FUN WEDDING BOW WITH KORKER RIBBONS

Sandy scrunches in a piece of sparkling tulle in the Mini Bowdabra and adds 4 pieces of pre-curled korker ribbons. As a finishing touch she adds two slices of Gold Rhinestone Mesh Ribbon to get that bejewelled look, apt for a wedding ponytail holder hair bow.

LACE AND ROSE HEADBAND BOW

Sandy places a headband in the Large Bowdabra and makes a bow over it with a yard-long wired ribbon with the fold-and-twist-and-loop. She puts in a floral pick made from a burlap rose and flowers and scrunches in a pretty lace-ribbon over it. Tied up and shaped out, it makes a beautiful wedding headband hair bow.

GOLD WRIST CORSAGE

Sandy scrunches in a piece of sparkling tulle and over it comes 14 inches of gold scrunchy ribbon. She adds two pieces of zebra ribbons, dovetailed on both ends. She adds a small piece of Gold Rhinestone Mesh Ribbon over it. Fluffed out, it makes a beautiful wrist corsage or a hair bow tied to a ponytail holder.

MOTHER OF THE BRIDE / MOTHER OF THE GROOM PIN

Using a piece of blue wired ribbon and a piece of lace, both 9 and a half inches long with the lace slightly wider than the ribbon, Sandy tucks the ends of the ribbons in the Mini Bowdabra and then scrunches the center in, with a little mountain up. She adds some flowers and tied up with the Bow Wire, it makes a lovely Mother of the Bride/Groom pin.
