LARGE ELEGANT CHAIR BOW FOR WEDDING

take a long enough tie and wrap it around your chair twice to make sure you have enough length for tying it up and leaving the tails free.

After the ribbon is placed in the Bowdabra and its tails left free, Sandy takes a wide burlap ribbon and places it in the Bowdabra with sizeable folds. Sandy adds a 5-inch wide #tulle and then adds some lace to the arrangement and tops it up with a smaller, less wide #burlap. Sandy adds some smaller pieces of ribbon and floral sprays to the arrangement which by now is looking really big! As a finishing touch, she adds a piece of gold mesh ribbon.

Once the bow is tied up securely with the Bow Wire, Sandy fluffs out the loops and shapes them neatly into a bow. It turns out into a really pretty decorative chair bow, created in just about 4 minutes.

LARGE, GORGEOUS CENTERPIECE

This one is all about creating an elegant centerpiece from a large mesh, which works great for #birthdays, #weddings and just about any occasion. The shimmering mesh is pushed into the Bowdabra in neat folds and the loops are scrunched in. To prevent the mesh from popping out, Sandy keeps the Bowdabra wand placed on the arrangement to hold the mesh down and adds Angel Glitter Ribbon to the mesh in the shape of a bow.

Once the ribbons are arranged, Sandy adds some stylish lights to the bow and tops it up with beautiful flowers. The last items she adds to the bow are a ribbon bow and a large gold flower. Shaped out, it looks an absolutely stunning centerpiece, made in just 8 minutes.

CENTERPIECES

Sandy now takes up the Mini Bowdabra for making a pretty pink-and-blue centerpiece. She takes pieces of ribbon with ends cut pointed to look like leaves. An assortment of blue, pink and light pink ribbons are tied together and then twisted around. Sandy shapes out the petals and since they are wired ribbons, they stay in shape.

Sandy next puts in longer pieces of the ribbons, with dove-tailed ends into the Mini Bowdabra. She adds a patterned ribbon bow to the colored ribbons, a piece of gold scrunchy ribbon, some more ribbon pieces to create a multi-petalled bow with a rainbow of colors in it. Shaped out the bow looks like a beautiful fully bloomed flower. You can use it as a centerpiece or a table setting when placed on a plate.

STUNNING #RIBBON BOUQUET

In the Large Bowdabra, Sandy lays down a red and pink double-shaded ribbon as the tail and then puts in white tulle in folds that are longer on one side and smaller on the other. Once Sandy places the tulle, she takes the rest of the red and pink ribbon and places it into the Bowdabra in the shape of a bow. The floral spray and the flowers – roses and lilies, come in next followed by another pink and red ribbon bow.

To shape it into a beautiful bouquet, Sandy shapes out all the loops and it turns out to an absolutely stunning bouquet.
