I am determined to learn how to make mini bows. I LOVE ribbon. I LOVE bows. I want to make the perfect bow!
Actually, I need to make six perfect bows. I want six wreaths for the windows of the beach house.
I tried my mother's way, Casey's way, and Leslie's way. Casey's bows look perfect to me but I sure couldn't get mine to look anything like hers!
The one below is from Leslie at About.com miniatures. I pounded two little nails into a block of wood then cut off their heads. LOL
The next part of the tutorial is wrapping the ribbon around the nails then securing the ribbon with a piece of thread in the center. This is something like the way my mother's bows are made.
Then you pull the bow off the nails and fluff it up. Here is my bow. Not perfect in any way!
I'm going to keep trying. I'm determined to do this. Then I'll have to figure out how to make six little wreaths. I sure wish I had something that looked like holly...
I'm going to sleep on this. Sweet dreams!
