Default How do I tie beautiful bows?

Every card that I have seen with a bow is tied beautifully. How in the world do I make one of those and the other's that do not have any loops?

HELP!!!

Gee whiz, I wish people on this site would stop recommending things. Now I've got a bow maker coming!

I read this subject line and was going to post the exact website that Cambria did. She must have posted it before and I saved it in my favorites. That site spells it out perfectly! Let us know if it works for you!

I use that 4 hole method too - love it. My demo even asked me to take over her workshop one night and show everyone how to do it. She sold some ribbon too, I think! So neat.

Thanks

When I go to http://www.mostlyanimals.com/kristalhtml/tips/bow1.htm, some animal web site comes up; I do not find anything about tying bows. What am I doing wrong?

How do you tie a bow "upside down"?
