I taught this in a class at
Memories of Time this past Wednesday,
and promised my students that I would
put up a video tutorial
teaching how to make the bows we made
in class, using only our fingers.

As I mentioned in class, this one is a bit
different than how I taught them,
but it is very similar and it works just
as well, so here you go:

It's produced by Jak Heath and she does an excellent
job of teaching the technique.

Thank you for stopping by to take a peak at what I've been doing!

  1. Such a sweet card and I'm sure those fortunate ladies taking your class enjoyed very minute. I wish I could have been one of them! Love the color combination of the card and the papers are so adorable. The tutorial for making the double bow is a great link. I've used my fingers for bow making for a long time and they are fun to make. Another beautiful creation!


Your comments are always appreciated! Thank you for taking the time to bless me with them.
