    Hi Mary thank you so much for your posts. Really appreciate you sharing your skills and knowledge as I am very much a novice to the world of card making.

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

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

  5. quick and easy! thanks 🙂

  6. 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.

  7. 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!

  8. 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.
