Start by adding the bow wire to the Bowdabra.   Wrap it under the Bowdabra so it is out of your way while you work.  Then cut a 12″ length of green ribbon and place in the channel.

Twirl the bow wire around a pencil creating spirals.  Add the panel to the box creating the easel.  Stamp a phrase on coordinating cardstock, die cut and mat with a larger die.  Add to the box with foam adhesives for dimension.  This will hold the easel upright.
