I made these cute paper bows today using graph paper and thought why not share...
Right click and hit Save As to get the template.
Now to begin...
Cut out the following shapes with your pretty papers. ;) You will need a glue stick, too, so have that handy.
Glue the middle of the largest shape to the middle of the smaller one, like so.
Put glue on the tips of the largest shape, and fold inwards.
Do the same with the other side.
Take the smallest shape--the rectangle--and glue it to the center of the bow.
(No, the side of my finger is not red--the photo filter did that...o_o )
And you're finished! Now you have some lovely bows to decorate anything! I photographed these with my diy moleskine notebook. I will probably do a post on that later on! :)
Now onto other things...did you hear about Robin Williams on the news? It was so heartbreaking to learn he had committed suicide. For someone to reach to that point, they must have been so deep in depression..it makes me so sad. :(
The lovely Launna brought up this topic today, and it made me think so much about that, and the light shining through the darkness.
I remember when one of my classmates was suicidal because of rumors going on about her (You know how we are when teenagers, drama and all). She tried overdosing--thankfully, her mom found her. The next day during class most kids were laughing about it. I couldn't understand--they judged so quickly. They didn't know what it was like. I don't know what it's like, and I don't want to judge.
But life is a precious thing. Hold on, have hope. Try, even though it's hard. The Lord will show us the way :)
love love love! MJ
