Step 1

Determine the tail length for your bow and twist the ribbon at this point, keeping the right side of the ribbon facing you.

Step 2

Make a loop and give the ribbon a twist. Holding the twist between your thumb and index finger, make a second loop the same size in the opposite direction. Twist the loop toward you.

Step 3

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.

Step 4

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