Making a bow with Sweet Tooth Boxes cartridge...

I love these bows so thought I would post how I make them.
It is so simple and they are so cute!!

 1. This is the bow post cut at 5 inches. The measurement is from tip to tip of the main bow piece
 2. I inked the edges and ran the pieces through the cuttlebug for some dimension and texture
 Then I placed a piece of double sided tape in the centre at the back of the main piece
 3. I folded the side pieces to the back and stuck them onto the tape with the tips meeting in the centre, for extra stick I placed another small piece of tape on top..glue if fine though, what ever you prefer.
 4. I stuck some dimensional tape on (I find depending on the use for the bow it does look nice being raised a little from the bow ends.
5. I then stick the bow end piece on the back in the centre and just below the top of the bow.    Then I puff it up a bit by pushing the edges of the bowinwards evenly on both sides. I also curled the bow ends a little on this one.

Now for the biggest decision of all......which button to use??? They all looked my solution will be......make more bows!! 
I hope this was helpfull, please provide feedback either way.

Thanks for the tutorial...very pretty bow. Never new there was bows on this cart. It would probably help if I opened the box.....I have not used it yet.
