Perfect bows for your cards

This is one of the holiday cards I made recently.

Notice the perfect bow?  You might think I'm a genius, but in reality, I'm a bit bow-challenged.  During my recent organization, I rediscovered some of my tools, and I'm going to share some of the tools I use every day and some that I found again in some of my posts.

This tool is called the Bow Easy.  Mine was even made in the USA!  You can use this tool to make bows with loops measuring from 3/8" to 1 3/8" - in roughly 1/8" increments.  Since somebody else has already shared a video using this tool, check out how to use it:

A quick google search for "Bow Easy" or "Bow Easy template" will yield lots of results how you can make your own or purchase one.  At $5 a piece, this would make a great stocking stuffer for your scrapbooking friends. 

I'll post more on how I made the background of the card later and show you some more samples.

    Gina K Designs at sells the Bow Easy on her website, and has lots of video demos, too.

  2. Yes! And, she sells two sizes! The "purchase one" link in my next to last paragraph will take you right there.
