Knotty & Nice

Now that Thanksgiving is over, I've been thinking about gift giving. Lifestyle Crafts just released its Knotty & Nice Gift Set collection of dies and I am delighted to get to share some of them with you today. These may well be my favorite Lifestyle Crafts dies ever!

Today I am using the Knotty Gift Set collection -- a set of four dies that create four different bows. (Keep reading for how to create a fifth bow using the same die in two different ways.) I used one to create a thank you card and I just love how plump and happy the bow looks.

I decided the little, simple bow would make a darling accent on a matching gift bag. I thought these would be perfect to give to a hostess for the parties we are sure to be attending during the holiday season.

Next up are two different bows I created with the same die. These are so cute and are a terrific way to top off a small gift box or package.

The polka dot bow below was created by folding the ends straight over. (By the way, that wee little Christmas tree is another Lifestyle Crafts die from their Wintertide collection, the Evergreen Punches.)

The red bow below was created by twisting each over before securing (both were secured with a small brad inside.) I love how different the looks are, but both were equally quick and easy to do.
