Creations made with the Stampin' Up! Gift Bow Bigz Die

Howdy My Stamping Friends, Happy Thanksgiving Week to you! I've been working on some Christmas Cards for my club meeting and some Stamp-A-Stack cards for next week, but today I'm sharing some fun things I made with the Stampin' Up! Gift Bow Bigz Die.

A few weeks ago, I had the wonderful honor to present at Christina Crawford's team meeting with my friend Sharon Cline. It was so fun chatting with and getting to know these ladies and sharing a few things I've made with the Stampin' Up! Gift Bow Bigz Die.

First, I showed them the regular bow that can be made, using some designer series paper. This bow can be used to create some awesome gift packaging.  Then I showed them some other uses for the bow.

I showed them how they could use the bow die on some greeting cards. And depending on which designer series paper you use for the bow, you can make it feminine or masculine. You can make these cards for any occasion such as Mothers Day, Father's Day, birthdays or any celebration. I've showed you these before, in this post, but here are a few more.

I made these with the Brights Color Collection Designer Series Paper Stack, using Pumpkin Pie and Tempting Turquoise, and I got the sentiments from Perfectly Penned Stamp set.

Next I showed them how to make another card, one that looks like a wrapped gift box. For this one I used the polka dot pattern from the Season of Style Designer Series Paper Stack and the Holly Jolly stamp from Tags 4 You, punched out with the coordinating Label Bracket Punch. What do you think?

Then I explained how I made this super adorable wedding card by running the cut out bow pieces through different embossing folders. It's hard to see but the black bow was run through the Stripes embossing folder and the white bow was run through the retired Lacy Brocade embossing folder. I also embossed the front layer of the card and then attached the bows to the front layer. I embellished with some basic pearls and added a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes cut out with the modern label punch. I LOVE this card!

Next I described how I made this fantastic napkin ring. I used the small bow from the die and made the loop to go around the napkin. Next I used the Holly Jolly stamp from Tags 4 You and the Label Bracket punch to create the sentiment. Finally I used the Artisan Label Punch to cut a piece of the silver glimmer paper. I cut that punched shape in half and attached it to the back of the sentiment, and I attached that whole piece to the front of the bow/loop/napkin ring. Here are two views so you can see the front and the bow/loop/ring part.

I also explained how to make this neat pair of sunglasses that are just perfect for a summertime scrapbook layout. I cut some Brights Color Collection Designer Series Paper Stack with the largest bow on the die. Then I cut some black paper using the small bow on the die. I stuck the ends of the black piece of the bow into the mosaic punch to get the fancy edge of the 'glasses/frame'.  Super simple and you can write some notes about your layout with the White Chalk Marker. Coolio!

I ended the demonstration with a WOW project of Tom the Turkey made with the Gift Bow Bigz Die. I've showed him to you on my facebook page ( ). He wasn't my original idea but he's sooooo super cute that I just couldn't leave him out. I saw him on Facebook from a photo a friend of mine took while she was at a team meeting in Philadelphia so I don't even know the name of the person that actually made him in Philly. Anyway I HAD to give him a try and this is what I ended up with. Isn't he just adorable!! He'll be sitting on my table for the Thanksgiving holiday!
