Bow Tie Bracelet by Valorie~

Hi, all!  Phew!  First tutorial for the Mavens blog... No pressure, eh?  :)

Most who know me even a little bit know that I'm a rabid fan of most things British, especially my beloved Dr. Who!  I thought it would be nice to commemorate the wacky Doctor #11, portrayed by Matt Smith, who insists that bow ties are cool.  In that vein, please enjoy my bow tie bracelet tutorial with my compliments.


This tutorial is free but please respect my tutorial by linking your friends to this blog rather than by file sharing or redistributing it.  My apologies; the compression seems to have blurred the font a bit.  :(  For a downloadable and printable (and not blurry) copy (also not to be shared or redistributed) please visit my website [here].







I hope you like it!  I'd love to see what you make with it!

    1. Hi! I use CorelDraw X6 Graphics Suite in the 64-bit format. It's pricey but I love it. It doesn't have "brushes" like photoshop so you have to draw your beads anew with each tutorial but I figured a way to save some of my bead drawings to be used in other tutorials.

      Thank you for the compliment! :)

  15. Absolutely ADORABLE!!!! I made this in Turquoise & Cream & I love it! Everyone I showed it to wants one! You did a fantastic job it was very easy to follow and I think will be a Christmas gift for lots of my family and friends this year. The little bow motif makes great earrings and rings too! Thanks so much!
