Woodware challenge...using acetate

I love to make these bows from acetate to decorate presents.
They always stay bouncy and have a wonderful shine.
Depending on how big you want your bow, mine is approx 12cm across, cut some
acetate to 12cm wide by about 20cm long.
Colour it with alcohol inks on one side and stamp a design all over using a
suitable ink pad such as StazOn.
Once dry cut into 1cm x 12cm wide strips, 15 to 16 will do.
Punch a small hole at each end of all the strips.
Take one strip and loop the strip over and and thread both holes onto a big brad. Continue until all your strips are looped over and on the brad. Spread them out evenly in a nice circle and open up the back of the brad to secure.
All you have to do now is decorate your present.
