Decorative Layered Bows

Today I am sharing more bows!  These have decorative layers built in with the files.  If you do not like the leaf or snowflakes within the layers, you can use the "releases compound path" within the software to remove them.  These bows can be sized to fit your needs and they are all compatible with the 8x12 and 12x12 mats.


Here is the tutorial:
1.  Cut out the bow pieces.  Adhere the mat pieces in the center of the larger bow pieces as shown.  (Do not place adhesive on the bottoms of the bow pieces, make sure you have enough to curl up).
2.  Turn the main bow piece over and place adhesive on each of the four tabs.  Adhere one of the tabs to the center, lining up the bow curve. Continue adhering the tabs pieces to the center.
3.  Turn the box back over, it will look like this now.
4.  Create a bow shape using the smaller bow piece.
5.  Turn it over and it will look like this now.
6.  Adhere the smaller bow to the center of the larger bow.
7.  Adhere the bow base to the back of the bows.
8.  Turn the bow over (right side up).  Curl your center piece to form a loop and adhere the ends to secure in place and adhere the loop to the center of the bow.  Curl the ends of the bow base up slightly to finish.
