Bow Tutorial

Okay, so I've been asked by several of you how I tie my bows!! So here's how I do it...super super easy!!
Let's begin:

1. Start your first tie

2. Make two bunny ears

3. Criss-Cross them and tie (see, super easy)

4. This is what the bow looks like after it's tied...not very pretty!!

5. Now it's time to fix it all up...a little twisting here, maybe some there...don't forget to puff up the loops and voila!! A perfect bow!

**I like to trim my end pieces pointed inward.
**If you can't get the bow to face the right direction, try tying it upside down!
**Try using wired ribbon!!

If you have any questions please feel free to ask!! I'll answer them in this post!!



Happy Bow-making!!!

  2. This is great, i am going to try this . thanks for sharing your technique.

  3. do you always run your ribbon behind something before tying it? I try to stretch my supplies, so I just wonder...

  4. Becca,
    I do on cards...but if I'm tying a bow for a layout I will "cut" it and try to save that extra 11inches that won't be showing on the back!!


Thank you so much for stopping at my blog!!
