I love the new Kiwi Kiss/Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon. At first it may feel a little daunting on how to tie a ribbon so that it’s even and looks stunning. So here’s a tutorial that will help you tie the perfect bow using the new different sided ribbon for your cards. So here is the final perfect bow.
I’m right handed so I start off by creating the basic loop in my right hand. The forward piece of the end is about 3 cm and the back piece is where I will be using it to wrap it around the first loop to create the knot and the other loop.
Picking up the back end using the left hand, twist the ribbon slightly so you can see the Very Vanilla and wrap it in front of the tip of your right thumb.
Keep wrapping around the tip of your right thumb so that it has done one full wrap around the loop and back in the same position.
Using your left hand, (I use my second finger), push through the ribbon creating the knot and final loop.
Here is the bow whilst it is still loose, move the ends and loops to position the knot in the middle where you would like and tighten by pulling the loops as well as pulling the ends to keep it neat and perfect.
Trim the ends and lightly singe them with a lighter…And voila! Your perfect bow.
