Big Bow Embellishments


Don't you just love to add jaw-dropping gorgeous bows to your projects? I do, and I discovered something a little different this week. I wanted to center my image between two large bows for balance, but all of those tails would have been in my way. So what I did was tied my bows using this fabulous 1 1/4 inch wide Silk Burgundy ribbon - then I punched a hole on my cardstock in the area that I wanted the center of my knot to be, and I just pulled the tails through the hole, and taped them to the underside. Not only did this hide my tails, but it also made my bows stand perfectly .

I hope this will inspire you to give it a try!
