Christmas is getting closer, and I’m getting ready for wrapping all the presents for my family and friends. I always try to give each of the presents a touch of personality and I get very creative while I do gift-wrapping. However, to get there it’s important to know the basics, and that is why today I’m showing you how to tie the perfect bow. It’s very simple and with some practice you will be able to make ribbon bows in no time.
- Make a loop with the ribbon and hold the loop between your thumb and index finger, with the ribbon end at the back several inches longer than the front end. Use your opposite hand to pick up the long end and wrap it around the loop to begin the knot.
- With your index finger of the same hand, push a loop through the knot in front of the thumb holding the first loop.
- Pull the back of the loops with your thumbs and index fingers to tighten the knot
- Cut the ribbon ends to equal lengths.
