Bowdabra® cheer bow tools

Once you have gathered up your supplies you are all set to go. I started by cutting my piece of ribbon for my tails. I cut my ribbon about 9 inches long and pointed both ends of the ribbon. I placed the Bowdabra® Hair Bow Tool on top of the Mini Bowdabra® Tool. Then cut a piece of the Bowdabra® Bow Wire and place in the slot. Then I did a little crinkle fold in my ribbon and centered it into the Mini Bowdabra® tool. 13820393_10207226349523748_294836401_n

Next I cut about 12 inches of the ribbon for my loops. I made a circle with the ribbon, did a crinkle fold in the middle and placed into the Mini Bowdabra® tool. 13650399_10207226349163739_1057882816_n

Now you grab the Bowbabra® Bow Wire and pull it tight around your bow. I turn my wire around to the back of the bow, pull tight and then tie it in a nice knot. I know I’m going to be hot gluing this bow later so the knot doesn’t have to be perfect.


Next, attach your hair clip

Now you are ready to attach your bow to your hair clip. I just used my regular glue gun and glue sticks. Added a drop of glue to the back of the bow and then held it onto the clip….done!!
