I am obsessed with making bows with my Cricut! I think it’s because I’m so horrible at tying bows (seriously, they always look oddly floppy). It is just so nice to finally have a bow that turns out well! I’ve got a free SVG for you today that can be used in several different ways!
Paper bows make the perfect topper to any Christmas present! This is the perfect time to use all that Christmas scrapbook paper, or if you want to keep it simple: copy paper! Both turn out super cute!
Faux Leather Bows
Faux leather bows are quite possibly my favorite thing to make with my Cricut! If you use Cricut’s paper thin faux leather you can cut it with any Cricut machine! If you are using a thicker faux leather, I would suggest cutting it with the Cricut Maker‘s rotary blade.
Start by downloading my free SVG below or in my SVG library. You can then print the image and use as a template to cut by hand, or upload it to Cricut Design Space and cut it with your Cricut. You do not need every piece for every bow. Mix and match and make it your own! Once pieces are cut, turn your main bow piece over (the one that looks like a pair of sunglasses) and put a dab of hot glue in the center. Fold one end in. Repeat for other side. Glue bow on top of decorative bottom piece if desired. Flip entire bow over and attach center pieces starting with one end. Loop around the front and then glue the other end to the back. Here is a quick video if you need help.
Here’s your SVG!
Simply right click on the image below and click save!
As a bonus I’ve added a special mermaid tail that can be added to your bow for a trendy look! Use it in multiple ways! You can buy faux leather with mermaid scales, but I have also included a scale pattern. Cut out the scales with iron-on vinyl and press it to your faux leather tail!
