Ribbon Bow Tutorial

I'm a thrifty crafter. I love to save time, money, and supplies whenever possible. So, for you I have a ribbon bow tutorial that will save you precious ribbon. There's no need to wrap your ribbon all the way around your cardstock if you follow these steps.
Start with your length of ribbon, and tie a knot around your finger wherever you want your bow to be on the length of ribbon.

When you slide your finger off the ribbon, this is what you are left with. A nice little ribbon loop.

Take your scissors and put them through the loop. Angle your scissors and cut your ribbon.

And look, you have a bow.

Attach your ribbon to your cardstock by wrapping the ends behind and adhering with a glue dot. Finish your project!

Stamps: Wild About You, Short Order Numbers, Canvas
Ink: Old Olive, Jet Black StazOn
Paper: Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Old Olive
