I put together a quick ribbon tying tutorial that I use
on my projects.
Please bear with me this is my first tutorial.
Step 1 -
Materials: 2 - 3" long pieces of thicker ribbon
1 bow tied ribbon (smaller thickness.)
Button and Crochet thread
(or small thickness thread)
Step 2 - After looping ribbon through the button,
tie it to the backside of your thinner ribbon,
leaving the excess.
Step 3 - Flip your bow over on-top of the
criss-crossed thicker ribbon and
flip it over to tie another knot.
Step 4 - Use light, but firm pressure as you
tie the back knot to ensure the criss-crossed
ribbon doesn't pull to one side.
This is a view of what it will look like in the front...
evenly cut the ribbon tails and still leave
the long thread to attach it to your card.
Final step: Punch two holes
(I used the 1/8" SU hand punch) and then tie the tails
of the thread through these holes and tie
a knot on the inside of your card.
You can also use 2 strips of ribbon instead of
Here is the card completed using Dandelion Wishes
From The Paper Nest
I hope that explains how I tie this type of ribbon!
If you have questions or any
other tutorial suggestions, just let me know!
