  1. Pull the Bowdabra Bow Wire tightly while the bow is still in the Mini Bowdabra. Then, gently pull the bow out of the Mini Bowdabra. Now, separate the two loose ends of the Bowdabra Bow Wire and bring them around to the back of the bow. To finish, tie off the bow, pinch the Bowdabra Bow Wire securely against the bow. Then twist the bow 4 to 6 times in a clockwise direction. For the last step, hot glue an embellishment to the front of the bow. Trim away excess wire. Using glue dots attach the Mini Bowdabra Bow and a pink grosgrain breast cancer awareness ribbon to the magnet.
