Materials Needed:
• 3″ wide ribbon – grosgrain or satin ribbon
• Scissors
Mini Bowdabra
Bowdabra Hair Bow Tool and Ruler
Bow Wire and Bowdabra Wand
• Hot glue gun
• Stick-on rhinestones
• Lighter
• Hair clip
Let’s get started by cutting an 18″ piece of Bowdabra Bow Wire, folding in half and placing it into the Mini Bowdabra, tucking ends under.
Next cut 60 inches of ribbon and fold in half to find the center. Make a crease in the center and place down into the Mini Bowdabra.


Grab and crease one side of the ribbon about 6 inches from the end, making a loop and place into the Mini Bowdabra.


Grab and crease the other side of ribbon at the 6-inch mark and carry it over the first ribbon loop and down into the Mini Bowdabra, forming an X on top of the Mini Bowdabra tower.


Using the Hair Bow Tool and Ruler as your guide, position the four loops evenly. Starting with the bottom loop, make a crease in the center, pressing down into the Mini Bowdabra.


Next, Take the top loop, crease in the middle and press down into the Mini Bowdabra. The bow is over eight inches wide!


Scrunch down the loops with the Mini Bowdabra Wand.


While the bow is still in the Mini Bowdabra, take the two loose ends of the bow wire through the loop at the other end, pulling tightly up and out. Tie the wires in the back of the bow in a double knot and cut off excess.

Finishing your JoJo inspired bow


To make the finishing knot, cut a 7-inch piece of matching ribbon and fold over three times into a narrow strip


Tie into a loose knot and seal ends by running a lighter flame heat over the ends.


Run a bead of hot glue on the back of bow over the bow wire, place finishing knot on the center front of the bow, wrapping ends around. Secure with a dab of hot glue and cut off excess ribbon. Seal ends. Attach base of hair clip through the loop of finishing knot. Cut tails of bow ribbon at a slant and seal with lighter flame heat.


Decorate the JoJo inspired Bowdabra Boutique Bow with stick-on rhinestones for a sparkling effect!
