1. Tie A Piece Of Ribbon Or String Around Your Box Or Package
How to tie a traditional, simple bow using a sort of thread or ribbon. Simply tuck your preferred ribbon beneath the object, pull it around the sides, and secure it with a one-handed knot on top. You’re good to go as long as the knot in the center and the left and right ends are connected.
a. When making a bow to go on top of a package, loop the ribbon under it, bring the ends together over it, then tie them together so the ends are of equal length.
b. Alternately, attempt to tie a bow with a piece of ribbon that is not fastened to a package or object. Make a knot in the middle of the ribbon, balancing the lengths of the left and right sides.
2. Make A Loop With The Left Side Of The Ribbon
With the ribbon’s left side, create a loop. Create a “C”-shaped loop by curling the ribbon on the left side over itself. To secure the loop, pinch it between your thumb and forefinger. For a polished appearance while tying a ribbon, make sure the loop is smooth and not twisted.
3. Create A Second Loop On The Right Side Of The Ribbon
Create a second loop with the ribbon from the right-side as you hold the left loop between your left thumb and forefinger. To repeat your previous “C”-shaped loop, curl the ribbon upward.
4. Tie The 2 Loops Together To Form A Bow
Wrap the right loop around the left loop and tuck it below. Once the left and right loops are the same size, pull the right loop through. Utilize the same method you use to lace up your shoes.
5. Tighten The Bow To Secure It In Place
To make the knot in the loops’ middle more secure, pull on them. For the ideal bow appearance, make sure both loops are the same size. If the ribbon’s ends aren’t the same size, trim them with a pair of scissors to the length you want.
