Bow Info!! Bow Blog Candy!!

I have been wanting and waiting to share this information with everyone. I have had soooo many comments and emails wanting to know how I make the cute little bows on my cards. I use a very inexpensive tool, and I did not want to share the details until I had a source to direct you to – so you could purchase the handy little gadget and make your own perfect bows! Because, how mean would that be? This is how I do it, but you can’t get it! lol! I found this gadget at my Local Stamp Store Impressive Ideas, for which am so thankful -- prior to that I opted for No Bow -- as I could never seem to get it quite right!

I am happy to tell you that the little bow maker is in stock now at Sharon Johnson's Ribbon Store under the Tools tab … at the awesome price of $6! I have used my gadget for several years, it is sturdy and never fails me! Instructions are provided – you will need the instructions, then after a few practice bows you quickly get the hang of it and can whip bows out in no time! I am sharing some sample boards that I made to help you see some possibilities using different sizes and different ribbons. Blogging pals Jerri, A Touch of Grace and Joan, At Joan's Garden have been playing with this bow maker for a few days now and are sharing projects with the perfect little bows on their blogs. Jerri is working on a video tutorial to show you exactly "HOW TO" as soon as it's up and ready I'll let you know asap! On Sharon’s blog under TOOLS you can find the details and information to purchase. I also have to mention Sharon’s ribbon… My regular readers know I have been completely gaga over the Silk Ribbon from Sharon, I just got my second order of all sizes of the silk ribbon, in all colors, plus other goodies!!! I’m an addict!! This silky stuff ties like a dream and the price is right at .75/yard for the ¼" silk Ribbon and $1.50/yard for the 1.5” Silk Ribbon. Click here to visit Sharon’s Ribbon Store! You can click on the pictures to enlarge or just head to No Time to Stamp where Sharon has all the details you need and large pictures!

What??? You think there should be some Bow Maker Blog Candy with this exciting news. Yeah!!! I think so too! Three Bow Makers are up for grabs! Leave me a comment about anything to do with ribbon on this post for your chance to win one! I’ll use random.org to pick three winning names on Sunday night at 8pm, two winners from the comments below and one winner from my subscription list! So you can double your winning chances with a comment and also subscribing to my feed.

  2. I'm still stumped on how such beautiful bows come out of such an odd looking template. BUT, I'd love to give it a whirl! I have a love/growl relationship with ribbon. I love the look, texture, colors, etc. and have LOTS in my stash, but my bows either come out super cute or in need of a major intervention. But, the love part always wins out and I include ribbon in some form on almost all my projects. THANKS for the info and the chance to win. I'll be adding you to my Google Reader list as soon as I submit my comment. WAHOO!

  3. While I love the look of ribbon - tying anything other than a simple square knot seems to leave me stumped - good to know that there is a tool out there!! Thanks for the opportunity to win one!!

  4. I LOVE ribbon! I'm especially into gingham and satin right now. Thanks for the chance! ;)

  5. I have to say I am totally intrigued by this product. I love ribbon and have such a hard time with bows. I usually stick with knots or cheater bows.

    ReplyDelete
  6. I love ribbon, but as I'm left-handed all the ribbon tying tutorials are difficult to follow as I have to try and reverse the instructions. This template could be just the thing for me to use, thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  7. I came here from Sharon's site. I want one of these but will wait to see if I win!!! Hope so! Thanks for the chance. I need to learn how to tie bows, I have a hard enough time tying my shoes!!!

  8. Oh wow, this looks so interesting. I LOVE all the beautiful bows I'm seeing on cards and love, love, love it when people share their secrets. I'd love to have this template. I'm not a member of your blog list (as I'm challenged when it comes to switching everything over to Google reader that someone else mentioned is a much easier way to handle all of these things. . .but I'm going to put you in my list of sites to watch for sure). Thanks for a chance to win one!!!

  12. I love ribbon but I'm all thumbs sometimes with ribbons on my cards. This sure looks like a real frustration buster to me. Sharon sent me. Hugs from Michigan

  13. Jenny, I am so glad you are revealing your secret to us. I love ribbon and I use it just about on every card I make, but only my bows on wide ribbon look all right. I have been admiring your perfectly arranged tiny bows and every time I give narrow ribbon a try I just miserably fail, cause my fingers get in the way. Thanks for sharing your little secret.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I have this!! I have this!!! except, as Sharon mentions, the manufacturer's instructions leave alot to be desired... so my bows have not been coming out as nicely as yours. I would love to have a different perspective on how best to use the template. The nice thing too about this bow maker is that it is flat!! so it easily just fits in a drawer with other things, or even in a folder. There is no clunky, chunky box or aparatus. Thanks for the encouragement... if you can do bows then I should be able to do bows!! :->

  15. Hi! My name is Mary and I'm a ribbon addict! I'm not looking for a 12 step program. I can't meet the requirements. Step one: Admit you have a problem. Okay. Step Two: You must want to correct the problem. I don't want to correct the problem! LOL Love the gorgeous bows and can't wait to see the tutorial on using the bow maker. -Mary R. (scs #1volunteer)

  49. I'm just getting into card-making and tying nice looking bows is something I haven't quite been able to achieve, especially with wider width ribbons. On Sharon Johnson's site, she raves about your ribbon-tying tool, and even if I don't win one, I may just have to order one! Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Oh my goodness! I want one of those so badly. I'll wait to order until it is confirmed that I didn't win. I'm not usually on the lucky list! lol I love love love ribbon added to cards whether it is just a line, tied, or bows and bows and bows. Thanks for the chance!

