A Simple Knot Tying Tutorial

You all have been so patient!!  Thank you for hanging in there with me.  I had a little bit of a backwards week with several days of migraines.  No, I’m fine now in fact better than ever.  Perplexed about last week though as I rarely get headaches, so they had me put down good.  I’ve been headache free for two days now and was tickled to get back to posting yesterday.  Well, I have another post for you today!!  I’ve had many requests for Bow/Knot tying tutorials and your wish is my command!!  I’m starting out with a basic knot tying tutorial (I know it’s crazy but some people call this a bow but I call it a knot).  With this one out of the way, I’ll concentrate on a tying a full bow, so keep checking back with me. This is simple and short!

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Happy Columbus Day here at home, Happy Thanksgiving to my wonderful Canadian Friends and Happy 50th Birthday to Paddington Bear (see the Google logo today)!

    Thanks for the tutorial Becca! I have never bought any one sided ribbon because I wasn’t sure how to tie it right. I guess it’s time to go shopping!ReplyCancel

  • MelanieOctober 13, 2008 - 4:46 pm

    Wow Becca!!! Thanks for taking the time to so clearly show us and teach us how to tie beautiful ribbon knots like you do!! I am always just a little unhappy with my knots and bows, probably because I always reef on the knot as hard as I can. Now I know to try leaving the knot a little looser! TFS!!!!ReplyCancel

  • JindraOctober 14, 2008 - 10:55 am

    This is a lovely video tutorial. You make it seem “do-able” even for me. I have adult ADD and having video tutorials make techniques and projects so much better for me. Thank you so very much…..and, you have a lovely speaking voice!ReplyCancel

  • Sandy KOctober 14, 2008 - 11:58 am

    Hi Becca…..thank you so much for your visual bow/knot tutorial. You are right that there are lots of hints on the net but still pics and words just don’t mean the same as actually seeing this procedure in action. Excellent! Thanks again!ReplyCancel

  • Cathy B.October 14, 2008 - 12:03 pm

    Thank you, Becca, for taking the time to make this video. Your bows are always so elegant in appearance and your video makes the process look not too difficult!

    Thank you so much, I am bow challenged, thanks for breaking it down to my level. You are so kind to do these videos for us kindergartners. Can’t wait for the full bow video. I am trying to learn something new every day and not just say I am never going to be able to do that or create beauty like you do so easily. Keep praying for me , a dear friend died today and I need to make a sympathy card for her family. Life is so fleeting.

  • Linda CoughlinOctober 14, 2008 - 11:11 pm

    Terrific job on the tutorial, Becca. I just discovered your blog recently and think it is one of the best I have seen. You have such a gift of artistry and are a great inspiration to us. Thanks so much for taking the time to make this beautiful video to help us learn to tie knots and bows.ReplyCancel

  • DawnOctober 15, 2008 - 3:37 pm

    Brilliant Tutorial Becca – this is exactly what I have hoped for – learning to tie a lovely bow, your voice is so soothing too!!
    Really professional – Well Done Becca…

    Becca –

    Your cards are sooo elegant. Thanks so much for sharing your bow-tying technique.


  • ShirleyApril 17, 2009 - 12:38 pm

    Hi Becca, I just wanted to let you know I am referring people to your site from my blog for this video and suggesting they browse the whole site. I have had questions on bow tying over time and I think I like yours best so far. I am assuming you tie the bow just like your knot, but with the tails, right? :-) Your cards are incredible and your other creations too!


  • Adrienne UrbanskiAugust 27, 2009 - 6:02 am

    Thank You for this bow making tutorial. You are such an inspiration. I have one question. Do you have to glue the ribbon down to the card before making the bow. Thank You again.

    Giving God All The Glory,
