Brand New Video!…How to Tie the Perfect Bow

Be prepared….this video might change your life.
Okay.
That’s a little dramatic.
But seriously!
I’ve wanted to share this with you guys for years!
And now you’ll want to share it with your friends, your spouse, your kids….anyone!
It’s not a sewing video.

It’s something I learned in high school and I use it ALL THE TIME.
It’s my little gift to you, since I’m sure you’ve felt like this before…


It doesn’t need to be that hard!
I’m going to show you a simple way to tie a bow on a box and it works every time.
EVERY TIME.



Here’s the deal.
This method uses the proper amount of ribbon, without any waste.

There are NO knots, anywhere….so your gift actually lays flat on the bottom….and the gift-opener can untie it without using scissors.

The bow actually hangs straight, without flipping up the top.

And my favorite part….you don’t need anyone to hold their finger tight in the middle while you try to tie a bow around the gift!  In fact, you can even walk away in the middle of it and the ribbon stays in place!

I love it!
Okay. I’m excitedly rambling.
Let me just say:

  11. Dana – I LOVED this – something so simple but makes a huge difference – I always get so frustrated with my bows flopping over! By the way, I’ve been reading for years but this is the first time I’ve actually watched one of your videos. I’m so impressed with the quality of your videos, and you are just adorable! Thanks for all the hard work and amazing creativity!

  12. Dana, I love you! That just made my day and rocked my world! And just in the nick of time. Thanks so much for sharing your secret 🙂

    How did I not already know this? I’m so glad I haven’t done any Christmas wrapping yet. 🙂

  14. I have NO idea why I haven’t watched the videos before! I totally need to go back and watch them all. Your voice is lower than I expected, but very soothing. I love the way you present things! (Always loved the blog, but the videos now are awesome!) Now I am not one of those crazy people on Pinterest that pins EVERYTHING. I’m particular about what goes on my board. But I have to say THIS is on my party board. I’m going to have lots of practice with this as I wrap presents in the next few weeks!

  23. Oh my god, I don’t think you were exaggerating about it changing our lives! I’ve NEVER been able to make good bows and have always wondered how some people manage to get them perfect. Now I’m off to practice! 🙂 Lisa
