Continuing on my Handcrafted Christmas giftwrap adventure I bring to you: The Perfect Bow!
This lovely little technique from giftwrap guru Jane Means will have you making enough bows to fill a small bungalow, and I’ve included some rather awesome uses for them at the bottom. I learnt this at The Handmade Fair back in September (and have been meaning to blog it for about 3 months now!) in Jane Means Gift Wrap Grand Make!
You will need:
- Ribbon! Today I’m using wired ribbon so it holds it’s shape really well
- Wire – one short length (jewellery wire is perfect)
I’m going to run this tutorial in pictures because it’s just easier to understand that way, but add questions below if anything is unclear!
And your bow is complete!! Now how to use it… Here’s my Top 5 glorious uses for beautiful bows
