Bows for any occasion

I love the look of bows on my cards….whether they be bows made of ribbon or paper.  Earlier this month, we discovered how you could make a paper bow using the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board.  In this post, we see how you can create paper bows using a die or a punch.  With the arrival of dies and punches that are able to cut out paper bows, it is easier than ever to add a paper bow embellishment to your creations.  Below are pics of paper bows created using the The Stamps of Life Small Bow Dies, as well as the Fiskars Large Squeeze Punch Bow Tie.  Both of these bows are super sweet, and just slightly different, so you might as well have both the die cut and the punch in your crafting arsenal!
