How to Make the Bows Centerpiece
Materials:
Lots and lots of 1.5″-2.5″ assorted ribbon
Scissors
Bowdabra
Bow Wire
Bowdabra Wand
Cardboard/plate(template)
Glue gun/glue sticks

Lets begin by making lots of bows – between fifteen and twenty! To make one bow, fold 18 inches of Bowdabra bow wire together and place in the Bowdabra, tucking ends under. Leave the ribbon on the roll so not to waist any, Crease the ribbon just above an eight inch tail and insert ribbon down into the Bowdabra. Make a five inch loop and press into the Bowdabra.


Fold the ribbon on the opposite side, making a five inch loop, inserting down. Fold and insert two more loops on each side for a total of four loops, making sure to scrunch down the ribbon using the Bowdabra wand.


Dovetail the ribbon ends by folding the ribbon together and cutting at an angle fromĀ  the fold down to the corner tip.

Cut a 7.5″ circle (use plate as template) from cardboard and hot glue bows to edge.


Continue gluing on bows around circle . . .


until the edges are completely covered. Fluff and straighten ribbon and tails.


Makes for a really pretty centerpiece!


A candle or vase can be added to the lovely center of bows!
