think I will be having a go at tying my bows like that. I always seem to waste lots by cutting off a piece of ribbon and then tying it. Will be doing it Jak's way from now on and saving lots of ribbon.

My mother taught us girls how to make bows like that for our hair. I make all my bows this way but with a little trick I leave mine a bit lose in the back so I can run a ribbon in there to attached to my cards then pull the tails tight to hold it together.
I was showing my daughter in-law just yesterday how to do this. How funny..

Thank you so much Jak it is perfect away for a practice x

Barbara said...

Thanks for the tutorial. I like how you angle the ends by lining up with the bow loops.

KathyB said...

Such perfect bows every time! Thank you!!!

builderb said...

I've never seen this technique and I've seen a bunch, believe me! I have to say what I like about this is that there are no special tools required and you can easily adjust the size of the loops to make the bow smaller. I will give this a try!

Anniebee said...

Brilliant!! This is so much better than the results I get from fretting and fussing over them the way I have been doing for so long! Thanks so much for the tutorial, Jak! I have been a silent visitor to your blog since I first saw some of your work on Mo's site but I decided tonight to become a follower. I love your work and always enjoy seeing what you'll come up with next. The pictures you took in York are gorgeous!
