"How To" Tie A Bottle Knot

Hi Everyone!
I’ve got a cool little trick for you today. It’s how to tie a Bottle Knot with your Stampin’ Mist Bottle. So get your Stampin’ Mist Bottle and follow along.
  • Take your desired ribbon and bring it around the top part of the bottle. Cut end on the left. ( I do not cut a length but work from the roll) It saves ribbon.
  • Cross the piece in your left hand over the ribbon.

  • Bring the cut piece up through the bottom and pull straight up and down with the tails.
  • Now bring the top (cut end)down and tie into a knot.
  • Pull both ends to the sides
  • Pull ribbon off bottle and this is what it should look like. Loop and two ends.

  • Measure  to card and cut just enough to attach to the back of the mat with tape/Mono.
  • Now make a cut into the loop at a diagonal

  • Almost there… pull both ends to the sides, then trim ends…..and there you have it. Attach to the back of your mat and attach to the card base.
