Easy Wired Bow Tutorial using a Paper Punch…!!

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Easy Wired Bow Tutorial using a Paper Punch…!!

Well I had great plans to show you all the new DSP papers in today’s video, but at the time of filming (which was only at the weekend just gone) I suddenly realised that I’d completely forgotten to order the Painted Autumn DSP and it is probably only due to arrive today. That would have meant that I’d have been missing a pack, and you know that I like to do things properly! So you’ll see it next week sometime!

But I also have on my list of ‘videos to film and show’ a wired ribbon bow. Many years ago I used to make giant wired ribbon bows on swags and boughs for Christmas and it’s been nice to revisit the same type of bow, albeit on a smaller scale.

In the video I mention that Mum and Dad still use a couple of the boughs I made for them, but we’ve hunted through all our photos to try and see if there’s a snapshot of either, and typically not! But we had a nice trip down memory lane looking at Christmases gone by.

I also want to say a huge thank you to everyone who’s shared and commented on Wednesday’s tip video. It’s always a little scary to try something new, but it’s brilliant to receive good feedback!

Anyway, enjoy the video!

    Thanks for sharing how to Sam. I got a Bowdabra at my Michael’s years ago, not sure if they still sell them, but they might.
