2-Minute Tuesday Tip – Quick & Easy Bows

Happy Tuesday my stampin’ peeps!!!  Hope you’re having a wonderful day so far.  I am so glad you stopped by for a 2-Minute Tuesday Tip video.  Today’s tip is on making ribbon bows but you can also use Baker’s Twine using this tip.  There are LOTS of different ways to make a bow and today’s tip is quick and easy.

Making pretty bows was always a challenge for me. My bows always looked lopsided.  I learned this little trick to making bows and my lopsided days were done.  Today I want to share the trick with you.

 It seems both my girls brought home an extra treat from Broadway Bootcamp – head colds.  Ugh.  Yesterday I watched two sick girls coughing, sniffing, blowing, and sleeping on my couch all day.  I feel so bad for them.  Not fun.  We heard from one student from bootcamp that they had strep throat so I am counting my blessings that this is nothing more than a nasty cold.  Strep is awful!

On the plus side, it meant that I could get laundry caught up, go through the mail, catch up on emails, etc.  I had a lot to do so having them just sleep it off was fine with me.  I do hope today is a better day and that it’s a short-lived cold.

Today I hope to get some stamping time under my belt but first…. gotta clean that room.  Something exploded in there!  Oh wait, that was just creativity at work.  Well, gotta clean up the creative mess and get back to the fun!

Hope you enjoyed today’s video and will grab some ribbon and get busy creating some beautiful, non-lopsided, bows!  Have a fabulous day my friends!  See ya tomorrow!

    Thanks for reminding me about the bunny ears when tying a bow. I totally forgot that is how I taught my boys to tie shoes. Have a great day!

    I’ve never done the bunny ears, so I will try it out tomorrow. My tip on colds and avoiding them…..days I am with my grandchildren, I take Airborne chewable tablets or Target’s brand….,3 X a day. Works like a charm. If I should start feeling a old coming on, I start these right away roles sentence to of the cold.
