Well, Melinda, you asked for it, and since I read ALL comments, today’s post will feature a fabulous step by step pictorial tutorial on how to tie an elegant ribbon bow… hope you’re watching!
No special tools or equipment needed for this simple yet elegant bow…. all you need is ribbon, and a sharp scissors! In today’s Perfect Ribbon Bow Tutorial, I’m using some super wide ribbon to magnify the steps… it works just as well with smaller ribbon too!
9 Steps to Tying a Perfect Ribbon Bow
Step 1: Gathering the ends of your ribbon, make two loops or “bunny ears”
Step 2: Wrap one “bunny ear” around the other…"
Step 3: Fold the bunny ear down…
Step 4: And around..
Step 5: And back through the hole!
Step 6: Now, gently pull on the ears… and manipulate the center knot if needed.
Step 7: Work slowly, pulling alternately on the bunny ears and tail…
Step 8: Downsize your bow until it’s just about right…
Step 9: Tighten the bow… but not too much!
Tip: Don’t pull too tight or your ribbon won’t look very pretty!
