Incorporate two colors from your wrapping paper into the bow with this clever two-toned bow.
Choose two ribbons -- one wider than the other -- for your bow. Cut both ribbons twice the desired length of the finished bow. Form the wider piece into a loop and secure with glue. Center and wrap the narrower piece around the first and secure.
Flatten the layered loop and secure in the center with glue. Cut another piece of ribbon; wrap and tie it around the center of the flattened loop.
Pull the tails of the wrapped ribbon tight, trim the ends, and secure on the back of the bow with glue.
