Default Re: Basic Bow with NO tails?

For my knots, I use 7/8 inch ribbon. It works best with stiffer type ribbons. I put a thin amount of hot glue on about 5-6 inches of ribbon that I have cut. Then I quickly fold it in half and push down hard to get all seams together and glued well. Turn your 5 inch length into an "awareness ribbon," like you see with pink for cancer, red for aids, etc. (I hope that makes sense...) Then take the end that is furthest back and pull it up through the loop. I think that it makes a really nice knot. Then trim the ends to the correct size and attach however you want.

Taking pics right now...
