Hi Eddie, Your perfect bow is so elegant and amazingly easy. I am a craft freak. My main craft is Quilling (an ancient paper craft). I found you on Pinterest and will continue to follow you. Thanx Christine

So beautiful and so easy!

Thank you, Eddie, for sharing this wonderful tip. My packages from now on will be AMAZING!


Hooooray! Thank you so much for getting the video back online! Truly a wonderful tutorial!

What happened to the video?!?

Can never see the Tiffany Bow video. Please repost or send. Thanks.

Any chance I could get the instructions for this perfect bow?

Hi Eddie, Oh man!!! I saved your tutorial for when I would need to wrap a special gift. Now I see you no longer have the video. Auuuugghhh, help! That was the most gorgeous bow and I loved that it just falls off with one pull! Can you please post the instructions again? Please please...pleeeeese?
If you can....THANK YOU, from the bottom of my heart!

Help. Please post your perfect bow tutorial. Thank you so much.

Where can I find a tutorial for this? The video is no longer available! The bow is beautiful and I really want to learn to do this, please.

I love this bow! So beautiful! I had to include it in my Christmas post on my blog.


So, two years later and this vid has TOTALLY rescued me! Thank-you thank-you! x

you're such a rockstar. I'm going to be studying this as I wrap my gifts this year!

Thank you so much!!!


Gorgeous! Thanks Eddie!

Thank you for sharing the video. I loved your wrapping tips and will definitely use them this Christmas season.
I also shared a link to your video, as part of my Handmade Holiday project (http://sas-does.blogspot.com/2011/11/b-is-for-bows.html) Hope it's OK with you.

What a gorgeous gift! You make it look SO easy! Pining and will be watching many more times, I'm sure! Thanks so much for sharing your secrets! :)

HI Eddie, this is perfect!! All the tips I wish I had known years ago!! Thank you Thank you!

Magnificent. Love it. Thanks for the tips.

I've been waiting to use this bow technique and i just did! our gift will be the rave of the party :) thanks eddie!

Wonderful tutorial. Thanks! Hope you had a great Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Thanks for the info! That's easier than I thought.. Don't you just love youtube? I embedded a clip of my local tv show too... great minds think a like! ;)

Thanks, Eddie, you're THE BEST!

So beautiful. Thank you for the instructions. You made it look so easy.

Why O Why didn't a check out this video before Christmas???

Brillant video! And you are so kind to share your vast range of knowledge with us! This is another soul who can not tie a bow to save her life! Been practising with your instructions -- and at least I managed to get the ribbon under the box -- which then shot across the table, fell off and was mobbed by the cats. LOL! I will have to stick to simply stuffing the present in bags and baskets! LOL!

Much love to you and Jaithan in this Holiday Season -- and always! Can't wait to see your table for New Years!

Thanks so much! You make that look so easy. Going to try that out this morning~in between a million other things. Wishing you a joyeous Christmas filled with the laughter of those you love.

Making a package pretty is half the fun of giving it, I love using beautiful satin ribbons like you did here, how beautiful!!

Hope you two have a very merry Christmas and a wonderful New Years!!!

Great video. I am obsessed with wrapping and bows so this was VERY helpful!

Eddie, I have been making what some think are great bows for years and have never seen this done.I am going to try this!Thank you and you are a very good teacher.I loved your ribbon.Is that your signature wrap.Colin Cowey says we should all have a signature wrap.His is chocolate brown and gorgeous. Mine is a little more whimsical,I have a black and white awning stripe .I would love to see the packages under your tree all wrapped and be-ribboned.xoxo,Kathysue

Love it! I can never tie a bow nicely! Thanks and Merry Christmas:)

Damn, now I have, HAVE to "re-bow" all my gifts! I love you, but this should have been posted 2 weeks ago (and evey day since)

Thanks and keep up the good work

Ah, I always do it just a smidge differently, but I think I'll try your way. Thanks!

How Cool Was That! You have taught me a new trick! I used to have a florist, and always added the bow onto the wrapped ribbon! I love it! Your video was so great! Have a Wonderful Holiday!

Oh my gosh! I want to unwrap all my presents and start over with this bow!!! I can't wait to try this the next time I wrap a gift! Thanks, Eddie and blessings to you in 2009! Merry Christmas!


HUH!! Who knew it was so easy. I have to go make bows now so please excuse me!

That was a fantastic tutorial! Thanks so much! Keep 'em coming :-)

Wow. Oh my goodness! I just found your blog and love it. What started as a "quick, check a few things online moment" ended up with a good long session reading your archives! I can't wait to add this to my list of blogs I can't go without checking! Thank you so much for the tutorial too! Enjoy your Holidays!

TAKE A BOW!!!!!!!
What a wonderful video.....
Thank You Eddie!!

Merry Christmas from California. Loved the video and I'm really impressed that you seem to know exactly what we want even before we do! What will you do with January?

wonderful tutorial! Makes me feel like I severely fell short on my gift wrapping this year! Maybe I'll go raid my ribbon stash and start fluffing! I just found your blog and love it! Merry Christmas and all the best for 2009!


I just want to wish you both a Merry Christmas. I am sure next year will be even bigger for you. You are a major talent and have no where to go but up. Your ideas are always fun and instructional. You are a force to be reckoned with. Penny

Oh Eddie, Thank you so much! I've always wanted to know how to make those beautiful bows.

Merry Christmas Eddie & Jaithan!! Can't wait to continue reading your fantastic posts in 2009!! All the best for the season!
