3 Girl JAM "Beautiful Bows" Blog Hop

Oh My Goodness the day has finally arrived. I have been bursting at the seams to let the secret out. You can ask my family how horrible I am at keeping secrets. If I shop for Christmas too early I will end up telling everyone what I got them so I always wait til the last minute.

If the Iowa Craft Girl, Avery sent you over then you are in the right place. If you just happened along my blog then you will want to go visit the 3 Girl JAM blog and start from the beginning.

I hope you have been enjoying all the Beautiful Bows along the hop.
For my projects I have made some more lunchbox notes for the grand kids. They really like the fancy notes instead of just a little written note so I am trying to get ahead of the game this summer.
Only 1/2 of my projects have bows because the grandson would dis-own me if I tried to sissy-fy his cards.
Antique White crinkle ribbon
Witches Brew crinkle ribbon
Red-White-Blue crinkle ribbon
All the fruity dies and stamps are from Papertrey Ink
All the sentiments are from K Andrew's "Food for Thought" and "Even More Food for Thought" stamp sets.

I have always had such a hard time making bows and that is why you do not see many bows on my projects but............
Would you like to know how these pretty bows, on today's projects, were made???
You will probably be seeing many more bows on my blog from now on, that's for sure.

The secret to all the Beautiful Bows that everyone is featuring today is.........
The brand NEW and FAB-YOU-LOUS
<< 3 Girl JAM Bow Maker >>
The Bow maker is available for $5.99 plus shipping
through July 5th will come with a
"brand new" for this release only
4 yard bundle of...........

This includes:
the 2 piece bundles
the Red, White, and Blue Bundle (there are still a few left)
the Jackpot Bundle.
Call it our "Flash Sale"- because it will go by in a flash!

I really like these little cards. I was planing to make some for my daughter to take to camp to sneak into her campers bags when they leave. I plan to make animal ones, but these would be fun the JR. High campers. I really like the yellow lemon one! TFS
