Double loop 3d bow tutorial

Hello, friends!

Today I have another 3D Bow tutorial using the 3D Bows cartridge that is exclusive to the Cricut Craft Room. Now a few people wanted to know if they can transfer this cartridge to their Gypsy. From what I understand that capability will be possible, but the CCR is not quite there yet. However, at some point in the near future it will be. If you guys hear anything different or things change be sure to let me know!


I used Close To My Heart cardstock and patterned paper.
Today's bow tutorial will be the double looped, red one above.

This bow was cut out at 4".
This is the shift cut.
I adhered the two layers together.
Turn over the cut so it is face down. Add a little bit of glue to the end of one of the loops like in the picture above.
Then fold it to the center.
Repeat the process with the opposite corner.
again..
and again.
Then take the center piece and wrap it around the center.
This is what is will look like from behind.
Here is the bow's tail.
Glue it to the backside of the bow.
This is the end result!
Thanks for stopping by. See you guys back here tomorrow with another tutorial!


November Specials:

November stamp of the month





Holiday Wishes stamp set that is only $5 with a $25 stamp purchase.

When you place a minimum order of $25 in My Acrylix® stamp set starting today (until November 30th), you can purchase a new D-size Holiday Wishes stamp set for only $5 (Stamp of the Month, K-size customized name stamps, Cricut® Art Philosophy collection, and Workshops on the Go™ kits do not count toward a qualifying purchase.)! That’s significant savings off the full retail value of $17.95 US / $19.95 CAN. And here’s a bonus: many of the images in the set coordinate with our Cricut® Art Philosophy cartridge for added cutting and stamping fun! 

So to break it down, 
-If you spend $50 you get the November stamp of the month (retails price of $17.95) for $5.
-If you spend $25 in stamps, you get the Holidays Wishes stamp set (retail price $17.95) for $5 (Stamp of the Month, K-size customized name stamps, Cricut® Art Philosophy collection, and Workshops on the Go™ kits do not count toward a qualifying purchase.)!
-These two offers can be combined. For example, if you spend $25 in stamps and an additional $25 on anything else in the catalog you will get both stamp sets for a total of $10 ($5 per set). 
You save $25.90! Which means the stamps practically pay for themselves!

*note* You MUST add discounted stamps to shopping cart when prompted by the system during checkout. Stamps cannot be added after the sale is complete and finalized. Also, adding the stamps to your cart BEFORE being prompted by this system will result in being charged full price for promotional stamps. 


Have a TERRIFIC Tuesday!

You are a great bow maker....they turned out really pretty...I guess I know who's going to have beautiful packages this Christmas....

Peg said...

Very pretty bow, they look easy enough and they can really dress up a package and they won't look like every other package under the tree!

SallyP said...

Thank for your tutorials on the bows. They are so cute and I can't wait to get started making them for my gifts!

Ann said...

DO YOU HAVE TO BUY THE $9.99 DOWNLOAD IN ORDER TO USE AND CUT THE BOWS? I AM A LITTLE CONFUSED ABOUT CCR. COULD YOU PLEASE EXPLAIN IN A FUTURE POST. THANKS.

EmsCraftyMomma said...

I was wondering if you could do a tutorial on how to cut fabric with your cirut. Its something I've always wanted to try and I've tried (and failed) with other people's tutorials and I just want to know the right way. Thanks!

suzyQ2 said...

Thanks for the tutorial! If you need longer matching brads, just get utility brads and use paint pens or acrilic paint to match. I tried to make an order, but the Stamp of the Month show up full price in the shopping cart.
