Mastering Ribbon ~ # 1 Bows

Stampin’ UP! has the most amazing selection of ribbons and trims ranging from twine  up to 1/2 inch wide and the selection of textures and colors that coordinate with other products makes it so easy to decorate cards and other paper crafting projects.

Over the next few weeks I am going to be sharing a few hints and tips on how to use the ribbons and trims and today I start with bows.

This is a single loop bow is made using the 3/8 Emerald Envy Striped Grosgrain Ribbon which also comes in Dapper Denim, Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum.  You can see from the video it makes such a very pretty bow.

I always make sure I have a sharp pair of scissors to hand when working with ribbon, nice sharply cut ends to the ribbon just make it look good.  I keep a pair especially for cutting ribbon, appropriately marked with a piece of ribbon just so they don’t get mixed up on my work bench.

    Wow! Thanks for sharing this 0h-So-Easy bow tying trick. I assume that I can do this with wider ribbon and bigger bows also. I can’t wait to try it.
    You are the best SU demonstrator and I’m delighted that I found you.
