Bow Tying Hack Step-By-Step
I’m sharing this trick using a piece of 19″ ribbon and a D size acrylic block. You could use a larger or smaller block and more or less ribbon if you desire.
Lay the ribbon on your work surface and lay the block on top in the center.
Bring the ends of the ribbon to the front, criss cross them, and pull tight.
Tie your bow. Adjust as needed.
Snip the ribbon on the back side of the block, which will give you a bow attached to two ribbon ends.
Lay on top of your project. Place a glue dot on each end, wrap around your card and attach.
Have you ever tried this before? Will you try it next time you’re crafting?
