2.    Cut a piece of bow wire 30 inches long, fold in half and insert into the bowmaker.  You will have a loop on one side and two pieces of wire on the other.  Fold all the wires under to stay out of the way while you are making your bow.

3.    Insert the sheer ribbon in the bow maker leaving a six-inch tail.  Make a loop on the other side.  If your ribbon has a right and wrong side, twist the ribbon so that the wrong side of the ribbon is facing down as you make the loops.
