I am dreadfully Bow-Challenged. You may have noticed if you’ve been reading me for any length of time. And, of course, you can tell by the photo.
I last mentioned this several months ago, in my Snowflakes on a Field of Green article. In the article, I mentioned one of my ways I get around the issue.
I decided to collect some of my tips to help you if you’re Bow-Challenged, too:
- Tie a bow around a card layer upside down, then turn the layer right side up.
- Tie a knot (my #1 go-to)
- Tie a bow from a separate piece of ribbon and adhere it to an attached strip of ribbon
- Attach pre-made bows.
- Make bows from the Bow Builder Punch (137414 – my #2 go-to). You can make single or double loop bows with this tool.
- Tie a knot before you tie a bow if you’re using thin or slick narrow ribbon or twine.
