and as hair bow toppers. We love the flower bow, so much our Mini Bowdabra packaging has a flower bow used as an embellishment for a gift card.

To make the Mini Bowdabra Flower Bow you will need:

Instructions:

1. Begin by cutting an 18” piece of Bowdabra Bow Wire and fold it in half and lay it into the Mini Bowdabra. Fold the ends under the Mini Bowdabra to keep it out of the way.

2. Cut three pieces of ribbon. We cut ours approximately 6? long.

3. Next, cut the ends of the ribbon into a soft point. To cut the ribbon fold it in half and at an angle with the scissors pointing down cut each side.
