Oval Punch Bow

At my downline meeting this past weekend I demonstrated how to make these cute little paper bows using oval punches.  I want to thank both Jill Olson and Kelly Acheson for their pictures and info on these on their blogs.
 You start by punching out four ovals using your oval punch.  The bow size varies by the size of the oval punch you use.
 Take one of your ovals and gently fold in half, keeping the curve of the bow and attaching with glue dots - do this twice.
 Here I attached those two pieces to a scrap piece of cardstock I'd punched for a base.
 Next take your other two ovals and cut a "V" out of one of the ends on each.
 Next attach those ovals with glue dots to the underside of each of the loops.  I then punched a little flower, added a gem and adhered in the middle of the bow to finish it off.  So cute and easy!!! ~Maureen
