I love gift giving and always enjoy the wrapping of the gift as much as the making of it. I like to play with wraps and papers, ribbons and bows but it can be tricky to get it looking ‘just right’. Tying the perfect bow can leave you cross and frustrated – which is no fun! So today I’m sharing my updated video on how to tie the perfect bow. It is something my mom taught me years ago and I am forever grateful. There are several different ways to tie a bow, but this method is so simple and works every time. The trick to keeping your bow straight is in how you wrap the center knot around your first loop. If you wrap under the loop, your bow will be crooked. If you wrap over the top of the loop, it will always be straight – simple! The very first video I shot showing this technique was a little speedy and so we have shot a new, less quick video which I am sharing today. I do suggest you watch it through a few times to get the gist: TOP OVER TOP. That is the secret sauce! I have also prepared a photo tutorial that may help along with the video. Let me know what you think and whether these two visuals are helpful in teaching you how to tie my version of the perfect bow. Cheers! ~ Lia
