The morning seemed to drag as we waited until 2pm, the time we were told to phone. Lots of busywork. I decided to wrap my mother's birthday present. The box is quite large, so I decided to use florists ribbon instead of organza. The bow looked lame, which surprised me as my bows normally look quite professional.
Youtube to the rescue. I learned how to make pompom type bows with polyester ribbon. I probably should have split the ribbon in half lengthwise, as the ribbon I have is much much wider than anyone on Youtube was using. My attempt compared to the video I was following, is rubbish. However, as polyester ribbon bows go, it's fine.
It's not really fine enough to share though,
Instead, here's a pic of the card I made for my mother. It's a Lady's Slipper Orchid.
