How to make a sweet Bowdabra decorated memo pad

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today with a Bowdabra Decorated Memo Pad.  Memo pads help us keep track of all we have to do so why not give them as holiday gifts this year.

Supplies:
Bowdabra Mini Bow Making Tool
Bowdabra Bow WIre-Gold
Ribbon
Memo Pad

I found this sweet memo pad and pen and thought it would a great gift.  And I didn’t want to wrap it up so I thought I’d place it in a gift bag and create a Bowdabra decorated memo pad.

I had some leftover ribbon from another project that was just the right color, so I began by placing an 18″ length of bow wire in the Bowdabra.  Then I cut a 12″ length of ribbon and placed it in the Bowdabra.

Create 3 loops on either side, twisting the ribbon with each pass.  Use the bow wand to push the loops into the Bowdabra.
