Hello there! I thought I would pop in to share how I tie my seam-binding bows. Now I am nowhere near a perfect bowtie....is there such a thing and is there such a word, lol? I always want to mess around with them. Bows can be such temperamental little things. Without them though my cards seem so sad so I almost always add them. The 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, then I started to pile on my goodies. A little bit of stamping, a fun cackling witch, and a die-cut sticker.

I grabbed my yummy black seam binding and crumpled it up. I use a lightly wet paper towel and crackle it up in it. Works well and fast. Now with my seam binding sometimes I wrap it around the card but oftentimes 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 "piggyback" them onto each other till they look full to me. As you can see in the pics I tie one and adhere and then add the next alternating the direction of each bow. For the last one, I tied my sentiment tag with twine to it and then adhered. My way might be a bit different but it works for me. OHHH and don't pay attention to my messy desk! Hope you enjoyed it! cherry
