Sandy Sandler, the creator of the Bowdabra, the world’s easiest bow maker shows how easy it is for anyone to make super cute and simple #holiday #bows and gift wrap bows within a few minutes without sew or hot glue.

1. GOLDEN GIFT PACKAGE BOW

Sandy takes a piece of golden scrap of material about 19 inches long and 8 inches wide and scrunches it into the Large Bowdabra. She takes a couple pieces of dovetailed ribbon (about 15 inches long) and lays them down into the Bowdabra to make the tails. She takes another piece of golden transluscent material, 19 inches long but thinner than the other one (about 4 inches wide) and scrunches it down too. Once tied up with the Bowdabra Bow Wire and shaped out, it turns out to be an elegant yet super simple gift wraps bow on your package or tree.

2. SUPER SIMPLE ORNAMENT

Sandy scrunches in a 28 inches long, 4 inches wide piece of material which looks attractive with multi-colored glittering circles on a gold rimmed net. She adds a ball in the middle and ties it up. Once fluffed out, it makes a cute little ornament which you can make in minutes. You can start making the ornaments from now to save yourself the last minute holiday decorations rush.

3. GOLD AND SILVER ORNAMENT

Sandy takes pieces of Bowdabra gold and silver scrunchy ribbons and scrunches them down into the Large Bowdabra. She adds two strips of Silver and Gold Rhinestone Mesh ribbon. She tops it up with another piece of gold scrunchy ribbon and ties up the arrangement. And in just a couple of minutes, you have a super cute holiday ornament ready.

4. GORGEOUS TREE TOPPER BOW

Sandy takes two strips of ribbon – the red chequered one a tad thinner and cut slightly shorter than the larger plain red ribbon. She lays them down on one over the other in the Large Bowdabra and adds a layered bow created with two longer pieces of the same set of ribbons. She adds a beautiful glitter pick to the arrangement and ties up the pile to make a gorgeous tree topper!

5. STUNNING COLOR COMBINATION BOW

Sandy takes a set of three equally long patterned ribbons in silver and purple shaded and places them exactly at the half point in the Bowdabra. She crosses the ends across each other and adds some silver flowers to make a beautiful bow for packages or wreath or centerpiece. Use it for Hanukkah or Christmas or birthday gifts or wedding!

6. SUPER CUTE RED HAIR BOW

Sandy takes a little piece of fabric ribbon and lays it down the middle in the Bowdabra. She adds another piece of red patterned ribbon and adds some beads in the center to make a beautiful hair bow which you can attach to a clip or hair band.

7. LOVELY BOW FROM A SINGLE RIBBON

Sandy uses a long piece of beautiful patterned ribbon to create a bow in the Bowdabra in large, easy loops, leaving a smaller loop for the center. She ties it up and shapes it out to make an astonishingly beautiful yet super simple bow made from wired ribbon.

8. BEAUTIFUL WREATH BOW

Sandy lays a transluscent golden piece of ribbon as the tails in the Bowdabra. She uses the rest of the ribbon to make a beautiful bow with large, quick loops and finishes it with a lovely pick in the center.
