Those are so cute. I think I need to get my kitties some special treat foods. They only dry.  Grin

So adorable!

That is just hysterical!  Your bows look amazing - and are so original.  Great thinking on the cat food bows.  I think they will be a huuuuge hit!
Have you gone through the cabinets now looking for other items to trim down for bow making?  I would have done that and covered up the story by saying I was reorganizing the cabinets (which actually needs to be done thanks to the grab and pull then shove back in method we have going right now....)

that is an extremely neat way of saving the hassle of buying bows Tongue
I'll try to keep this in mind when the holiday season rolls along Wink

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

I've eyed the tuna can, but since I don't cook or even assemble much in the way of "meals" it's take me forever to go through enough tuna to make a bow!  And with the mercury issue... I'll stick with the cat food, although I suppose I could cut down a standard-sized can label. Hmmmmmm

Those look so much better than the store bought bows! They have a creative/unique flair. And it's recycling!

Thank you very much for the tutorial.  Now I can start putting my hoarded magazines to use   Grin
