Easiest Bow Ever

You'll need: Scissors, tape runner or double stick tape, stiff ribbon (fabric or seam binding 7/8 or 1 inch), card base and a cardstock mat for your image.

Cut a 3 inch piece of the ribbon and tape it to the cardstock mat.

Add adhesive to the ribbon starting 1/4 inch down from the top of the cardstock piece. Continue to run your adhesive 1/2 inch past the bottom of the ribbon (about 1 1/2 inches down from the top or the cardstock. Loop the ribbon over itself and adhere. This is the trickiest part. You want the loop above the cardstock to be slightly smaller than the width of your ribbon. You can test it by turning your cardstock piece over and laying your ribbon horizontally behind it.

Cover cardstock piece with adhesive, especially the part of the ribbon that covers the cardstock. (Don't put adhesive on the ribbon where it is above the cardstock piece.) Cut another strip of ribbon, about 2 1/2 inches long.

Mount your cardstock piece to your card base. Push your ribbon strip into the loop and center it.

Embellish your card and you are done! See my other example here.Please give it a try and post a link to your creation. I'd love to see it.

You realize therefore significantly in the case of this topic, made me for my part consider it from so many numerous angles. Its like men and women don't seem to be fascinated until

Thank you for your advice, I have a question, although. If I
realize someone who is affected by Barrett's Esophagus, should I persuade her or him to shed bodyweight ? Are normal weight-loss applications modified towards the requirements of folks with Barret's Esophagus ?
