Origami Bow Present

Welcome to August to the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club August Christmas Challenge! You’ll need to be Fan Club member but that’s easy…just click the blue link to find out how. Bet you’re wondering what the challenge theme is..I’d love to tell you but you’ll have to go see for yourself.

I remembered an origami bow I made several years ago & thought I’d make another for this card. After I found the instructions, (the original site I used has disappeared, but HERE‘s another) I had to practice a bit to remember how it’s done. I stamped the Palm Bg using a Kaliedacolor greens ink pad all over a piece of lightweight card stock, measuring 4″ square. I’ll warn you, it’s harder to fold when you use anything heavier than 24lb paper. You can make these as big or as small as you’d like..you just need to start w/ a square. I used a fine tip red marker to add the berries on the stamped bg. Then I folded the bow. The present was die cut & I used an embossing folder that was half snowflakes, half dots w/ a blank strip in the center. The greeting tag & a die cut red berry branch finished it.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
