I was inspired to have a go at making this lovely bow, I almost followed Darcy's instructions on the Paperartsy website, so have a look there to see how to make the blue bow, which is made from copy paper, paint, I used Turguoise, Dusty Teal, Hint of Mint and Pewter, also some stencilling and stamping.
In the second picture I decided to try making the bows in different weights and types of card and paper, all reasonably successful, but I do think you need a lightweight paper/card which is double sided.
Thank you for looking at my blog.
So here are a few bows, the original idea came from a post by Darcy on the Paperartsy Blog, more about this on another post. I did one, bottom left, made from copy paper and painted, stencilled and stamped. The others are all made from different types of card and paper.
I think they are better made from card/paper that is double sided, but this does not need to be very thick I think the maximum weight paper/card would be 120 gsm, the thicker card it is much harder to fold and stick.
