Zutter Bow-it-All Tutorial * Multi-Loop Triple Layer Bow with Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello there fellow ribbon and bow lovers.  I’m back with a new Bow-it-All V2.0 Video.  Today I will be making Multi-Loop Triple Layer Bows.

My card has a double-loop triple layer bow that is the perfect size for an greeting card.

With all the extra peg holes on the new Bow-it-All V2.0, you can make these bows in a very wide variety of sizes from very large for a wreath or other home dec project, to small enough for a card.
Here is my video tutorial:

Have you noticed that all of my recent cards feature summer vacation?  That’s because I need one.  Like NOW……. 

Also, our current RRR Challenge theme is Summer Vacation.  Why not head over and join in?

Here is a close up of my bow which is made with 5/8″ Sheer Ombre Kiwi/Watermelon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you’ll give this bow a try if you have a Bow-it-All V2.0.  

Don’t have one yet?  What are you waiting for??!!!

Bow-it-All V2.0 Video Tutorial * Mastering the Locking C-knot for Righties AND Lefties and a fast and easy card

Hi everyone.  I’m back today with another Bow-it-All V2.0 video tutorial to review two things that give people the most trouble.  I will be reviewing the locking c-knot and I’m demonstrating for both lefties and righties.

As I state in the video below, it is NOT mandatory that you learn this knot.  If you just can’t get it, but your bows are beautiful and they stay tied, keep doing what you are doing.  It’s a great knot to use if you can though, since it is very difficult to untie once it’s tied and tightened.

I also have a quick card to share.  This is an all-occasion card that I can use for whatever arises.  All I have to do is quickly add an appropriate sentiment to the inside of the card.

This is another card using a great digi sheet from one of my favorite etsy sellers – Cobra Graphics.  There are so many great options available, and by having these digi’s on hand, I can quickly make up a card even with the very limited time I have.

My bow is a simple double-layer bow made from 5/8″ White Delicate Stitched Satin using my Bow-it-All V2.0.  This is one of my favorite ribbons to work with on the Bow-it-All as it performs wonderfully for any type of bow.  I also added a piece of 3/8″ White Double-faced Satin above the scallop punch around the middle of the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Zutter Bow-it-All V2.0 Video Tutorial – Making Fun Fiber Flower Embellishments

Hi everyone.  I’m back today with another fun Bow-it-All V2.0 Tutorial.  Today we are making something a little different – Fiber Flowers!

We’ve been making gorgeous bows with our Bow-it-All V2.0, but now I’m off to see what else I can use it for.

These gorgeous flowers are so fast and easy to make and they make a great card embellishment, pin or even a hair clip!

I’m sharing my fiber flower tutorial at:
Pursuit of a Functional Home – Pin it Monday Hop #57

Here is my video tutorial.  You’ll be amazed how easy and fast these great fiber flowers come together.

I used a fiber flower as an embellishment on the card below.

I also threaded some Capri Blue Satin with Grosgrain Edge Ribbon through the Spellbinders A Gilded Life Die and tied a perfect little bow with my Bow-it-All Tool.

For this fun fiber flower rosette, I made the fiber flower and created the other layers with some of the ribbons in the RRR May Ribbon Club Assortment.  I show how the rosette was created in the video above.

Not a member yet?  Why not enroll today and begin with the Vintage Patriotic themed May Assortment which contains 9 styles and a total of 17 yards of ribbon and lace.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you like the video today.
