What Works Wednesday: Tiny Bows

Find instructions for this bow at ICreativeIdeas.com.

Who doesn’t need a tiny bow?  Everyone needs a tiny bow!  Put them on gifts, on cards, on name tags, pin them in your hair, pin them in your daughter’s hair, pin them on your dog…you’ll find many more uses for them when you see how easy they are to make.  And all you need is an ordinary fork!  This is genius.  Really.

Basically you use the tines of the fork to wind the ribbon through, then tie it neatly in the center and slide it off the fork.  The more times you wrap the ribbon through the tines of the fork, the more loops you get in the bow. All you have to do is search the internet for “fork bows” and you will get all sorts of pages with instructions. Handimania and ICreativeIdeas are two of them with tutorials on how to make them.
