7. To make the bow for your dessert begin by cutting 18? of Bowdabra Bow Wire. Fold the wire in half and place it into the Mini Bowdabra. Cut strips of coordinating scrap ribbon and place them one at a time into the center of the Mini Bowdabra.

8. Scrunch the bow with the Mini Bowdabra Wand. While the bow is still in the Mini Bowdabra, thread the two loose ends of the Mini Bowdabra Bow Wire through the loop at the other end. Pull the Bowdabra Bow Wire tightly while the bow is still in the Mini Bowdabra. Gently pull the bow out of the Mini Bowdabra. Separate the two loose ends of the Bowdabra Bow Wire and bring them around to the back of the bow and knot. Next, use the Mini Bowdabra wire to tie the bow to glass mug with a handle. Spiral the Bowdabra Bow Wire around a pencil to create fun ringlets.
