Default wife's birthday present continued

This is my first attempt at a bow. It will be used on the box I'm building for the portrait of the grand kids I'm making for my wife's birthday Thursday.

Can't decide if it makes a better bow or pine cone.

It may be a bit tall, but it is a beautiful bow!

The box is quite large so I think it will be OK

LOL Rob!
- if you are worried about the pine cone effect you could make a couple of longer curly tails to come our from the base of the bow so there's no doubt what it is. Other than that it looks fine. You've a stack more patience than I have tackling this sort of job!

I'm sure your wife will love it.

O.K. spill the beans.....how did you do that?
Looks like compound cuts, but sure looks like lots of them.
......and don't tell us you bought her a refrigerator, or you are dead meat!
