Making a Bow with Couture Creations

Have you ever wished you had a bow to place on your package...well never fear because today I am going to share with you how easy it is...so get out your favorite Couture Creations Embossing 
Folders, some nice card stock and a brad.....
To begin cut the following card stock strips using your Couture Creation Precision Trimmer, I used a color core card stock to make my bow with.....
Once you have all your strips cut...punch a hole in both ends using a hole punch or your Handheld Essential paper piercer....
run the strips through your embossing machine using the Couture Creations Moonlit Berries or other Couture Creations folder....
 lightly sand them off with the Couture Creations Sanding Block....
I always line them up so I keep them going ton the brad in the right order...
I start with the smallest, wrap it so the holes match up and place the brad through the holes...making sure the top is on the inside of the loop....I also stick a pencil or something in the loop once the brad is in place to keep it push out the back to place the strips on and to be able to work the loop on easier....
wrap each strip around your thumb...
 and place them on the brad...once you have them all on the brad open the brad up to secure the strips
make sure to carefully twist the loops on the brad to straighten them up and just like that you have a beautiful bow....have fun making them. Hugs Pammejo

    1. just place each piece onto the brad...the pencil helps to hold the brad straight up or you can use a longer piece of wire if you need to...once you get the hang of placing them on the brad it will make sense. Thanks for stopping by.
