Here is an easy way, step by step to add a pretty bow to the top of your invites without having to add glue, tape or having to wrap it to make the perfect bow (that lays flat and pretty too!)

-Step 1
add 2 holes with a hole puncher at the top where you want the bow

-Step 2
Cut a ribbon 8 inches in length. My card was a 5x7. This ribbon shown is 1/2 inch wide ans cut on a pretty angle at each end.

-Step 3
While the printed side of the card is facing you, thread the ribbon through the holes so it looks like the picture. Make sure the ribbon is even on the back end.

-Step 4
flip the card over to the back. Now the kind of tricky part...take the right side of the ribbon "tassel" and place it through the LEFT hole and visa verse (see step 5 picture) Make sure you are still on the BACK SIDE of your invitation. Pull it through to the front GENTLY

-It should NOW look like the Step 6 picture

Do the same for the other side and the last picture should be your final result!

Oh, this looks really nice! I've seen a knot at the top of an invite before, but I like this "bow" even better.
