If you're interested in learning how to "tie one on", keep reading! Wait, you didn't think I mean THAT kind of tie one on did you? LOL! I mean how to tie a bow easily with one piece of ribbon! When I went to the shoebox swap this weekend I noticed a lot of people were using two pieces of ribbon to make their bows so I thought maybe, they don't know this other way! So, here's my "tutorial" on how I do my bows!
Step 1 - Deciding your card needs a bow - then choosing the ribbon!
Step 2 - Gather the items you need for your bow making. Ribbon, scissors, and an item that is not very round such as your stamp pad cleaner bottle!
Step 3 - Now you're going to tie the ribbon on the bottle with a double knot!
Step 4 - Take the ribbon off the bottle and using your scissors cut the loop at a diagonal. Cutting at a diagonal reduces the chances of the ribbon fraying!
Step 5 - Now lay the ribbon on your card. If you cut off a piece of ribbon too long then you will want to trim the ends.
Step 6 - After adhering your bow to your card,using adhesive of your choice, stand back and admire your hard work!
Easy huh?! I have seen tutorials similiar to this one before but, after searching, didn't find them again! I hope you enjoy MY version of bow tying and enjoy tying your own on! LOL!
Until next time....
