Happy Tutorial Tuesday!
We have a fun tut today from Design Team Member Kim Jeffress. Kim created these SUPER cute bow ties for those fun Easter candy treats you get on a stick. AdorAble!
BOW TIES
1 Start with your choice of Core’dinations cardstock (Kim used My Mind’s Eye Core Impressions), Sand it Gadget and  a Dust buddy.
2 On a piece of scrap 12 inch cardstock draw this design- basically think of it as two fish kissing. Mine is approx 2 inches wide.
3 Cut it out and then trace around it onto your core cardstock and cut out.
4 Using your sanding block sand the embossed pattern of your cardstock. Remember to wipe off the excess dust with your dust buddy.
5 Take your scissors and cut a slit in the indented end (cut half way through), now turn your cardstock 180 degrees and repeat at the other end but make sure it’s on the opposite side.
6 Now comes the tricky part, twist your cardstock over and join each slit cut into the cardstock
7 You should now have something that looks like this.
8 Push down on the centre of the loop as shown.
9 Staple through all the layers to hold it together.
10 Cut a strip approx 1 inch wide of a coordinating pattern paperand wrap around the middle of your bow and glue into place.
11 Now take your chocolate bunny on a stick and using strong adhesive, adhere the back of your bow to the stick as shown. Allow to dry.
12 Your bunny is complete
CUTE!
