 Today's challenge is to make a DIY Bow. (If you prefer, you could make a Birthday Bow! That way you could use it year round!)
Here is a link to Sandy's Tutorial on MFPSpeedyTV.

Hi everyone, Sandy here and I want to thank you for hopping along. So here is my bow that I did for this tutorial. I have been making these for years! For step by step pictures of this bow, please check out the link right above for my tutorial. Hope you play along!


Misc. tips:
  • Using copier paper makes it easier to form figure 8 loops, so you want to use a light weight paper.
  • You can use magazine, newspapers and gift wrap to make your bows.
  • Instead of adhesive you can use a stapler to fasten loops together. Score tape is another favorite of mine, especially if the paper is heavier.
Please visit these DT members' blogs for more samples


Hope this tutorial inspires you creative bow making skills!
See you for my next project on the 30th!

Building Block Graduation Card

Hello, everyone! Melissa here on to share a "building block" style card with you. I made this one graduation themed, since there are a ton of graduations going on right now. Hope you enjoy this card, and are inspired to try it out yourself. Here is the tutorial I followed from Split Coast Stampers. To make it easier, I will give you all the measurements, here. It looks harder than it is, I promise. Start with a piece of cardstock in your desired color that is 5.5 x 10.5. Put the 10.5 inch side along the top of your score board or paper trimmer, and score at 3.5 inches and 7 inches. Fold the first score line in a mountain fold, and the second in a valley fold. You should end up with a "z" fold card. The next part can get a bit tricky, so make sure you watch the video to fully understand what I am about to explain. On the back side of the "valley" fold, take a ruler and pencil and mark these measurements: 3/8 1 3/8 1 5/8 2 5/8 2 7/8 3 7/8
