Among the comments I receive is “I love ribbon, but I can’t tie a bow”. Today’s quick tip video will provide not only tips on how to make a bow but tips on how to add ribbon to your handmade cards. And to make it even more resourceful, I’m showing you how to tie with the trickiest of ribbons – satin!
The “finishing touch” on a card is often the accessory. While I love rhinestones and pearls, ribbon is right up there at the top of my list. But if you aren’t careful, you can waste adding it to your handmade cards. Today’s video will also provide tips on how to maximize your ribbon, saving at least 4″ per card! I’ll also provide a tip on creating a sliding ribbon knot. The sliding ribbon knot just might change your world! 😆
The completed card featured in today’s video, along with the supplies I used, is posted below. Be sure to scroll down to see it.

I’ve been receiving an influx of orders from customers who have selected “no contact” when creating their online ordering account. When you select “no contact”, then proceed to place an order, your identity is completely blocked. Because of this, I’m unable to provide any of my rewards because I don’t know who should receive them.
The picture below indicates how the boxes should be checked to avoid placing a “no contact” order.
