Mesh Oilcloth Gift Box


  • Eileen Hulls Sizzix Scoreboard Bow Die
  • Westcott Titanium Non-Stick Shears
  • Cardstock
  • Marvy Uchida Brush Markers
  • Art Glitter Ultrafine Neon Glitter
  • Crushed Velvet
  • Mexican oilcloth
  • Mesh Tulle
  • Fabric Mod Podge
  • Paper Mod Podge
  • Blumenthal Lansing Favorite Findings Buttons
  • Wire twist tie


Color a pattern on one side of paper with Marvy Uchida Brush markers. For the mesh pieces, color both sides of the paper, since the paper shows through the mesh. Apply paper to pieces of velvet, mesh tulle and oilcloth using Fabric Mod Podge and let dry. Brush on Paper Mod Podge over marker pattern and apply ultrafine neon glitter by Art Glitter and let dry. Run the finished layered pieces through a Sizzix Big Shot machine using the Bow die from the Eileen Hull Sizzix Scoreboards collection. Layer buttons from Blumenthal Lansing with the custom buttons you just made using the bow die (which cuts both bow strips and buttons) by threading through a 12” piece of coordinating wire twist tie. Then add the bow strips, starting with the small size and be sure to twish the strips for the 3D bow effect. You can also lie them flat for a more low profile bow. Finally pull everything tight from the back and twist in place to secure all the pieces. Now you are left with a beautiful decorative bow which can be used for a variety of purposes: Gift Wrapping, Decorative Accent, Jewelry, Hair Accessories and more!

Pretty bows and definitely different than the usual bows we see adorning packages. I think the oilcloth would also make a bow suitable for embellishing a child's headband and the colors are quite inspiring. I wasn't sure what Mexican oil cloth was but found some sources by searching on line.

There is not an add button at the top of this page???????