  63. Oh my goodness! I think this is the neatest thing! Thanks for the chance to win one! When my daughter was small (she's 18 now) I would make hair bows to match everything she wore. I have probably the equivalent of a 50 gallon drum of ribbon!

    ReplyDelete
  64. My two cents about ribbon: I adore ribbon and love to include it on cards. And since most of my cards are feminine in feel, it's generally not an issue. But occassionally I make a masculine birthday card and want to use ribbon. Most of the time my husband is firmly set against ribbon of any kind on a masculine card. But, if it's earth tone and just runs straight behind a layer of cardstock...I may still get his approval.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I came from Sharon's blog as well, and I think this little contraption is the bomb! I am so bow challenged, it takes me forever to get one tied and put on a card, I am exhausted when I finally am done!

    ReplyDelete
  66. What an odd looking tool. I need this! I am bow challenged.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Wow! This is wonderful. Of course, a bow makes all packages looked finished, whether it is a real present or a beautiful card.

    Thanks for the chance to win one of these great tools.

    ReplyDelete
  68. At times I have spent more time on a ribbon than the rest of the card. I can tell I NEED the Bow Maker Tool and some of my friends do too! Love your ribbon sample cards. TFS

    ReplyDelete
  69. Hi Jenny,

    I have always admired your beautiful little bows and thought you were super clever and that you spent hours making them but now I find it's down to a Bow Maker!! LOL. Well done!! Would love to win a Bow maker because as they say to complete a pretty card it all comes down to the finer details.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Wow! Those bows are great. I need one of those bow makers!!!

    ReplyDelete
  71. I love all the ribbon over at Sharon's site. Your bows are gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  72. I haven't been making cards for very long and am just now attempting to add ribbons to my creations. I love ribbons on gift packages and can make decent bows on them, but the small card bows are much more difficult to me. Thanks for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I love ribbons too. I will check out your bow maker. The little ones are a bit of a challenge lately for me with my little chubby fingers. But, they add a lot to cards, I think. You have some great ribbons! Thanks for sharing. I love your blog and I already subscribe to it!

  76. I also came from Sharon's blog and am so glad to have discovered your blog. Your work is beautiful and I love your bows. I love ribbon but usually just tie a faux bow as my bow making skills leave a lot to be desired, this little gismo looks like it will do the trick. Thanks for the chance to win one.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I LOVE ribbon. Several years ago I switched to fabric ribbon ONLY for wrapping gifts -- even at Christmas. A girl can never have too much ribbon (just not enough space to store it). A bow template would be a great addition!

  83. I just got the hang of tying my ribbon in a nice knot. I have never even attempted tying a bow! I didn't know such a gadget existed. I really like the way ribbon adds color and dimension to cards and use it on almost every one I make so a bow maker would be fantastic. What great blog candy!

I have got to have one of these! I will trade you my stove for one!!

  121. Wonderful tool, I have had mine for years and it has seen a lot of use. I have tied 1000's of bows.

  128. I have serious bow envy and this tool looks like it satisfies the need (lol). I love the look of the stacked ribbon and bows...silk and satin...or gingham and solid. Thanks for the chance of this awesome blog candy.

  129. This product looks awesome...I can't tie bows. I love fibers...lace, ribbon, ... they add a level of texture that is so playful or elegant. I need to pop over and check out Sharon's ribbon. I have been looking for some pretty and reasonable ribbons. I haven't been able to find much selection yet. Thanks, Con.

  131. Hi Jenny.

  133. Wow! I tend to shy away from ribbon b/c I cannot tie bows. This would be fabulous!

  134. I LOVE ribbon but hate bows...my Mom always said it was because I am left handed!! I would love to see this thing work, and see if my two left hands can make a good bow!! Thanks for the chance!!

    ReplyDelete
  135. I found your page from Sharron's. I would LOVE to be able to easily and consistently make bows! I love them when I can get one to look nice, but they're so much time and effort to get there! Thank you for a chance to win one of these!

  136. I'm a ribbon fool. Cry me a river, I'll tie you a bow! Yup, gotta have some ribbon, yarn, cord, fur, or fiber around everything. Thanks.

  137. My ribbon comment is....I have enough ribbon to "choke a horse." Thanks for the opportunity to win this jewel to make my ribbons come alive!!

  138. I have tons of ribbon but usually just opt to tie a knot. Sometimes I have one of my kids come over and use their finger to hold down the knot to help out. I've tried switching the ends after the first knot, but my bows still don't come out too great. Thanks for the chance to improve my bow-life!

  139. Hi!
    I just came over from JerriKay's site and loved the ribbon bow she made. I liked yours as well - never have tied one at the end of thr ribbon like you did - definitely something to try - thanks for offering the blog candy.

