If you have a need for little teeny tiny ribbon bows and find them a terrible fiddle, then you will love this little how to make a bow with a fork trick. It will get you the perfect little bow, without any of the hassle. We love these bows for scrapping booking (or in our case Smash Booking), but they are also great for sewing projects for kids (we used some of the ribbon bows on these Bunny Brooches). We also have a great “Hair Bow DIY” for bigger bows.
This little Bow Tutorial forms part of our CRAFTS BASICS series over on youtube (and the blog of course). I created the series to bring together, well all those “basics” that help make crafting fun and do-able – including some basic hand sewing stitches (very popular), but also little hacks like getting the sticky label off a jar! Information that usually gets lots in the depths of an ordinary blog post!
