Bow Tying Tutorial

Hello.  I am on a roll this week, hu?  I have something that I wanted to share with you.  Last summer Beate asked me to make a video for Splitcoast Stampers.  Well, life happened.  My mom passed away and shortly after that we moved back home.  Fast forward a couple more months and we started to talk about it again.  I am not sure I have too much to offer for a video, I told her.  The only thing I could come up with was a bow tying tutorial.  I have been asked many many times...how I tie my bows.  So, guess what?  I made a video on how I tie my bows.  PLEASE be kind.  This is my first video and I nearly had a panic attack knowing so many people were going to see it.  With that said HERE is the tutorial.





Supplies:
Cardstock: PTI/Rustic White, Kraft
Patterned Paper: MME/ Lost and Found Market Street
Ribbon: Offray found at JoAnn's craft store
Stamps and die: MFT/ Polka Dot greetings , Simply Scallops and Prima Donna Petals Die, Pearls of Wisdom stamp set

Thanks so much for your kind words and support,
Heather

Elaine said...

Its gorgeous Heather. I love the bow, your hints on tying are fab , but I'm afraid I have to use a bowmaker, I have a "Wonky and clenched " right hand and find fidly things a bit difficult. I love this card and of course the Bow , Well done
Hugs Elaine

Thank you so much for sharing this video. I am going to try this. I always struggle with tying ribbon. I always thought of you having a southern accent...but you're midwest! It was so nice to hear your voice.
