QUICK BOW TUTORIAL with Lisa Carroccio (The Domestic Diva)
Here’s a quick & easy Bowdabra Tutorial …
Get out your junky craft scissors and some florist wire. Cut a piece about 12 inches long.
Place the wire through the center of the Bowdabra.
Leaving 12_ for the tail of the bow, cinch ribbon between the holder.
Make a loop and twist it away from you…then place in between the holder.
Make as many loops as you want as long as you have the same amount of loops on each side. I usually do 6 or 8 loops in total.
Cut the ribbon leaving another 12 inch ribbon tall.
Cross the wire and twist tightly. Then fluff your bow.
And if you don’t dovetail the ends of the ribbon, everyone will think you are an amateur…
Fold the ribbon end in half lengthwise (do not crease it). Cut across at an angle to form the dovetail end.
