Hello Crafty Friends... I have a video tutorial for you all today! I'll be teaching you how to make a seven pointed star bow. I will include the link to download your very own template I used in the video tutorial below. This file is in SVG format especially made for those of you who have an electric/ digital cutter.
I also be doing another giveaway... I will be giving away 3 template sets to 3 lucky individuals. To enter just leave a comment in the comments section of my youtube video. 3 winners will be chosen at random. I'll will choose winners Sunday evening and announce them Monday on my blog.
For this project you will need the following...
7 pt star template
your choice of chipboard, stencil film, or craft plastic (to make stencils)
needle & thread
small template: 42" long and up to 3/8" wide
medium template: 72" long and up to 5/8" wide
large template: 94" long and up to 1" wide
You can download the SVG file for the 7 pt star bow template and cut it out from chipboard , stencil film, or craft plastic.
My test templates I made out of chipboard and they worked great, but I wanted something a little more stable that wouldn't get worn out as quickly.
So, I cut them from stencil film. Perfect... cut perfectly and very flexible!
As a beginner it's best if you start with the biggest template and as you get the hang of the technique work your way down to the smaller ones.
Don't forget I'm giving away sets of these templates and all you have to do is leave a comment on my youtube video.
I am new to doing videos... so, please be kind and leave a nice comment. I don't know much about video making or editing and positive feedback would be encouraging. Thanks & I hope you enjoy!
If you can't see it here click here to view it on youtube.
P.S.- The video does talks about 3 loops around each point to get the look in the picture below. But if you wanted a more fuller or more closed center try 4 or 5 loops around each point. I like putting buttons in my center and that is why I stopped at 3.
And there you have it... SUPER CUTE BOWS!!

HAPPY BOW MAKING!!
