Thanks, Gina - always invaluable information! I think I would call this video "Creative Bows." It doesn't look like cheating after all :D -- I esp love the little knots you tie onto the main ribbon.

Another neat way to make a cheater's bow, and one that works particularily well on wider ribbon, is cut a length of ribbon which will go all the way across the front of the card, with a bit to spare for glueing to the back, plus a bit more, but don't attach it to the card yet. Now cut another piece which is as long as you would like the bow to be from end to end if you were measuring the length from the end of one loop across to the end of the other loop as if the bow were tied. Now take the longest piece of ribbon and tie as if you were going to make a knot in it. Then put the shorter piece through the loop of the knot. Finish off tying the knot, and as you are tightening it and move the short piece around so it lays flat against the long piece. Then tighten up the long piece, and do a bit more adjusting to get the "bow" just the way you want it. It is easy to move the bow if you want it a bit more to one or the other side by just loosening the long piece, moving the knot over on the long piece and repositioning the shorter piece in the spot you want it. I hope you can understand my explanation. It is easier to understand by doing instead of saying.
