Father’s Day Card Using the Mini Bowdabra

We are pleased to announce that in their latest issue, CardMaker Magazine listed the Bowdabra and the Mini Bowdabra as their “Favorite Find” for cardmaking! dad_12-150x150In honor of such a stellar award and recognition, we would like to demonstrate how easy it is to use Bowdabra Products in cardmaking. We created a Father’s Day Card embellished with bold origami rice paper and completed the card by using the Mini Bowdabra to create a masculine bow accent.

Begin by creating your card design. We added vertical strips of masculine origami rice paper along with horizontal blue cardstock strips. We added brown grosgrain along the bottom and picot bobbin ribbon along the top and bottom. “DAD” lettering was added across the top and a “World’s Best Dad” button with brown grosgrain and picot bobbin ribbon tails was placed on the side.

To make the Mini Bowdabra Loopy Bow:

1. Cut an 18” piece of Bowdabra Bow Wire and fold it in half and lay it into the Mini Bowdabra. Fold the ends under the Mini Bowdabra to keep it out of the way.

2. Next, insert the end of the picot ribbon into the Mini Bowdabra.
