For an impressive finishing touch to any Mother's Day gift, tie a bow
! Our friends at ModCloth show us how...
If you've gone through the trouble of picking out a present you might as well take an extra few seconds to tie a bow
onto the wrapped gift. After all, Mom deserves a little more effort! (Especially because she'll probably take 20 minutes to remove it from the package, to "save for a future occasion.")
To tie a bow into a traditional rosette, it's just a matter of pleating ribbon back-and-forth, then gathering. Using wired ribbon is key, since it'll hold its shape as you tie a bow. For the complete how-to (along with two other alternative fancy bows), check out the ModCloth blog
