Another Bow Making Tool

I'd like to show you another kind of bow making on monday. For this you also need a tool.
I use a very simple one. Made of 3 wooden sticks. 2 are cut in the same length and one is shorter. Then the sticks are just held together with adhesive tape.
I prefer the textile version. In Germany it's called Lassoband. Unfortunately I haven't the slightest idea how it's called in english - sorry. I made a photo, so can see it better. It a VERY strong tape that holds the sticks perfectly.
There are other methods and tools. If you like to make a lot of bows, it could be convenient to have a wooden board with nails. But you have to cut the nails, so you can remove the bows from them. The board should be secured with clamps on a table.
But I'm lazy and make only a few ribbons at a time. So the simple version is just fine for me. And it's always handy and needs almost no place.

  1. That is a great idea, I imagined people who can make tiny, perfect bows are just not as fumble-fingered as I am, now I know the secret, thank you Andrea:)

  3. Liebe Andrea,
    natürlich werde ich später nachschauen, wie das Bänderbasteln weiter geht .... vielen Dank für Deine Tipps! Ich werde mich vielleicht auch mal ran wagen und hoffe, dass ich meine Finger nicht mit aufwickle.
