The Bow Maker Die for Paper Crafters

I recently got a chance to play with the Bow Maker Die from The Maker’s Movement.

While I will admit that I was confused for a brief moment on how it worked.

Once I figured out how easy it was to use, I wanted to share this simple project

and tutorial with you.

 

The Bow Maker is a four-piece die set that is deep etched, which makes it so easy to cut through cardstock, thick paper, and even fabric. They are great for greeting cards, birthday cards, scrapbooking, gift tags, and much more fun projects.

I decorated a little jar I found at  Dollar Tree and topped it off with a cute little paper bow.

Materials Used:     (*affiliate link)

Directions:

  1. Die-cut decorative scrapbook paper using the Bow Maker Die.  The dies cut four pieces, two bow loops, a center, and a bow base.
  2. Gently curl the paper on the two bow loops using your fingers or a small round marker to make the paper pliable for bending.
  3. Bend the ends over and glue to the underneath side of the paper using a quick setting glue like Rapid Fuse*.  (you could also use a small glue dot)
  4. Stack and glue the bow loops onto the bow base.
  5. Glue the center around the middle of the bow.
