Inky Impressions - Bow tutorial

Happy Monday everyone!  Today is my turn over at Inky Impressions to do a tutorial for everyone.  Now I did't have time to create a new one as I've been out of the loop the last two weeks with a couple deaths in the family so I thought I'd pull up an older one I did and share it with you all.  Now i know you all love to make bows and well this little tool is fabulous!!

With this bow easy you can make bows in the following sizes: 3/4", 1", 1 1/4", 1 3/8", 1 3/4", 2 3/8", and 2 3/4"

Step 1: hold the bow easy in your hand with the size you want to make closer to you. Hold the bow easy and one end of the ribbon securely between your thumb and pointer. (see photo)


Step 2: Wrap the ribbon around the template so that the tails will cross over each other on the top. (see photo)


Step 3: Pull the tail that is crossing over the top through the middle so you forming a loop. (see photo)


Step 4: Pull the tail back around and through the loop. (see photo)


Step 5: Tighten the bow by pulling on both tails (see photo)


Step 6: This is the back view of the bow after your are finished, still on the template


Step 7: Pull the bow off of the template and trim ends to your liking.


If you want to make a double bow, repeat step #2 again before moving on to step #3. If you want to make a triple bow, repeat step #2 once again before moving on to step 3.

And here is a card I made and of course the bow was made using the bow easy
