Loopy bows

At Christmas time, I am so facinated with the ribbons that are loopy... one inside another. I never by them to use. I just look at them and try to figure out WHO even thought of this? Then curiousity struck and I attempted to make my own! I couldn't just make bows. I had other things to complete.. so I put a loopy bow on a box that is part of a birthday present!


I kept everything simple...


I ran my bone folder over the cardstock to break the fibers in the paper - however didn't th ink of this until I was starting to adhere my loops!


I made a belly band, that I attached the tag to ... it was fun. I will try more again. I used the #2Box, from SU! in as my base.  I think its adorable!
