Cardstock Bow

Good morning friends! I am looking forward to what is supposed to be a partly sunny day and 71 degrees...woohoo! Maybe I can get out there and weed again...with the new gloves I got for mother's day, yay for me!

I'm excited to show you a bow I made. The other day I had a gift that I wanted a bow for and realized I didn't have any bows soooo...I went in search of instructions on how to make one. I found instructions on SCS. The instructions called for double sided patterned paper but that is what I wanted so I just used some American Crafts cardstock in a color that matched my wrapping paper (the polka dots make me smile!) and got to work. I gotta tell ya it took me about 15 minutes total to make this bow and I think it looks great!

Well, I think that is it from me today. I hope that you have a warm and sunny day where you are!
