Hayley is well-known for her ribbon-tying abilities. Her bows are definitely showstoppers for any present. So, she came over after work one evening to give us all a tutorial for our own gift-wrapping endeavors!
Here’s what she did to make this gift even more beautiful!!!
Prior to making the bow, Hayley wrapped the present with ribbon vertically and horizontally and tying a knot. She left two rather long strands of ribbon coming from the knot to be used later.
For the bow:
Starting with several long strands of different-colored ribbon, she made figure eights with one hand, holding the middle of the loops with the other hand.She another figure eight on top of the first.
And, then she made one more figure eight on top of those two.She then used the long ends of tied ribbon from the gift box to tie a knot around the group of figure eights.She cut several smaller pieces of contrasting ribbon and tied on top of the larger bow.She bent each end of ribbon and cut at a diagonal to make two points.She then “fluffs” the finished product with her hands by pushing the bow in toward the center. She said she likes to use stickers for her gift tags to secure the box ribbon down to the gift.Beautiful!!!
