THANKS TO LYNDA FOR THIS TIP.

This is for when you want to have a ribbon coming from top to bottom or side to side over your cardstock with a bow or knot in it. It's much less wasteful than cutting a length of ribbon and making your bow or knot, then cutting off all the excess.

Get hold of each end of the piece of ribbon and tie your bow or knot (if you're tying a bow, you may need to pin the ribbon down while you tie it). Place the bow/knot against the cardstock, in the position you want it to be. Trim the ribbon at either end, leaving a half-inch or so to wrap round and stick behind the cardstock. You're left with a complete length of ribbon and no bits to throw away!
