How-To

Fold the ends of a piece of ribbon in toward the center, overlapping them; secure with fabric glue, and let dry. Flatten at center and glue to secure. Wrap a second piece of ribbon around loops at the center, gluing at back of bow.

Adjust the loops to the desired fullness. To add tails, cut notches in both ends of a length of ribbon slightly longer than the bow. Then, glue the bow on at center.
