Video - The Perfect Bow!

I know that many of you express your frustration with making the perfect bows for your cards.  Well fret no longer!  I learned an awesome trick while at Leadership Conference and couldn't wait to share it with you!  Enjoy!  Post comments on the blog itself so I know what you thought about it!


  1. That is SUPER Cool!!! Patty, can you adjust the "loops" of the bows to make it larger by pulling them outward after it is all tied or do you just need a larger fork?

  2. Sharon,

    I have found that although you can make the "loops" of the bow a little larger by pulling on them, it changes the appearance of the bow (not a cute). I use a larger fork to make a bigger bow; that way I can keep the adorable "shape" that it creates!

    Thanks for asking!


  3. Ok you know I'm always a dink about stuff like this so please forgive me...I tried this and it works great!!! BUT...ha ha told ya! It is ok if you're going to leave the tails but if you are adding it to say a card across the bottom the perfect bow is straight up an down. (sideways) any quick fixes???

  4. This is a great technique. I will have to try it. I also have a tool I found on line that helpes to make bows. It is called the Bow Easy. See you soon.

  5. Hi Patty
    After watching a couple of on line tutorials I found out how to solve that problem...the back loop is done differently...I'll show you at the meeting next Monday night! Cant' wait!!!
