  • Construction paper in various colors

  • Hot-glue gun and glue sticks

  • 1-Inch Circle Punch


  1. First we make the card. With the paper trimmer, cut a piece of paper that is 7" x 10". Using the mini scoring board, score the piece of paper at 5 inches on the 10-inch end. Fold the piece of paper at the crease.

  2. Punch 3 circles in different paper patterns or colors with the one inch circle punch.

  3. Then, cut 3 different colored or patterned pieces of paper into 5 inch squares. Place one of the squares in the mini score board and score every ¼ inch. Once you have scored the entire piece, accordion fold the paper and cinch in the middle. Place one dot of hot glue at the center and wait for it to dry.


    Repeat with 2 other pieces of paper.

  4. Once the 3 bow ties are dry, use the hot glue gun to adhere them to the card. Then hot glue a circle on top of each.
