Bow-Tying ~ You can do it, too!

We’re having bow-tying classes on Saturdays at 2 p.m., and sometimes on Fridays .. like today!  The great thing is, all ribbon in the store is 50% off on demonstration days.  Almost all of the ribbon we carry, in hundreds of colors and styles, is wired, making it even easier to work with.

So, pick out two bolts of ribbon that make you happy together – don’t cut off a length, just work from the bolt.  Both of these make me happy because they are so sparkly and glittery!

Then there is some complicated and tricky looping and pleating and scrunching .. I hope I’m not too technical for you here.  {I’m kidding!}  Our experts can teach anyone these simple techniques.

First Loop

Scrunch Tight

 

Add a chenille pipe cleaner and twist tight.

Twist - Twist - Twist!

With a little direction from our floral team, Ta-Da!  It’s a beautiful bow!

A Beautiful Creation

We attached our sample bow to one of our ever-popular mesh boxes – which look particularly spectacular when you fill the box with a strand of rice lights for a soft glow.

Our Floral pros Prissy, Betsy, Dori & Ginger are always happy to demonstrate a technique or help with floral and ribbon recommendations.

Today and tomorrow, all ribbon bolts in the store are 50% off.  We’re also running a weekday & Sunday special – buy two bolts, receive a third bolt free (of lesser or equal value).  We have so many to choose from, you’ll have a hard time deciding on your favorties!  Come on down to the store, or shop on-line for the best ribbon deals.
