Making Gift Bows!

Knotty & Nice Retailer Ad


I've been making some bows with the NEW Notty Gift Set dies.  They are so easy to put together and you can customize them with whatever paper you want.

There's actually four bows in the set, but one three of them were available when I created this blog post....see all the bows here.


I made a quick video of how the most of the bows go together (I'm missing one), so you can watch that below, or here's a FREE handout to help you assemble them.

And like always, you get 20% off your entire order at when you use coupon code "ERIN".

Also, the holiday issue of Make It magazine is available here, or check it out below...and it's FREE!!!  There's so many great projects in there!!

And now on to Christmas!

Christmas Mantel

Well, Thanksgiving is now behind us and my Christmas decor is up! And now it's time for me to start thinking about Christmas cards!  I've had so much fun looking at the card designs at Minted.  I love that they are designed by a community of independent designers and that they have so many great shapes beyond the traditional rectangle.  Oh, an they also have a "find it fast" feature where you upload your photo and see it in different handy!!

Here's a few of my favorite designs...please help me decide which one to choose!!! I love the family ones, but since we just adopted a new puppy I may decide to go with one of the pet ones.
