Hello everyone! Have you had the chance to see the cutest Ribbon Cutting set by Lia? It’s a perfect little die that cuts adorable bows to dress up your crafty projects!
The finished bow measures about 1 inch wide and 3 inches long and is quite dimensional. I’ve cut the ones I’m sharing today out of cardstock, but these can also be cut from thin felt, vellum, patterned paper and more (be sure to visit the product page where you can find additional examples of how this die can be used).
When cutting bows out of cardstock it’s best to use not a very thick card. If you use thick cardstock I recommend you shape the loops of your bow with your fingers to prevent cardstock fibers from breaking. You can also spritz your die cut with water to make sure the cardstock won’t crack.
Watch my video below or on Hero Arts Youtube channel for more tips and tricks when working with this die:
