Bows and boxes

I love bows for cards and gift giving! That is why I thought it would be great to have a set that had a both a box and a bow, the Fancy Lid!

I have used only a set of dies for this the Sizzix Thinlits Plus Die Set 13PK - Box w/Fancy Lid 660841. And the good news is that even though is a Plus die, all the elements will fit through the regular Big Shot.

This is the assembled box with the quadruple bow on top!
To make the box couldn't be simpler, die cut, fold the scored lines and glue the bottom tabs. For the cover, simply die cut, fold and attach the taps.

The bow has a few options:

And probably more!

To assemble the bows, simply die cut, fold to create two loops and glue them to the centre.

Then glue them to the die cut base. 

Finally add one of the centres, either the dot or the band.

To create the quadruple bow, die cut all the elements. Assemble the loops, and then layer them one at at time.

Finally, simply attach to the assemble box.

I hope you like this project!
