Default Am I the Only One That Can't Make A Bow Out of Ribbon?!

For the life of me, I can't figure out how to make nice bows. It is possible to find any that are pre-made? I love ribbon, but I seldom use it because of this. Most little kids can make nicer bows out of their shoelaces than I can with ribbon!

Default check these out

Hi, there! they can be a challenge! but look so pretty when done right!

You may want to check out a Bow Easy - for a $5.00 investment - it's worth it - at Gina K Designs, Susana's Custom art and Card Design (Suzanne Dean has a video link on the site:Susana's Custom Art and Card Design

Also Becca Feeken - Queen of Beautiful cards and Bows - has a bunch of wonderful tutorials on her site to check out - she makes it look sooooo easy (check the side bar under TUTORIALS for the many)

I love Bows and simply don't use them enough either - but they do wonders!

Good Luck!

LOL! You are not the only one to have difficulty making bows. I have to turn my card upside down to tie the bow directly on it...when it is turned upside down, it is more from the perspective of tying my shoes and surprisingly, I can do it that way.

I have the Bow-Easy. I have looked at all of the u-tube stuff and still not get it. I had one years ago and after I figured it out I wrote the instructions how "I understood it". LOL

I lost the first one and those instructions. So I am back to the Martha Stewart way. Make rabbit ears and tie them together then work in the size and shape.

I do want to figure out the Bow-Easy again, it can make weenie, teenie bows.

Becca Feeken has some fantastic videos on making bows
Go to Tutorials at the top and click on Becca's bows

She takes the process very slow so you can really see what she is doing .
She also has the directions and all the supplies needed for making a cheap & fabulous peg bow stand.

If you don't feel like making a bow but want to use ribbon on your cards, you can just tie it in a knot. Most of the time, this is what I do.

Definitely the bow easy, I've tried some of the other methods listed above and the knots are loose so the bow comes apart after awhile, didn't have this problem once I started using my bow easy.

You are definitely not the only one who has troubles making bows. I'm so bow challenged that I prefer knots instead. Occasionally, I will try a bow and usually end up with a knot.

Yup, I love this.

I will sheepishly admit that I had a hard time getting it. I watched that clip about 8 times, and two others similiar, and finally I got it. And now I can do it without thinking.



I've found a few extra tricks:

I found a bigger salad type fork at Publix for about $3.00. Love it.

If you make the ends longer you can loop them behind the card, but then you won't have the sticking down parts.

Or if you want to attach it to a longer piece of ribbon before you tie the know, slide the ribbon through it.

And you can also use a wide toothed comb to get different sizes or a bow with two sizes of loops.

I am with you...slow learner that I am. I have to watch the videos several times to figure anything out. I wish I could play them in slow motion.

Bugga,

I think I'm like you. It's going to take a lot of practice. I also tend to have very poor spatial and hand-eye coordination, which I doubt will help. But where there is a will, there is a way.

No, I'm not good with bows ~ I resort to knots!
I will be checking out all the links...TFS.

Does anyone remember or heard of a rhyme...right over left & under, then left over right & under....

...or maybe I'm just dreaming...???

I must admit that I use a Bow Easy for my cards, but because I make dolls and other crafty things and often need to tie a bow and can't physically use my Bow Easy, I found an easier and neater way for tying a bow which came from an old craft book. I am also "bow-challenged"!

I hope this makes sense. I actually taught my 7 yo to tie a bow this way because she was having trouble figuring out the "classic" way of tying your shoe laces and was getting frustrated - now she is a happy camper. You start as normal like tying a shoe lace where you have that little sort-of knot to start with, then you make a loop with your right hand AND left hand (so you have 2 loops and not one like the regular tying of a shoelace), then just fold one through the other as normal and tighten and adjust the bows till you are happy. It seems to make a much neater bow.

I usually turn my article (eg: doll etc) upside down so that the tails of the ribbon will be pointing the right way. Hope this helps and that it is understandable.

I just tried the Bow Easy this weekend and it is AMAZING!! I was pretty decent at tying freehand bows but I really love how easy and uniform the bows turned out with the Bow Easy. It did take a few tries to figure it out (with the help of You Tube) but I can't believe I didn't get this sooner

When I first got my Bow Easy, I didn't understand the instructions that came with it but found a step-by-step photo tutorial on Sharon Johnson's Blog - No Time to Stamp here which I found easier to understand. Hope this helps.

I couldn't do a bow either. I found a video using a fork on u tube. Then I found the bow easy. I can do bows like a pro now. Save your money though and use the fork. It works just as well.

I discovered a way to make a "faux bow" yesterday, it is so easy I made a quick video to show you how on my blog: LSS is 2! {40% off} and easy bow tutorail! « Thefrugalcrafter’s Weblog
Here is a pic of the results:


it only take 5 seconds and a drop of hot glue or glue dots

That rhyme is how I learned to tie my Brownie tie. It makes a perfect square knot.

Couple suggestions. The right over left and left over right is for a square knot...works every time (not for a bow). The easiest and most consistent way to make a bow, I've found, is the "bunny ears" (or 2-loop) method. Take a piece of ribbon (any size) and make 2 bunny ears next to each other...just make 2 loops. Take hold of the two loops and flip one around the other (sometimes for a very small bow, I use tweezers to pull one loop around and through the other. Pull tight for a knot and voila'... If you use ribbbon that is not the same on both sides, you might have to "fiddle" with it a bit. Try it a couple of times; works like a charm. Pull your bow as small as you want and leave the tails as long as you want. I always angle the ends of the tails or cut a "V" to finish. Hope this helps.

There are videos out there on bow tying. I tell my customers to make a single knot. Whichever tail is down make your first loop with fold pointing to the side. Bring top tail down and over loop, under and through the space created and voila a bow is made. The square knot, left over right and right over left works but you need to pull one tail to pull the knot under the wrapped middle. Hope that makes a little sense and has helped someone.
