For this page, I wanted to use the Cricut Sophie Cartridge for the doily and I wanted to use the color combo of grey, pink and teal. So I got out a collection of pretty papers from The Robin's Nest and a few pieces of paper ribbon from Creative Memories and made a stripe of striped paper to get the colors I wanted in the piece on the left.
I made a paper bow by cutting two strips of The Robin's Nest paper 1 1/4" wide and 12" long. I made a mark on the wrong side of one piece in the middle and folded the ends in to create the loops. I created the ends by notching the ends and pleating the bit below the bow. I cut the loop of the remains of the paper and trimmed the center of the looped piece a bit. I added Dew Drops to the doily and fussy cut some of The Robin's Nest Glitter Pink Swirl to create an embellishment to match the circle cut in the same paper on top of the doily. This is a great way to get a matching embellishment for less: just fussy cut your a pretty paper!
