Author: Beth Kingston

Materials

  • My Favorite Things Die-Namics Beautiful Bows
  • 8″ foam wreath
  • Maya Road fabric tape stripes – fire red (I used about 1.5 rolls)
  • Xyron Mega Runner
  • Xyron 3/8″ Adhesive Dots
  • Five (5) pieces of coordinating patterned paper (approx. 6×6)
  • Scissors
  • We R Memory Keepers Evolution 
  • Assorted small coordinating embellishments (not shown) – I am partial to flowers and buttons!

Instructions

  • Wrap wreath completely with fabric tape. I cut the tape in to 3’ pieces to make it easier to manage.
  • Use die cutting machine to cut a full set of bows from each piece of patterned paper. This will give you pieces for a large bow and a small bow from each pattern – main bow section, bow base, and center piece.
  • Assemble bows as desired – I swapped the center piece of each bow for a different pattern to add a little extra color
  • Place main bow section pattern side down on your work surface. Use your Xyron Mega Runner to apply adhesive just to the center of the piece, then fold in each end of the bow to the center. Press both edges of the bow in to add some dimension.
  • Lay bow base pattern side up on your work surface and apply adhesive to the center, then adhere the main bow section to the bow base.
  • Place bow center face down on your work surface and apply adhesive to entire piece (can also run through Xyron 1.5” Create-A-Sticker for fuller coverage). Wrap bow center around bow and press to adhere.
    Continue until all bows are complete.
  • Use your Xyron Adhesive Dots to apply bows to wreath. There will be small gaps in between the bows so use your small embellishments to fill in the blank areas.
