1. Choose two or three widths and types of ribbon. We’ve used Chocolate Chip wide grosgrain ribbon and the wide Chocolate Chip satin ribbon from Theater Ribbon Originals®.2. Cut the widest ribbon the longest (Theater Ribbon Originals) and the narrowest ribbon the shortest (Chocolate Chip grosgrain). If you’re using a third width of ribbon, cut it to a length in between the others.3. Trim ends as desired.4. Layer the ribbon with the longest and widest ribbon on the bottom and the shortest and narrowest on top. Tie the stacked ribbons in the center with another piece of ribbon.5. Trim and conceal the ribbon tails or use them to secure the bow to the card or package.
Tying a Tailored Bow
1. Cut a piece of ribbon or paper twice the desired length of the finished bow. We used Old Olive Prints Designer Series paper.2. Form into a loop and secure ends together. Flatten the loop and secure in the center.3. Wrap another piece of ribbon around the center, and adhere the ends to the back of the finished bow. Now that you’ve learned how to tie a variety of bows, spend some time practicing. We all know that “practice makes perfect”, don’t we. After you’ve practiced, show me what you’ve made with some of the bows here. Post a comment here with a link to your project so we can all admire your work!
