BPBS

Along with loving anything PINK, I love ribbon too.  And when BECCA posted her Peg Bow, I knew I had to try to make one too.  I have a Bow Easy and it does make 
bow-making quite quick and easy, but I seem to fumble a lot with it, so I decided to try 

It's like having an extra set of hands!  I have called it the Becca Peg Bow System (hence, BPBS).  Becca of AMAZING PAPER GRACE is an endless source of inspiration and ideas and if you are not a follower, you should be ... you don't know what you are missing!







A BIG thank you, Becca for this amazing idea ... and for all of the ideas that
you so willingly share with your blog readers.  I'm sure I speak for many ...
we really appreciate you and your amazing creations and ideas.

Thanks for stopping by.

~Bonnie~

OMG! Bonnie this is awesome. Becca is just a wonderful sharing person isn't she? Did you and your hubby make this awesome tool? Sadly, I lost my hubby/handiman Nov. 2010 after 33 years. I'm still adjusting to life alone and trying to learn to do things never done. Papercrafting is new to me and I am loving it. What a wonderful escape to another world! Are you considering selling some of these for the less fortunate of us who are all thumbs in the wood world? I would love to buy one from you! Even unpainted, undecorated, and flat! I CAN glue! LOL Anyway, Bonnie, thanks so much for sharing! BTW, I LOVE pink too!

WOW, gorgeous Bonnie! Very nice to look at! And I love how you paid homage to Becca in bling letters!!!

MimiPatty said...

Your rendention of the bow maker is very attractive. You did an excellent job. Did you use the heated rhinestone tool to adhere the pattern? Also, did you put some kind of skid proof tabs on the bottom to keep it from moving when you use it? Lovely job.
