Zutter Bow-it-All V2.0 Video Tutorial – Making Fun Fiber Flower Embellishments

Hi everyone.  I’m back today with another fun Bow-it-All V2.0 Tutorial.  Today we are making something a little different – Fiber Flowers!

We’ve been making gorgeous bows with our Bow-it-All V2.0, but now I’m off to see what else I can use it for.

These gorgeous flowers are so fast and easy to make and they make a great card embellishment, pin or even a hair clip!

I’m sharing my fiber flower tutorial at:
Pursuit of a Functional Home – Pin it Monday Hop #57

Here is my video tutorial.  You’ll be amazed how easy and fast these great fiber flowers come together.

I used a fiber flower as an embellishment on the card below.

I also threaded some Capri Blue Satin with Grosgrain Edge Ribbon through the Spellbinders A Gilded Life Die and tied a perfect little bow with my Bow-it-All Tool.

For this fun fiber flower rosette, I made the fiber flower and created the other layers with some of the ribbons in the RRR May Ribbon Club Assortment.  I show how the rosette was created in the video above.

Not a member yet?  Why not enroll today and begin with the Vintage Patriotic themed May Assortment which contains 9 styles and a total of 17 yards of ribbon and lace.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you like the video today.

Bow-it-All Tutorial * Basic Triple Layer Bows

Happy Mother’s Day everyone!!  

I’m here today with a great Triple Layer Bow Tutorial with the NEW Bow-it-All V2.0 Tool from Zutter. You’re going to LOVE how easy it is to make this great new bow!

Since it’s Mother’s Day, I’ll start out with a card.
I wanted a little smaller bow on this card, so I decided on a double-layer bow instead of a triple layer bow.  It’s made just like the bows in my video tutorial below, but with two layers rather than three.

The bow was created with a piece of 1-1/2″ wide Netting which I trimmed down the middle with my scissors to create netting that is 3/4″ wide.   That gorgeous image is from a collage set called Dragonflies from CobraGraphics on Etsy.  It’s meant for jewelry making, but I just enlarged the image a bit with my PSE program and it works beautifully for cards.  I created the sentiment on my computer.

Now on to the video tutorial.
You are going to be shocked at how easy it is to make these beautiful triple layer bows in any size you want with all the additional peg holes in the new Bow-it-All V2.0.
