Yesterday I shared a card I made with a triple bow. Several people asked about how I made the bow so I thought I would attempt to share the details. First of all, I have a little wooden bow maker that a husband of one the ladies in card club made for everyone. Here’s a picture of mine.
This little gadget makes bow making a breeze! You just spread out the pegs for larger bows or bring them closer for thin ribbon and/or tiny bows. It’s quick and easy! I did a little research and found one similar from Amazon but it was expensive and from reading the reviews it seems the pegs didn’t stay in the holes. Fortunately, two of my blog followers, Sonny and Nancy, shared information from a fellow demonstrator, Debbie Henderson, who sells them. (Thank you ladies for sharing! I love how we help each other!!) Here is the link:
To make the triple bow on yesterday’s card, I just wrapped the ribbon around the pegs three times. Cross the ribbon over in front (like an X) and take the top ribbon and bring it under and over through the center of the pegs. Then wrap it under the ribbon in front and tie it in a knot. My photos aren’t great but hopefully you get the idea.
Then you just slide it up and off the pegs and cut the ends.The back is facing you so when you turn it around you have a perfect bow. (*I have a pair of scissors that I use just for cutting ribbon. Believe me, it is worth the investment to get a good pair of ribbon scissors!)
I use glue dots to attach the bows to my projects. Here’s a close up of yesterdays card with the bow. You can click HERE to see the full post.
Here’s some bows I made using the organza ribbon. What do you think I’m doing with all these bows?
These bows are some of the ones I made to go with one of the project kits I’m sending out to everyone who placed orders with me in February. Click HERE to find out more about my “Just Stampin’ Card Kit and 3D Project Buffet” TO GO!
