How to make a bow with envelope punch board
Bows, bows and more bows!! Here is how to make these beauties with the envelope punch board!
You will need three pieces of paper of your choice, 1 by 8 inch, 1 by 5 inch and a thin little piece for the middle, 1/4 by 2 inches is perfectly sufficient (not too thick of a paper please and is will start to crack as you will fold it).
Take the short 1 inch paper, line it up with 2.5 inch mark and punch. Flip it over and do the same thing on the other side.
Now you can punch out both ends.
This is what you should have.
Now take the longer 1 inch paper and line it up with 4 inch mark and punch. Flip it over and do the same thing on the other side.
Take one of the ends and line it up half way inside the little punch hole. (see the picture). Punch and flip and to the same thing on the other side.
This is what you should have right now. Got it? Good.
It definitely helps to use a pencil and curve the paper a little bit....
Take both ends and flip them under and glue them with a glue dot. You can now use your thin 1/4 inch piece of paper to wrap it in the middle of the bow.
Attach the bow to the bottom part and voila, you are done!
