RIBBON FLOWER BABY HAIR BOW

Starting with the Mini Bowdabra, Sandy places the Bowdabra bow wire in the tool and inserts a pink wired ribbon (6” wide and 13” long). She scrunches a few pieces of petal-shaped green wired ribbons (1” wide and 4” long) over it. She scrunches pink wired ribbons with round edges (1” wide and 4.5” long) above the. Lastly, she scrunches a small piece of red wired ribbon and ties them all together to finish the beautiful baby shower bow that can be attached to a headband. Once the bow is complete, Sandy shapes it like a flower to enhance the beauty of the bow. She then weaves the bow wire with the seam of a headband in a way so that the wire does not hurt the baby’s head. And in minutes, you have a super simple and pretty headband bow ready!

FALL HAIR BOW

Sandy cuts the ends of two silver colored ribbons, one wired (1.5” wide and 14” long), into dovetails and scrunches them down into the Large Bowdabra tool. Afterwards, she inserts two more ribbons (1.5” wide and 30” long) of similar colors as the previous ones. She scrunches these ribbons in a circular ‘X’ pattern to complete the top of the bow. Then she ties it all to complete the beautiful bow for the fall. Tying it to a ponytail holder, Sandy shapes the bow with the dovetailed tails flowing out.

YELLOW AND BLUE HAIR BOW

Returning to Mini Bowdabra, Sandy uses yellow (16” long and 0.5” long) and blue ribbons. She inserts a second set of ribbons of the same colors (20” long and 1.5” wide) over the previous two and scrunches the longer ribbons in Bowdabra in a circular ‘X’ pattern. She finishes the bow by adding a few pre-curled korker ribbons and a little piece of silver crystal on the top. The finished bow has long tails that she later ties to a ponytail holder.

 

BEAUTIFUL SCRUNCHY BOW

Sandy scrunches in a pink wired ribbon and silver scrunchy ribbon in the Bowdabra and tops it up with pre-curled korker ribbons in pink and red colors. Tying the bow up, she uses the bow wire to tie it to a ponytail holder and spreads it out into a flower shape.

CUTE LITTLE SUPER SIMPLE HAIR BOW

Sandy uses a blue dovetailed ribbon, 9” long and scrunches it into the Mini Bowdabra,. She inserts another blue ribbon, 11” long, shaped in loops. She then scrunches a silver wired ribbon (2.5” wide and 15” long) and adds decorative purple flowers and corker ribbons to it. The final bow can be added to a ponytail.

GREEN AND ORANGE DOVETAILED BOW

For the next bow, Sandy uses green and orange dovetailed ribbons (1.5” wide and 7” long). She then inserts two other ribbons of same color combination but with length of 13 inches and scrunches them in the tool in loops. Tied up and shaped out, it makes a super simple dovetailed bow in minutes.

BABY SHOWER GIFT WRAP BOW ON A PRESENT

Sandy uses dovetailed pink and purple wired ribbons, 14” long, which have their ends tied in a knot. She then scrunches a few petal-shaped green ribbons on top and adds more pink colored round-edged ribbons. She finally tops it with a few korker ribbons. Tying it all to finish the pretty bow, she spreads the tails to make it more beautiful. Placed on a present, it makes the gift look so very special!
