Taking a nod from Target, I am starting to put together some Xmas ideas. As I’m between sewing projects at the moment, I decided to try out this tutorial which I’ve had saved for a while in my Evernote. I’m still figuring it out but aren’t these the cutest?
It turns out a Coke ad (top) makes a really great Xmas themed bow! I then experimented (see below) with using thinner strips. Which told me that thicker strips work better. You don’t see the brad as well. The bottom is the thinnest strips but you really see the brad. Lesson learned.
Still, Martha Stewart has some pretty full page color ads. As the poster of the tut said, these are oddly addictive. You are warned. I see more bows in my future, perhaps even tonight!
