Continue making same-size loops in this way until the bow has the fullness you want. Wrap a narrow width of ribbon around the bow center, tying the tails together in the back of the bow. Do not trim the narrow ribbon tails.

Arrange the loops as desired to shape your bow. Use the narrow ribbon tails to attach the bow to your project.
