Tie a Pretty Collar Bow

Happy Monday!!!  Your last comments had me howling.  Y’all are so funny!   Some of you even leave comments on the comments someone else leaves!  Life is sooo good and I’m blessed to have you great online buddies.  So I have a Becca Bit for you today.  Here again, I’m working hard at trying to be brief so that the video only takes several minutes of your time – this video is less than 4 minutes.  I’m sharing a new bow that is as simple as it is charming and it adds that special little touch.  I’ve used the same color on all the parts, but I know you . . . you’ll get creative :-)!!!  Enjoy!!

See you soon!  Be bless my friends!

    Becca, you are such a clever lady! Who knew it was that simple! It looks so much more complex on the card you showed. Mmm, now I’ve got all these ideas swirling through my head. And of course you can always use the sewing machine or even hand stitch some gathering stitches. Oh my it’s endless! Oh I wish that I could be a fly on the wall of your studio! (at least till you got out the swatter!)

  • pat poskJune 8, 2010 - 4:03 am

    You have such a style about doing things..now even your bows are high style…they have a little collar.

    Thanks Becca for showing this to us.

  • Jan D.June 8, 2010 - 10:15 am

    I took this idea of yours and played with some of my ribbons that work in this application and I took it a step further…..

    I made a longer collar piece and used it as a ruffle around some of my Spellbinder die cuts…just flat ribbon won’t bend around curved edges very well, but this ruffled collar works perfectly…..turned out really pretty, if I do say so myself.

    Thanks again for the ideas.ReplyCancel
