Bows Tutorial w/ Moxxie

I have a fun little tutorial today.
I used the super cute Happy Pawlidays line from Moxxie.
(Enter to WIN it Here.)

to make these 2 bows:

I started with 16- 1/2inch strips of pp
4- 10 inches long
3- 9 inches
3- 8 inches
3- 7 inches
3- 6 inches
& 1 strip 3 inches long and 3/4 inches wide

Then take one of the longest strips, I want the stripes to show, so I turn it over and take one end to fold into the middle like this and glue it:

Then you take the other end and fold it into the middle for a figure 8, I glued all of mine but you could use staples:

After you have all of your strips (except the 3/4 inch one) glued you start layering them and gluing the middles together:

My bow got really full before I used all of the strips, so I just started another one. To finish you take the 3/4 inch strip, glue it into a circle and then add it to the center. For the smaller bow I just cut the center strip to a shorter length and trimmed it down a bit in width. I didn't measure it. And here is another look at what I ended up with:

Have fun!
