A Different Kind of Bow Tutorial

I recently posted this card over at SCS and I had a PM from Kathy asking me how I made the bow. It’s really funny how this bow came about, because I made it too large for the card. I’d already glued it down, so I had to try and figure out how to save the card. I decided to try to trim it down a little, and the results were a pleasant surprise! I really liked the way it turned out!

Here’s how I made it in a few easy steps. I hope you can read the instructions by clicking the photos to make them larger. I’m trying Live Writer for the first time for this post since Blogger only allows me to post 5 pictures at a time.

And here is the finished card.

I hope this helps anyone who’s interested in making a bow like mine.

Carol,
Thank you so, so much - you are the best! The tutorial is wonderful - and even I shouldn't butcher another ribbon!

I foresee that this link on your blog will start appearing in blogland - and one day, you will visit someone's blog that you don't know and see your ribbon and a reference to your blog!!
