A Sizzix Bow

When I finished teaching my class Wednesday I was wondering around the AZ Scrapbooking store waiting for my check for teaching and to pay for some rhinestones since I forgot mine (were needed for the class).  I love dies to use in my Wizard (the old purple one) and came across this....

Hmmm....  Interesting!  I seen some earrings made with the smallest of these but I decided to play for a moment with some scrap paper and make a bow as intended.

I really needed another sheet of the paper to get a better bow but you get the idea.

Do you recognize the brad?  It's actually a golf ball brad colored with a Copic marker!  White just wasn't doing anything for me on this flower but yellow!  I will be playing more with this die later.  I did have a little trouble finding the right "sandwich" for this BigZ die but I prevailed!  And I used just pattern paper, not card stock.  If I find another sheet of this particular paper I may add more petals.  But I like how easy it was to make a cool bow!
