How to make elegant bows for beautiful, decorative packages

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here showing you how to use the Bowdabra to create elegant bows  perfect for all your decorative packages.  Vary the colors and size of the ribbon to get different effects.

You may find that your bows are almost as popular as the packages themselves!

With the holidays upon us, birthdays during this time can get lost in the shuffle.  Why not give a sweet gift to that special someone, decorated with a Bowdabra bow!  It definitely provides a WOW! factor.
