Bows, Boxes & Angels

Have you discovered the versatility of the Gift Bow Bigz die (#129977) yet? 

Not only is it fantastic for making a wide variety of Bows useful in gift wrapping, decorating and embellishing, there are a number of other creative uses. 


The paper bows can be sponged, dry embossed, and made from patterned paper to allow you to use for all occasions. You can make them into "Bow Ties " for the boys or dress them up with glitter and ribbons - just whatever your imagination dictates. 

I saw this lovely project on-line somewhere and I added my own take to it. 
The boxes are simple to make in a variety of sizes - you can use a full A4 sheet of card a half A4 sheet or any combination of measurements.



I made quite a few boxes with matching cards by stamping the card and boxes in similar designs.


And you can make coordinating Christmas Ornaments using the "Festive Flurry Bundle" of stamps and matching framelits (w #133284). Remember you save 15% by purchasing a bundle!

I mentioned Bows, Boxes and Angels in the post heading and here is my take on the angels that can be made from the Gift Bow die.


I love these little angels and I have them hanging on my Christmas tree this year, along with some lovely doves and other ornaments I made. It is fun to do and rather satisfying to have the tree decorated with items I've made. These little ladies were very popular at the Old Bus Depot Craft Markets and they make a lovely embellishment on gifts for those special people in your life.

Until Next Time

Stay Crafty
