Tutorial For A Nautical Knot

Knots and sailing just go together like peanut butter and jelly.  So naturally when making a nautical themed card, a rope knot makes for the perfect accent.  Lalo here and today I’m sharing how to make this very simple knot to use as accents for cards.

The first step on taking this knot from “just” another knot to one that is fabulous is the rope you choose.  I’m using this very fabulous gold cording to add a little trendy, luxury to this nautical card.

(For the sake of this tutorial I’m using two different color ribbons)

You will use two pieces of rope.  First loop one of the pieces.  Then lay the other across.

Next pull the rope that was laid over the looped rope, through the center of the loop.

Pull tight and there you have a square knot.

To add it to my card I just simply glued it down and cut the ends.
