Click on video above to play!

As I promised during yesterday’s post, today I’m sharing simple tips on how to tie a knot with ribbon.  Knots are definitely one of my favorite finishing touches on my paper crafting projects and having a neat and tidy one is essential!  I hope you learn a little something new!

Tame that ribbon!  Here’s my Tie a Pretty Bow Video Tutorial I from a previous post!


  1. Thank you for this video Mary, I can see now that the trick is to pull only the left side of the ribbon for a perfectly flat little knot.
    Have a fabulous weekend.

  2. Thanks, Maria! I think there are many people just getting introduced to the art of paper crafting and I want to be sure they have the basics, like tying knots and bows. Some of the tips help seasoned stampers take their craft up a notch, too!

  3. It helps me to remember to do just the opposite of what I would do to close a jar. (For a jar I would LEFTY LUCY / RIGHTY TIGHTY) So that means I LEFTY TIGHTY and RIGHTY LUCY my ribbon. SORRY…..that’s how my brain works.

  4. quick and easy! thanks 🙂

  5. Oh, Kadie . . . You have now enlightened me on the Lefty Lucy and Righty Tighty trick! Thanks!

  6. Hi Mary,
    again a big “Wow” to you… Thanks for this video – very helpful!
