Hello there! I thought I would pop in to share how I tie my seambinding bows. Now I am no where near a perfect bowtier....is there such a thing and is there such a word, lol? I always want to mess around with them. Bows can be such tempermental little things. With out them though my cards seem so sad so I almost always add them. Ribbon is essential to me and adds much needed softness to a card. So today I have a spooky little project. I have been having a blast making Halloween goodies so today's card is just that. I made my card and scored it and added my pattern papers. Of course than I started to pile on my goodies. Little bit of stamping, fun cackling witch, and a diecut sticker.
I grabbed my yummy black seambinding and crumpled it up. I use a lightly wet paper towel and crickle it up in it. Works well and fast. Now with my seambindings sometimes I wrap it all the way around the card but often times I don't. It just ends up getting covered with embellishments anyways. I don't tie bows so it is all one piece. I make separate bows and "piggy back" them onto each other till they look full to me. As you can see in the pics I tie one and adhere and than add the next alternating the direction of each bow. The last one I tied my sentiment tag with twine to it and than adhered. My way might be a bit diffrent but it works for me. OHHH and don't pay attention to my messy desk! Hope you enjoyed! cherry
