Stampin' Up! Owl Occasions and Faux Bow Mini-tutorial!


Another cute card I created for my recent workshops I want to share with you using the "Owl Occasions" stamp set and the "Snow Festival" Designer Paper! The stamped snowflakes around the owl are from the "Confetti" stamp set. The present, the branch, and the santa hat are included in "Owl Occasions" along with the owl, of course!


I also used the Primrose Petals 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon that is still on special for a couple of more days! Any $40 order will let you choose your choice of 5 In-Colors of this ribbon: Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple, Gumball Green, Midnight Muse, or Summer Starfruit! Contact me with your order before Midnight, September 30th to take advantage of this great Stampin' Up! special!

With this card I have been teaching a fun "faux bow" technique:

Step 1: Tie a length of ribbon (in this case about 9-10 inches) around the 2 Way Glue Pen bottle as shown below. Tie a double knot tightly.

Step 2: Slide the tied ribbon off the bottle. Your ribbon will look like this:

Bow 2

Step 3: Use your Craft Scissors to snip the loop in the middle. Snip the ribbon at an angle to make it pretty.

  Bow 3

Step 4: Your "faux bow" is now ready to attach to your card with SNAIL or Glue Dots. Tighten the long ends of the ribbon before attaching to card front if you need a little more length to reach around to the back side of the card layer.

Hope you've enjoyed today's little mini tutorial!

Until tomorrow, have a Stampingrox! Day!
