Craft Idea from Pinterest

Hello friends.... whilst browsing Pinterest (it is additive I tell you...lol), I came across this little pic on someone's Board.  I repinned it onto mine under Craft Ideas and couldn't wait to try it out.

I am happy to report that it works!  I created the most perfect little bows this morning and am so thrilled about it, that I wanted to share it with you all.

So simple to make... I took some soft cardboard and cut it into the shape above.  I would think that if you want a bigger bow then the card must just be cut wider with your left and right side being of equal width.  I wrapped my ribbon as instructed above, tied a cord around it in the middle and secured at the back. Voila!  A perfect little bow.

Here is my successful attempt.

The nice thing about this is that it is a flattish bow (without the bubble in the centre, if you'd made it the conventional way), this makes it easier to add a flat backed pearl or flower in the centre.  Hope this makes sense.

Have fun trying it out !
