Talking Newbie and LOVING every minute!

Hi, my name is Toni. I have been into paper crafts my whole life, but only recently gotten serious with it.

Looking for any tips on tying the perfect bow

I am lefthanded and sometimes challeged lol!

looking forward to seeing what SCS has to offer

Hi, Lashay! Welcome! I'm new here, too! I love SCS, and like you, I've been into papercrafting before, but have just recently had the means to take it seriously.

I am left handed, too!

Welcome!

Hi Toni and welcome from New Zealand and another south paw! I have struggled with bows too until I found a book called The Gift Wrapping Book by Caroline Birkett which has instructions. Also are you familiar with Stampin' Up!? One of the Stampin' Up! catalogues (2009) has instructions for bow tying.

Hello ladies, I have attached a link to Kittie's bow tutorials - there are three youtube demos. Kittie makes the most amazing cards and has many great things on her website and here at SCS. I have taught Kitties single bow method to children as young as 8 years old.....very easy and perfect everytime!!

Hi Toni and welcome to SCS! There's a lot of videos on Youtube you can check out. I'm a visual learner so I always go for videos instead of picture tutorials hehe. You can also do them using Bow-Easy or a faux-ribbon peg like this one: CCC Bow Maker a la CeeCee - YouTube

Hi from another Lefty! I use the Bow Easy that Cathleen mentioned... it was just a matter of mentally reversing the directions for me - I love that little tool!
