Three Sisters it could be anything to do with Easter., a card, a scrap page or a 3-D item, but I really didnt know what I wanted to do for it. Well our grand daughter went home and as I was still thinking about the challenge, I thought I will get the meat out of the freezer for dinner. Wish I had got the meat out first thing this morning. When icecream was taken out last night someone didnt close the door of the freezer properly. Enough said. I now have an empty freezer and will have to shop now to refill it! I was so "not happy Jan" I locked myself away in the office and threatened man and beast with the same fate if they should come anywhere near me till I coolled down. Well I am pleased to say my time was not wasted because this is what I came up with. The chics I saw forever ago on Ann Fitzgerald's site, but I wanted to make a pop out card. It really was super easy to do, and I will post a tutorial for the card in a few days time. I did calm down considerably by the time I had finished the card, but unfortunately I felt the heat rising again once I looked at the EMPTY freezer! Never mind there is always tomorrow, when our next lot of guests arrive. I really would love to hear what you think of my card. I think it is super cute. Bye for now...........

You can use any size dowel the bow in this little Tutorial is rather large for what you would want, but I made it bigger so it was easier to see.
Remember you can use nails too they will work just as well.
Now onto the exciting part:-
1. Cut your ribbon to the length you need (or to be more economical cut it when you have finished the bow there will be less wastage – thanks Kris).
2. Wrap ribbon around dowels/nails like below
3. Pass top ribbon under and out the other side
Now Go and have fun!
Follow the pictures to achieve your 'perfect bow'

The Three Sisters site and under the members freebies I found the template for this adorable post it not holder. I decided to use the flowers from the Punch Bunch Level 1 Hostess set and stamp in versamark all over the cardstock. The rest of the post it note holder is made from bits out of my 'another day' box. I had a scrap of Soft Suede that had been put through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder that I attached and cut around to shape. I also had a scrap of Very Vanilla that had been cut using the Tasteful Trim Die and I layered that across the Soft Suede. At long last I found a home for the scrap of So Safron Striped ribbon that had been living in my another day box for so long still with the buckle attached from my Hodge Podge kit. The owl I stamped is from the sal-a-bration set and I put him on dimensionals after punching him out using the XL Owl Punch, and gave him two mischevious rhinestones in his eyes. I punched a wide oval from So Safron and attached that to the front of the flap. to hold the lid closed I placed a velcro dot. I really love how this holder turned out, and would love to know what you think! Bye for now
