greetings stamp set and Tangelo Twist ink. This new stamp set features small hand-drawn images plus greetings and sentiments in adorable fonts. (It coordinates with the Cottage Greetings Card Kit - super cute!)
- Bow pieces are punched from the Sweet Li'l Things Designer Series Paper in coordinating colors and patterns to keep it uniform without being too repetitive.
- A simple belly band around the Tiny Treat Box dresses up the box and provides a place to attach ribbon/trim and a greeting.
- The bow on top completes the box and continues the bow theme. Additionally, with the box decorated in this manner, it can easily be opened and closed without ruining the look.
If you like these cutie-patootie little paper bows, you should see what I have up my sleeve for you next.
I'll give you a hint - it's going to be like a bow explosion taking place.
Yep, bows galore. Bow mania. Bow palooza.
And I'm not talking about lots of the same bow either.
We're talking lots of different styles of bows.
All made with the same punch.
I can't wait.
