  1. Thanks to you and wired ribbon I now have beautiful bows on all my Christmas wreaths! Your step-by-step video was very well filmed and your verbal instructions were easy to follow.

  2. Thank you so much! I am not experienced with fabric bows at all, and don't sew. But I found this so easy to follow and understand. There are so many tutorials out there, but I remembered this one & looked quite a while to find it again when I was ready to make the bows. Now it's bookmarked.
    I did a super job with heavy black satin ribbon for a halloween decor. Now I've switched the silver tinsel garland out to a more christmas theme – very sheer red organza wired ribbon. That has given me a comeuppance, the first bows were so easy but I nearly lost my hands trying to grip to make it work with the sheer stuff. Anyway I finally managed it, had to modify technique to just winding fabric & ties at the base of it to make it hold. But I never would have had the courage to attempt the ribbons without your video! You make it seem possible & worth a try!

  3. Perfect video for me! Ribbon is on sale now for the holidays, I have a swag to hang outdoors, and now I don't have to pay $12 for one bow (at Michael's today. Yikes!)

  4. Very nice. Back in the day, I was a gift wrapper for a local store. We made bows for our packages, and though they were well-received, they weren't fluffy like yours. Can't wait to make my bow for my new wreath!

  5. I can't tell you how many times I tried, and failed, to make the perfect bow. That was until I came upon your video. I can't believe it! I made the perfect bow that I am not ashamed of first try. Your instructional video is so simple and easy to follow, even for someone like me, who is not gifted with craftiness. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  6. Vicky what kind of wreath is it you show in the beginning of your video? it's a braided material? it beautiful. thanks for a great, easy video!!
