Beate Johns answers your technique questions
Q: Tasha asked: "This may be an odd question, but I noticed that the ribbon tied on many of your cards looks much nicer then mine, specifically the knot part. I have tried to make mine look "pretty" like yours, but haven't perfected it. Can you tell me how you are tying your ribbon so that I can achieve the same look on the knot?"
Here is how I tie my knots. But remember, I am a lefty, you might have to do it in reverse if you are right handed. Fold the left side of your ribbon over and under your right side. Now take the same piece of ribbon (it comes from the bottom now), fold it over the top piece of ribbon (hold the top piece down) and under again. Before tugging the knot tight, I twist the right hand side of my ribbon piece over.
