Follow Your Dreams w/ The Cutting Cafe

Morning Bloggers!!!
It is my DT day over at
The Cutting Cafe
The Cutting Cafe
and this week the DT is showcasing
                This BOW TIE - RIBBON TEMPLATE - CUTTING FILE features the following:

5 different sized bow ties - ribbons...great for layer to make ribbons or for using alone to make different size bows and bow ties
4 borders
The 5 bows are approx. 10.5, 8.5, 6.5, 4.5, 2.5 inches. (this size is includes the ends) so when folded they will be much smaller then the sizes indicated). The borders are approx. 10.5 inches long.
The files come in the following formats: SVG, PDF AND WPC

                          here is the card I made using the fun bow ties...
Aren't they adorable??? 
I used them as the bows for the kite
Here they are again...closer.
The file comes with 3 different sizes for the bow ties and I used the smallest ones for these
Totally perfect in size
And here is a close up of the sentiment
and all the extra stitching I did for the kite
(LOVE my sewing machine!!)
