Bow-it-All V2.0 Video Tutorial * Mastering the Locking C-knot for Righties AND Lefties

Hello fellow ribbon lovers!  I'm back today with another Bow-it-All V2.0 video tutorial to review two things that give people the most trouble.  I will be reviewing the locking c-knot and I'm demonstrating for both lefties and righties.

As I state in the video below, it is NOT mandatory that you learn this knot.  If you just can't get it, but your bows are beautiful and they stay tied, keep doing what you are doing.  It's a great knot to use if you can though, since it is very difficult to untie once it's tied and tightened.

I also have a quick card to share.  This is an all-occasion card that I can use for whatever arises.  All I have to do is quickly add an appropriate sentiment to the inside of the card.

This is another card using a great digi sheet from one of my favorite etsy sellers - Cobra Graphics.  There are so many great options available, and by having these digi's on hand, I can quickly make up a card even with the very limited time I have.

My bow is a simple double-layer bow made from 5/8" White Delicate Stitched Satin using my Bow-it-All V2.0.  This is one of my favorite ribbons to work with on the Bow-it-All as it performs wonderfully for any type of bow.  I also added a piece of 3/8" White Double-faced Satin above the scallop punch around the middle of the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.
Don't forget I have a giveaway posted on my MakeTime2Craft Blog through July 13, 2014.

  5. Thanks for the video. I have my Bow It All and tried it once and put it back into the box. :( I'll take it out again and do a bow along with the video to give it another shot. The card below the video is outstanding. It's beautifully done and I love everything about it. And that white bow....yum! :) Hugs, Gail

  6. Thanks for the video tutorial on using the Bow it All. I have the original and haven't used it much at all. This has inspired me to get it out and play with some of your pretty ribbon.
