Double Tied Bow – NEW!!

So I have something new to show you.  I’m snickering just a little bit like a mischevious little girl.  I sneaked this out on you last month just so I could see who would catch it.  Sure enough, some of you had your eyes peeled and said “Wait a minute! How do you do that double bow.”   Geez Louise – I can’t get anything past you guys.  So all right – this is my new favorite bow.  It’s a little bit fussy and not as easy as a regular bow but let’s face it, if you can tie a regular bow, you just have to do this twice.  Come on now – none of this “I can’t tie a bow stuff”.  Take a deep breath and let’s get started.  By the way, so many have emailed me to ask if I had a tutorial on how to make bows.  Well, in fact I have several.  I put a new tab at the top of my blog called Becca Bows . . . enjoy.   Just a word of warning . . . on this video I’m not on caffeine, I have to talk fast to get everything in under 10 minutes, lol!

Thanks sooo much for always sharing all your great tips with us, and I too like the idea about a bowtab, this way, it´ll always be easy to find it again, if we can´t quite remember all the first times. Thanks soooo much hun.ReplyCancel

  • Carolyn McElroyMay 4, 2010 - 1:45 am

    Becca :o)
    I love your tutorials so very much! Like the others have said, you speak so clearly and beautiful and describe everything so well! One question I do have is: after you take the paper out, what do you do w/the extra ribbon? Anything special? Oh, I’m thinking you probably put it around a mat on the card?? Thanks again so very much!!! C:o)ReplyCancel

  • Marion (Australia)May 4, 2010 - 2:40 am

    Thank you very much Becca. Your bows are terrific. with the bow easy the second bow is inside the other one. I love that the bows are separate. after about one hundred times I may remember how to do it.
    I had noticed that beautiful bow on the little box and now I will be determined to make it.
    Hugs MarionReplyCancel

  • Glenda BrooksMay 4, 2010 - 2:54 am

  • ConniecrafterMay 4, 2010 - 8:07 am

    Beautiful and you make it look like even I could do it….I don’t generally use big ribbon on my cards, just can’t make it look right, but I may just have to give this a try on packaging, tfs!ReplyCancel

  • HeatherMay 4, 2010 - 10:17 am

    Thanks for the tute, Becca! I’ve been making these on my Christmas gifts for a few years now. Hadn’t seen them anywhere else. I always conserve my ribbons annually and am often left with these long tails, so I started making the double (and triple – even 4 loops!) when I had the long pieces and didn’t want to cut the ribbon. I find it works best with wired ribbon, but that is just my preference.
    They make such a luscious bow – and really topper for a wonderful gift!ReplyCancel

  • Marilyn ClarkMay 4, 2010 - 12:06 pm

    Thanks for the tutorial and you have a great speaking voice.
    Your instructions are so clear that I will give this a try and I am bow challenged.
    Thanks again and God bless. Have a great day.ReplyCancel

    Becca, your bows are beautiful.
    This single bow is exactly how I tie my bows.
    But my Daddy taught me as a little girl learning how to tie my shoes how to tie a bow. I must try this double bow, they are so pretty.
    You always have the prettiest ribbon.
    Thanks so much for your ” Becca Bits”ReplyCancel

  • Deebi27May 5, 2010 - 5:21 pm

    Bows I can tie, but I shy away from the wider ribbons. You have now given reason to not shy away from wide ribbon…as long as I have wired I think I can do this! Your bows are just so professional looking. Thanks for the video, esp on the double and triple layers. You are the “Bow Easy” w/o the “Bow Easy”…Lol!!ReplyCancel

  • TammiMay 6, 2010 - 7:25 am

    Thank you so much for posting this bow video. I will keep watching and practicing until I get it right. Your beautiful bows are the perfect touch on all of your creative cards, boxes, envelopes, etc.

  • Mary LizMay 15, 2010 - 9:28 pm

    Love the bows! Also, really like the ring on your right hand – would like to own one….any information on where I might find one?

  • BernieMay 19, 2010 - 1:47 pm

    Was looking for a new way to tie bows and found you on Youtube. Awesome! Can’t wait to try it. I’m off to poke around your blog. Thanks for the tutorial.

  • Janet LarsonMay 27, 2010 - 11:23 am

    Becca such a great tip, I hope you don’t mind that I share this idea with one of my card swap groups. I have recently been put in charge of finding a tip for each Thursday and I would love to show off some of your different tips. If there is a problem with my doing this please let me know and I won’t do any more.ReplyCancel
