Paper Bow

Have you seen these before? It is a paper bow that you make from double sided designer paper of your choice. I used paper from SU!'s Dashing collection of paper. I love this paper and I love this bow! They are soooo much easier than I though they would be! Would you like to make your own? Well, then...follow THIS really easy tutorial from SCS! Just one side note though...I did not use brads to anchor my bow layers. I used sticky tape and it is still holding just fine this morning!

Guess what!? I've been tagged by Katie Skiff and Kristi Ferro! I have done this one before but I thought I'd try it again.

7 Facts About Me

* While it is not strange for me to be married to a man named Todd it kinda is when you know that my brother's name is Todd as well. Weird, huh?
* While I love my SU! stamps I am finding that there is a whole world of stamps that are as equally good and that also foster my creativity!
* I have 184 blogs in my Google Reader...crazy, huh?
* Right now I get most of my inspiration from blogs, my Yahoo groups, and SCS's tutorials.
* I truly find that I'm more and more like my mom everyday. Most would find that scary but my mom was a wonderful woman and I miss her everyday!
* My favorite flowers are Lily of the Valley and guess what? I actually grew some in my backyard last year!!! Woohoo!
* Speaking of flowers...Todd makes sure that I have fresh flowers at least 2 of 4 weeks each month...spoiled aren't I?

I am supposed to tag others but since I've done this one before I'll pass on that BUT if you'd like to do this then please feel free and let me know!

I hope I didn't bore you too much! Have a terrific Tuesday everyone!

thanks for posting this. I actually made time to sit down and try it myself. It was so easy and quick to make that I want to make even more.

Love the DSP bow!
Wow! I'm a little envious of twice-monthly flowers!! How delightful! I keep mine in old mason jars, or antique-styled jars after drying ... so a lot of my bookcase shelves include jars of flowers!

Happy day!
