Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

Chocolate Box Bow ...

Hi Everybody,

I know that not everybody likes to add bows to their cards and if that is you then look away now ....

But for many of us they are the perfect  addition and for those that have  asked me how I tie them then this is just for you

This beautiful satin ribbon is from  Mei Flower   and it is so  soft and  ties like a dream.

I have used about a metre to get this double bow but experiment and see what you  come up with for the size of bows that you like.

The background is using the new Tied Together  die  from  JGD Crafts  and I love the pattern that it gives

The centre of the bow is covered with a pearl and diamant√© sparkler from Wild Orchid Crafts  and I use a hot glue gun to hold them in place.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

Many, many thanks indeed for this video the number of times I have tried to do this double bow you would not believe, and all I have ended up with is ribbon looking like a dish rag, it has been tied and untied so many times! Now at long last I too can tie this bow and does it look good, oh yes indeed.
