Hello, hello! Anna Wight here with a Sizzix Tutorial for you! Today I’m sharing a stack of yummy cookies I wrapped up in pretty packaging. I will be giving this to my neighbor on Friday, in celebration of the Halloween holiday and the gorgeous season we're enjoying!
Food gifts are so fun to give, and dressing them up to make them extra special is quick and easy. Let me show you how to make this fun, and easy bow!
I chose double sided designer papers by Graphic45. When you die cut your shapes using the French Bow die, fold your paper in half and place the fold at the very edge of the die cut shape where you see there is no blade edge. Place this between a pair of Standard Cutting Pads. You will cut through two layers of your paper at once. The fold you created won't be cut through, and ensures both sides of the die cuts are created at the same time.
Place a glue dot in the center of your bow pieces, and gently adhere the ends of the bow in place at the center. Repeat this with both layers of the bow.
If you use the tails of the bow as they are die cut, the tails will stick out to the sides of your bow. This would be great for dressing up boxes.
I wanted the tails of my bow to drop down a bit, so using my fingers I pressed a second fold in the center of the die cut.
Now when the bow is placed onto the tail ends of the bow, the ends are positioned just how I wanted!
Using another glue dot, I adhered all the layers of the bow in place. I also hand cut some extra banner pieces using left over scraps from the designer paper. I adhered those in place with small glue dots, as well.
Finally, I added a pretty orange button threaded with black and white twine to the center of the bow and tied the entire ensemble in place on top of my cookie stack.
This is one fall festive treat I will enjoy giving!
Thanks so much for joining me today! I hope you found my tutorial inspiring!
