Step by Step: 3D Gift Bow
Claire Newcombe of Creative Makings demonstrates how to construct the stunning and versatile 3D Gift Bow from the Creative Dies Plus Gift Box Collection.
Step 1: Die cut the elements to the bow. It’s recommended to use a light weight card stock to allow easy manipulation.
Step 2: Gently shape and curl each of the arms on the star shape. The paper will hold the curled shape.
Step 3: Add adhesive to the end of two opposite arms at a time. Bring the ends to the centre and hold until adhesive holds. Continue working around the die cut bringing the arms of the bow into the centre. Ensure that each of the loops remain 3D and not crushed.
Step 4: Adhere either the stitched die cut circle or die cut button from the set to the centre of the 3D bow.
Step 5: Layer and adhere the two banners from the set and cut in half.
Step 6: Add adhesive to the ends of the banners and adhere to the reverse of the bow.
