What You Need:
I am using 1 1/2 inch wide ribbon for the bow part
and 1/4 inch wide ribbon for the center.
Available at Joann Fabric and Crafts or Hancock Fabrics.
Needle and Thread
Hot Glue Gun
I am using Alligator Clips...
...and Snap Clips.
Start by measuring 7 inches of the 1 1/2 inch wide ribbon...
...and cut it.
The edges are already starting to fray so....
Fold it into a loop overlap the edges a 1/4 inch.
...and cut the thread.
Fold it to make a bow shape.
Take the thread and wrap it around the center of the bow...
On the back of the bow take the needle and push it behind the thread you have wrapped around the center of the bow...
...and tie it off.
Put a little hot glue on the back of the bow.
Place the 1/4 inch ribbon on the glue while it's still hot.
Wrap the ribbon around the bow.
Put a little dot of hot glue.
Let it dry a little bit before you cut the excess ribbon.
Here is the back of the bow:
I went ahead and made the second bow.
Now take your aligator clips.
(yes, that is the technical term)...
...and place the 1/4 inch ribbon on the glue.
Glue the inside of the top of the clip.
Here are two of the clips I've made:
Glue the top of the clip...
...and place the bow on the clip.
Here is the back of 2 completed bows...
...and the front!
