Default How do I tie this bow?

Because I Care by bbcrazy - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

I cannot for the life of me figure out how to tie this bow so that both tails are in the back. I can figure out the early espresso, but that soft, beautiful bow with both ties in back has taken an hour of my life and I STILL don't know how to do it! lol

Might be a peg bow. Becca Feeken has free video tutorials on all the beautiful bows you could possibly want to make.

Ann has tutorials on her blog on bow tying. She uses a piece of cardboard! She is incredibly artistic and such a nice person.

I thought it looked like she just created two loops and brought a separate piece of ribbon around the center. It is lovely with the two types of ribbon.

I just must be the dumbest person in the world! I watched Ann's video over and over and over. I even have the bowmaker, and I was STILL confused. At first I attributed it to my being left handed, then I realized it was far more serious than that. lol I watched a really good youtube video that said the same thing Ann did, but it finally just clicked for me...after another hour Finally I figured it out and realized it was easier for me by hand using the same steps in both videos. whew! Now if I can only remember how I did it for next time! I really should be too embarrassed to post this, but that's just more evidence of my inferior intellect. bahaha

Bow Easy bow maker. It has several prongs to make different size bows. Here is a blog post that tells about it, and you can get them on ebay and several other online stores.
