Hello and Hello Stampers!
Since March is National Craft Month, I’ll be featuring a few “How To” projects for you to learn. These projects will be a chance for you to learn and try something new. Here’s a tutorial on how to make a bow from a fork. You can vary the size of the bow by using a smaller or larger fork. For this bow a dinner fork was used along with the FREE Sale-a-Bration 1/4″ Coastal Cabana Ribbon from the Best Year Ever Accessory Pack. So, let’s get started.
Wrap an 8 inch piece of ribbon around the dinner fork prongs.
Make sure the back piece or tail of the ribbon is longer than the front tail.
Take the back tail and wrap it around the shorter front tail.
Make sure it wraps around to the front.
Next bring the back tail through the middle of the fork.
Bring it through from the bottom front to the back.
Bring the tail around and up through the middle of the fork.
Bring it to the front.
Now just knot the two tails together, pulling tightly as you knot.
Turn the fork., because the front of the bow is on the opposite side of the knot.
Slide the bow off the fork and trim the tails at a diagonal.
And, that’s how you make a bow from a fork!
Give it a try.
