Style Watch: Easy Two Toned Die Cut Bows | Damask Love Blog

 

Hey, hey, hey! It’s no secret that I like bright colors. One of my best friends loves to tell me that I “dress like markers.” It’s kinda true. I’m a big fan of bold colors and I’m not afraid to combine them. I also think that leopard is a neutral, but we’ll save that discussion for another day.

For today’s issue of Style Watch, I’ve taken the bow die trio and dressed them up like markers to create some really cute and very simple two-toned paper bows. I’m a little bit obsessed with these guys and I want to stick them on everything.

As you can see, it’s super easy to assemble these doo-dads. Just two die cuts. Once you’ve done that, simply adhere the patterned paper on top of the solid bow and complete the bow as usual. Easy.

To keep the bright & bold party going, I added a few cute notecards to this ensemble by using the Mini Tri-Fold 1 die…and it just so happens that this die fits perfectly into the 4″ Glassine Envelope, making it easy to create a perfect little stationery set.

  1. Thank you, Amber – I was wondering how this could be achieved – you just saved me a headache figuring it out šŸ˜€

    Love the look of the bold colours – feeling very inspired šŸ™‚

  2. I think I will look into getting this die-cut. I love bows and this is a fantastic idea. I see many colourful two toned bows in my future. šŸ˜€

  3. Absolutely ADORABLE!!! and so EASY. I’ve always had a hard time making a bow. I particularly like those HUGE ones, which I never get right and end up buying somewhere. But these! Oh, I can do this. Thank you. I’ll make them for every gift I make from now on. You are a God-send!!
