A stamper who blogs at Butternut Sage Designs has created a very clever gadget to easily make a bow with tails that will wrap and adhere behind a panel. I won’t even attempt to describe the template or process — instead, I’ll direct you to her very clear video here.
When you try this for yourself, I would suggest working with a longer piece of ribbon. We’re using this technique on a card in camp this month, and we’ll use 14″ of ribbon for a 4¼” card width. (I’ll show you the card tomorrow.) I would love your feedback on this!
