Well, today we are going to learn! I was taught a year ago, and now I want all my gifts to have these darling bows.
First, pick up a spool of festive ribbon from your local craft store. Make sure the ribbon has a
Next, bend a section of the ribbon. I find that the size in the photo works great, but you can adjust it for smaller or larger bows.
Fold the ribbon 9 times. If the ribbon has a pattern on only one side, make sure the pattern is facing right-side-up. Then, cut it off from the remaining ribbon.
Bend the bunch of ribbon in half and cut a very small v in the middle on each side.
Use some extra wire from one edge of the remaining ribbon to twist a tight knot in between the v's. Later, you can use the wire ends to tie the bow to a package or basket.
Starting on one side, pull out the inner-most loop, twist it clockwise, and open it up.
Repeat this step until all loops are pulled out and opened up on both sides.
And there you have created a fanciful bow to dress up any holiday gift, basket, or decor.
Happy bow making!
