Flowers Galore

Hello Everyone
Welcome back to my blog. Since it's the first Tuesday of the month, it's time for my Craft-Dee BowZ Tuesday Inspiration post for July.

Believe it or not, my project does not have any stamping (images) this time. But this project definitely calls for a bow (IMHO).

Let me share this cool project with you. 


This is called a Flower Bag Box.

I made this box and gave it to my friend for her birthday, last week.
She was so surprised, and loved it. 
I figured it might look great in her guest bath.

The top was the perfect spot for a bow. 

Here is a closer view of my bow.


My Bow - I used Hug Snug (Yep, by now you know it's my fav bow making material) which is a thinner ribbon (really its a seam binding) and it makes it easy to make a quad loop bow.

Don't forget, the Craft-Dee BowZ bow making tool is the best tool out there
that will aid you in making your bows.
The tool is small , easy to store, easy to use and so portable.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope I have inspired you to make a project other than a card for a change.

I will be back soon. In the meantime stay safe and be well.

July 2020 Craft-Dee BowZ Challenge

Hello Crafters

Welcome to July and to another new month.
July - WOW oh my gosh, 
we are now half done with 2020.

Hope you all are staying safe and well.


Let me start off sharing my card



July ushers in the start of a new
Craft-Dee BowZ challenge 


The July sponsor is 
The Paper Shelter


The Winner will receive:
3 digital images 
Click here to check out the digi's here

I used the Enchanting Butterflies image
on my card.

For my bow - I used some Hug Snug Seam Binding (definitely my fav).
I used my Craft-Dee BowZ tool and it makes bow making so easy. 
Let me show you a closer view of the bow.



For this bow, I made a triple loop bow using white Hug Snug
 that I've colored with Distress Oxide - Worn Lipstick
Then I took another length of the white Hug Snug 
and made a smaller triple loop bow. 
I stacked the smaller white bow on top of the larger bow, 
tied them together and added to to the card.

The great thing about the Craft-Dee BowZ tool 
is that it makes great smaller bows for cards or gift bags
as well as the larger bows to use on regular size gifts



If you are bow challenged - the CDB tool is for you.
The tool is small and makes great bows. 
It's portable and easy to store.
