My Rhinestone Brad Bow Tutorial

Good Morning Everyone,

I have had so many requests for a Tutorial on how I make my Rhinestone Brad Bows….so here you go……

First you need some of our wonderful Satin Ribbon from Stampin’ Up! I find that works best, and a Rhinestone Brad.

Open the Rhinestone Brad fully and place Rhinestone face down so that it is ready for your ribbon.

One more time so you have four loops…then cut with your Ribbon Scissors.

Flip over and Viola’ Instant Ribbon Bow. I attach to the Ribbon with a few glue dots. Of course you will want to fluff up your ribbon a bit, but that’s it.

I've always loved the look, but wasn't sure exactly how that was done. TFS.

This is wonderful. Can't wait to show to new stamp club members...even the old ones! Some people are just not crafty by nature and these tips hide that fact. Thanks so much.
