Ribbon Bow Tutorials

Everything You Need to Know How to Create the Perfect Bows

Beautiful ribbon bows are a simple way to brighten up the ambiance of a gift as well as the mood of the receivers! Have you taken the time to wrap a gift beautifully with paper but wanted to make a perfect bow to enhance the wrapping? I've often heard people say how hard it is to create multi-ribbon or decorative bows. Due to requests I frequently spend extra time focusing on ribbon techniques during on-site workshops.

I believe that this is one significant skill to learn and once you have the basics down, not only you can elevate a simple gift wrapping to an amazing presentation, but also increase design possibilities by the thousands.

In this course, I have selected lessons that can help you learn the basic techniques of creating professional ribbon bows as well as learning concepts of improvising designs so you can start creating your own style of beautiful ribbon bows.

This course contains years' worth of knowledge gained from being a gift wrapping artist and I assure you that by learning and practicing these techniques, you'll be able to create amazing ribbon bows like a professional!

What do you need to prepare for taking this course?

It's ideal to have the following materials. If it's difficult to collect everything at the beginning, you can start with one type of ribbon to take lessons and practice the techniques, then eventually practice using different types of ribbons. It's also a good idea to practice using different widths of ribbons.

  • Scissors
  • Boxes
  • Satin Ribbon
  • Sheer Organza Ribbon
  • Grosgrain Ribbon
  • Wired Ribbon
  • Paper Ribbon
  • Single Faced and Double Faced Ribbon (Please make sure you have both styles)

* You'll learn more about these ribbons in the course

Hi, I'm Shiho! Thank you so much for taking my online gift wrapping courses!

I have been a professional gift wrapping artist for almost 20 years, providing my services to individuals and corporations, conducting workshops and demos, and creating instructional videos.

I believe that the art of gift wrapping can transform gift-giving opportunities into priceless memories.

A gift by itself is a material object, a thing. The act of gift wrapping helps to turn that object into an experience, a memorable moment. Material things can make someone happy but it's the overall experience that tends to create something more meaningful and longer lasting.

I've witnessed how the art of gift wrapping changed people's gift-giving events to amazing experiences throughout my years as a gift wrapping artist. My previous clients and students often came back to tell me the great gift-giving experiences they had by giving beautifully wrapped gifts.

I hope that my courses will help you learn the necessary methods and techniques as well as the philosophy of the art of gift wrapping, so you could have wonderful gift-giving memories for the rest of your life.

Happy Wrapping!
