Ribbon Tying Tutorial #3: The Tailored Bow

Once you've go the classics down (the knot and the classic bow), you'll want to add some diversity to your projects from time to time. Here's another variation that works well with cards -- and is pretty much the simplest bow tying technique out there! :)


First, cut a piece of ribbon twice the desired length of the finished bow. Then cut a ribbon about twice the length of the width of the ribbon. (it goes around the ribbon)

Form a loop and secure the ends together. Flatten the loop and secure in the center.

Now, take the smaller piece of ribbon and wrap it around the center of the bow, and adhere the ends to the back.

And there you have it -- another great looking bow to add to your card or project!!! :)

You can either use the bow alone, or you can adhere it to another piece of ribbon.

Enjoy experimenting with this new technique!!! Happy crafting! :)
