BOWDABRA1

Laura Lunsford from Crafty lawyer creates was the second designer chosen to receive a Bowdabra Mega kit in the Totally tutorials design challenge. Her design featured a an easy to make package bow that is a just the right touch for any gift!

Laura says:

If you are a crafter of any type the Bowdabra is a handy tool and easy to use.  It basically holds your ribbon for you so you can get a pretty bow very quickly.  Even a small one like I used on my box here. The little box is 2.25 inches square.  The ribbon is 1.5 ” ribbon.

You will need:

Bowdabra Bow Maker

Bowdabra Bow Wire

1 ½” ribbon in choice of color

  1. Cut the Bowdabra bow wire to 30″.  Fold the wire in half so it makes a loop and place it in the Bowdabra with the loop on one side.

  1. At this point I like to turn my Bowdabra so I can make sure my loops are even.  Lay the ribbon in the Bowdabra

  1. Fold the ribbon over and go back and forth.  I like to twist the ribbon as I pull it to the next loop.

  1. I like to make my loops smaller as I go up so the bow is nice and round on top.

  1. Scrunch the bow down using the Bowdabra Wand  (included with the Bowdabra)
  1. Pull your bow out and fluff it. I like to pull the loops in opposite directions.  That’s all there is to it! Now enjoy your pretty bow.
