The holiday season is the time that I make a lot of bows. I add them to presents, cards and anything else that I can. To help aid me in the bow making this holiday season, I have picked up two types of bow makers in addition to making bows using my fingers.
This wooden contraption is one that I've seen on YouTube and Amazon and it seems to be the easiest most straightforward tool for making a bows. It cost $7.00, free shipping and handling.
This plastic contraption is one that I've seen a few times but was suggested to me by my local scrap book store clerk. It was $5.49.
I of course, have learned to use my fingers to make bows. I watched YouTube videos to learn that. My fingers are free and there is no shipping and handling.
For the next week I plan on making a ton of bows and I plan on using all three contraptions to see which one makes better bows and which one is easier to use.
I plan on taking the same length of ribbon with each of these contraptions and seeing which one makes a better bow. Stay tuned for the bow escapades.
