This year I decided it was about time I learnt to tie pretty bows to dress up my gifts. After an hour on youtube I’d tried 3/4 different styles and mastered none. Then just as I was about to give up, I found one that I could almost do, in my own way, so I thought I’d share a little tutorial.
Now, some may say I’ve cheated- this is more how to cut and staple a pretty bow than to tie one. But it’s simple and looks impressive when done. So, here we go…
Cut the following lengths from 1inch thick ribbon:
3 x 10inch
2 x 8inch
1 x 4inch
Twist both ends to the middle and staple. Repeat for all but the smallest – roll that one up.
Group each size and staple together
Finally, staple them all together and you have a pretty bow!
I think they look really effective, even on plain old brown parcel paper. Let me know if you try them!
