Crinkle Ribbon: Bow Tying tutorial!

I love tying bows with Crinkle Ribbon!! It makes it a little easier to get 'WOW' results than with other types of ribbons.  I have to confess that I am not perfect at tying bows, but this video shows how I tie a few different types of bows to give my projects a little shabby vintage charm.  Scroll down for pictures too!












 
I will be adding new colors of Hand Dyed Ribbon to my blog soon!

    I got my order of crinkle ribbon earlier this week and am excited to put it to use. Thanks for the tutorial on how you make your bows.

  6. Oh, Kimberly! Your ribbon is exquisite!!! :)
    I so wish I didn't already have over 1,000 yards of ribbon (that's a conservative estimate-no exaggeration!), because I would never ever use anything but crinkle ribbon after seeing yours! I love it!!! And I love your cards & tags...you really inspire me! Makes me want to go & hang out in my craft room...

    Thank you so much for sharing (I liked your video),

  7. Kimberly,

    I don't know how much longer I'm going to be able to hold out!!! ;) Your ribbon is delicious and your color and package titles are too cute...so clever!

    Your price on the ribbon is great, too (about $1.11/yard)!

    Hmmmm....

    If you haven't already, check out Kimberly's store!

  9. What cartridge did you use to cut the round ornament? I have been looking all night for a round ornament with a layer for the top klike in your video. Love the ribbon, I may just have tp break down and get some! Thanks

  10. Lezley - I can't remember if I just cut a circle or if I used an ornament from the Christmas cartridge, but I do know that I hand cut the top (Gray) part. I used my decorative edge scissors and cut a strip of cartstock, then I cut out a small section with my scissors. The striped texture of the cardstock helped me keep the lines straight! :) Hope that helps.
