Triple Looped Bow



Hello!  I am so glad the weekend is here!  How about you?  I keep seeing big, beautiful, triple looped bows all over the blogging world, and thought I would give one a try.  I don't know if I did it correctly, but these are the steps I took:)


First I gathered my GORGEOUS Sheer Ruffle Edge White Ribbon by May Arts into loops by making a loop on one side, then the other for a total of 6 loops.  I held the center of the ribbon the whole time and when I was finished I used a needle and some thread to secure it:


After I pulled the needle through, I wrapped the thread around the center several times, then pulled the needle through again and knotted it off.



Then I tied some fabulous Cotton Candy Baker's Twine around the center:


I then glued on my button.  I decided to cut off the ends of the ribbon, and this was the final result:



Like I said, not sure if this is how the pros do it LOL, but it works!  I will leave the recipe for my card below.  Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful Saturday!
