Fun New Tool

So I got this fun new tool from a fellow blogger, and I just had to share it.
Just a little background here. I remember when I was little. My mom used to have us hold out our fingers to help her tie her bows. I loved to do it. I thought it was so neat that you could make a bow that way. My son?......Well not so much. He hates it. Because I pull the ribbon tight and he just lets his fingers slack inward. So I make him do it again. And, what am I supposed to do when no one is home to lend me a couple fingers? Lol.
Hence the reason, when I saw this on Sarah's YouTube Channel, I HAD to have it. Seriously. I couldn't wait to get it. And, I was surprised to find when I did that an extra set of smaller holes and dowel pieces had been added to make tiny bows--oh yeah. I love it.
Anyway, I didn't waste my time making a tutorial. You can see Sarah's video here.
I've only had time to try it out a little bit. And I did manage to make a card tonight with a tiny bow on it. I can tell this baby will get some use. So happy to have made this purchase!
I'll post my card tomorrow. My camera is dead right now, and my phone is taking some awful pictures inside. But I wanted to make a post on my blog because it is being severely neglected. So I thought I would share my new toy with y'all.