    ReplyDelete
  140. The bow-easy looks very interesting! I had not heard of it until today. I use ribbon on most of my cards and would love to have one of these to help making bows a little easier. I think a tutorial would be needed to understand how to use the template.
    Thanks for the chance to win a bow-easy!

  141. I can't wait to see the how to video tutorial. I can never seem to get my bows to lie properly. This is fantastic! Thanks for sharing & for the opportunity to win one:)

  142. Oh, my goodness! Do I ever need one of your bow makers? My friend and I found 4 spools of ribbons at a yard sale and each has over 1,000 yards (we both think the seller said 10,000 yds each!). So please enter me in your drawing for the free bow maker. Thanks!

  147. I came over from Sharon's blog too. I'm really curious about this new tool. I'm going to get one and while I'm at I 'should' buy some ribbon. I used to do a lot of silk ribbon embroidery and I love the 'hand' of it. Thanks for sharing - Nimmy

  149. Gosh this is wonderful. This tool will help as my hands are so stiff with arthritis that tying ribbon to make bows is so hard, and I love using colorful ribbon as an accent. I would use it more if I could find a way to tie bows like yours. Thanks for the chance to win a tool as we dont' have these stores in Dallas!

  150. What a cool little gadget! Ribbon is my favorite and most used embellishment on just about all my creations... your bows are lovely!

  151. Looks like a great tool to take my bow-making up a notch! Seems that I hardly ever make a card without ribbon - so this would be great! Thanks for the opportunity.

  153. I have way too much ribbon, just love everything about it until it comes to making a bow. They never turn out the same way and take too much fussing. I'd love to win this tool to help with my bows! Thanks for the chance.

    I LOVE ribbon, so this will be a "must have" tool! Thanks for the chance of winning it! It's great that the wider ribbon is now being used on cards - so many more possibilities.

  155. I thought I made decent bows until I saw these babies!! Gotta have one!!
    I'm new to your blog and can't believe how much I've missed! Your work is awesome. Thanks so much for sharing!

  158. At last.....help with making beautiful bows as I see on many cards gals have created. I'm looking forward to working with this 'new' tool.

    ReplyDelete
  159. O my word, look at how many people are here :). These are beautiful bows, something I do not know how to make. I must get me one of these.

    ReplyDelete
  160. I was one of the lucky ones to order from Joan BEFORE she sold out - but I wouldn't mind winning one from you. I have a friend that would love to have one - but is on disability so has to watch her pennies. I think I'm going to love this product - I could NEVER tie bows - they always came out 'UPSIDE DOWN'. The best I could get was when I turned the card upside down and tied the bow that way. I love that the tails are both behind the bow when you use this device. I can't wait!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  161. I don't ever put bows on my cards because I can't ever get them to look nice. I definitely need one of these Bow Easy tools. The satin bows I've seen made with it look so luscious and pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  162. As I am getting older my fingers are more challenged making a ribbon bow This gadget is intriguing.

    ReplyDelete
  163. Just been on Sharons blog and picked up the news about bows.
    I love, love ribbon but usually just tie a knot because I need 3 hands to tie a decent bow!! This gadget seems just the thing .... thanks for the chance to win one.

    ReplyDelete
  164. I would soooo love to win one of these!!! I have tried my heart out trying to get a good bow but no avail....thus...still using the faux bow technique. I am so addicted to ribbon it isn't even funny! lol! Thanks so much for a chance to win one of these babies!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  165. I love using ribbon and bows on my cards. There is nothing like it. I have not yet dabbled with fibers, but I just don't get the same feeling about using fibers as I do ribbon. I'd love help making bows and will be looking for the tutorial. I may be in the market for the gadget to help me out... Thanks-

    ReplyDelete
  166. I would love to win this bow easy If you ever seen my bows you would give me one in a heart beat!!!

  168. Something new and so needed by the masses! I love ribbon enough that it's now stored in 3 places in my workroom AND a closet in the guest room. Yes, I use it often, but always seem to buy more so as 'not to run out.' TFS and providing an opportunity to win the 'magic' template.

    ReplyDelete
  169. Where was this treasure when I was tying bows for gift baskets???? I would create a "masterpiece" and then have to finish it with a bow and the frustration that ensued usually took all of the fun out of it!! But this, this looks to good to be true but, it obviously works...your creations prove it! Thank you for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  170. Just hopped over from Sharon's blog and all I can say is that Ribbon is an addiction and there never seems to be enough. LOVE it! :)

    ReplyDelete
  171. I have a huge stash of ribbon and keep buying more but don't use it as often as I should. I am intrigued at this little gadget and would love to see how it works.

    ReplyDelete
  172. Wow, a small gadget, easy to store and ship, that might actually do something we all seem to need! Amazing! I am getting all nostalgic when I think of ribbon being something that was once so special and prized, and now is often cast-off and discarded (I am often the one caring for ribbon from packages that other folks seem not to care about...) My young daughters seem to be captivated by ribbon, and I am now joyous in doling it out to be used in their hair, for their dolls, and in their own crafting.

    Sharing the ribbon joy just makes it better!

    Thanks for the chance to win!
