Great ideas to expand beyond card making! Will be pestering my brother-in-law to make me a bow jig, too.

This is lovely. I'm wondering if the black cardstock creates a 12 by 12 inch frame great for shadow box.

This is a beautiful project! I have a wooden bow jig like this but it was made with dow wooden pegs instead of nails. All your projects,cards,and tips are great! Love them

Love the composition of this framed gift: the layering, the paper choice, the zing of the foil I have thoughts of compiling this on a canvas and also making it into a card. My Valentines day has been brightened by finding this tutorial.
