Bow help...

OK, so this is a bit embarrassing, but I will come right out and admit it: I cannot make a bow. No, I am not talking about tying shoes here, but rather the beautiful bows that adorn gift boxes. Sadly, I never learned and have always been envious when I arrive at a party (with my sticky bow) and watch a late-comer grab a spool of ribbon and whip out a fantastic, homemade bow in mere seconds before walking in the door. Seriously, who forget to teach me this?? Lol...

Anyway, I realize not all of you have this problem, but if you are anything like me, then there is hope. I was very excited to find a video from Woman's Day magazine that goes through a variety of bow making. They make it quick and easy and you can pause and watch it as many times as you need to until you have your bow making skills fine-tuned. (Once I watched the video, I thought, "Oh. That's so simple. No wonder people do it so quickly and easily and it looks great."  Lol...)

So if you are in need a little bow-making guidance too, click here for the video.
