1. SCRUNCHY BOW FOR DECORATIONS

Sandy starts with the simplest of bows, scrunching in 3 pre-cut pieces of the Bowdabra Scrunchy Ribbons in Red, Gold and Silver colors. Tied up with the Bowdabra Bow Wire and shaped out, it makes a really cute bow that can decorate any gift wrapping or home decor item. Sandy also shows how you can make a layered bow with the Scrunchy ribbons. There are several different ways you can use the Scrunchy ribbons to make quick and easy bows and all of them just take minutes.

2. STUNNING POLKA DOTTED HAIR BOW

Sandy picks up a lovely red and white polka dotted ribbon and lays it down in the Mini Bowdabra, bringing one end round to the other side to form an over-arching loop. The other end of the ribbon is now brought over that loop in an X. She scrunches in the first loop with a little mountain up and then scrunches in the 2nd one similarly.

Scrunched in, the two loops form a lovely butterfly. Sandy ties the bow up with the Bow Wire and uses the remaining bow wire to tie the bow to a ponytail holder. As a finishing touch, she wraps a piece of red sparkly ribbon, folded thrice along its length layered with a two rows of Silver Rhinestone Mesh ribbon around the middle of the polka dotted bow.

Sandy takes two pieces of dove-tailed gold netted ribbon and places them in an X in the Large Bowdabra. She adds the sparkly red ribbon bow and tops it up with a glittering green ornament. Tied up and shaped out, it makes a gorgeous, glittering bow that can be used on your tree, decorations, or gift wrapping for Christmas in July.

4. SPARKLING SILVER AND BLUE BOW

Sandy takes a few pieces of blue netting and lays them down into the Large Bowdabra and adds some pretty silver picks and some glittery, sparkly blue ribbon to give the bow’s color combination greater depth. Sandy shapes out the bow and attaches a gorgeous silver clip on to make a startling silver and blue bow for decor.
