Find out how the Bow- it- All helped me make this beautiful wreath for our first Christmas in our new house. Also check out how you can get one on sale for Black Friday and enter a great giveaway sponsored by Blitsy.
A few weeks ago I received a Bow-it-All from Blitsy. With Christmas coming I couldn’t ask for better timing. I don’t have a little girl to create cutesy bows for during the year, but at Christmas momma takes over this house of boys and everything gets a bow. The mantel, the tree, and even the door.
Please excuse the glitter all over my Bow- it- All in the picture above. I might have made a bad choice in ribbon, but it was burlap and glitter so can you blame me! My first impression with this product was great! I love that it comes with it’s own storage. The pegs slide into the board and the whole thing neatly fits into the zippered pouch.
The Bow- it- All comes with a great instruction manual, but I find that I learn better with someone showing me. Thankfully there are a ton of YouTube tutorials out there for it! Once I mastered the “figure 8,” it was easy to make any kind of bow, no matter how many layers!
You can see my bow progression above. I started out simple and then add several layers. My husband was watching as I made these bows, and decided to give it a try too. Of course, he went for the “Mega” bow, and was trying to see how many layers he could possibly get into one bow (his are the burlap bows on the bottom.)
We had a lot of fun and laughs working on these bows. He was actually the one who made the bows for our Christmas wreath. I think they turned out fantastic!
Since this is the first year in our house I get kind of excited about things like hanging our Christmas wreath on the front door. I will probably have to keep this wreath forever, being that it was our first.
I can’t wait to get our tree. I plan on putting the bow a big bow right on top of our tree, using the glittery burlap ribbon. I love how simple it is with the Bow- it- All to make big fancy bows! But, it also makes little bows just as well, so I plan on incorporated some into my christmas cards.
If you have been looking for something to assist with making beautiful bows, I definitely recommend this product. The Bow- it- All 2.0 will actually be part of Blitsy Black Friday Sale, so now is a great time to get one!
