I have some happy news to share. I was asked to join the first ever Design Team for Craft-DeeBowz. It's a neat little tool to help you to tie perfect bows every time. You can make single bows, double loop and multi-loop bows of varying sizes, from tiny to medium size bows. And it REALLY works, it only takes a little practice, and there are tutorial videos on the blog. This is my first project for them.

I used paper, stickers and diecuts from Moxxie's XOXO collection.

I did a double-loop bow using the red dot ribbon and one with the white lace and put them together for the bow I added a pretty pearl pin to top it off.

Here are a few close-ups of the details. I used my Kuretake Zig markers for my "faux stitching".

The red blooms were cut with my ECraft using WorldWin ColorMates paper. Their paper cuts so easily on all die-cutting machines, manual and electronic. I have an ECraft, and Cuttlebug and GrandCaliber and the paper cuts beautifully on all.

I urge you to try to Craft-DeeBowz tool, it really does work. I hope you liked the post and I really appreciate you stopping by. Check back later, I'll have more projects to share.

Gorgeous layout! I so need one of those tools. I waste a lot of ribbon trying to tie perfect bows. Thanks for the inspiration! =)
