Save ribbon with this easy bow for handmade cards used on my Stampin' Up! Dear Doily card.Another reason to like this easy no-tie bow is for those who always need or wish they had a third hand to get the ribbon tied tightly enough so the bow doesn’t slip. This bow isn’t going anywhere.

A 1/4″ circle punch is the secret to my easy bow. You probably have one or can pick one up on your next shopping trip. If you rather order one, I found an inexpensive 1/4″ circle punch on Amazon.
