Making the perfect gift topper doesn't have to be hard! We have all the steps you need to create your own gorgeous, full bows. You'll want to make these for every gift-giving occasion!

Step 1

Form a ribbon circle that's approximately the width of your bow. Ours measures about 6 inches. Continue winding ribbon around for the number of loops you want. We wound our ribbon 8 times.

Step 2

Flatten the loops, and using scissors, make diagonal cuts at each corner.

Step 3

Refold the flattened loops, matching the notches in the center. Firmly tie a thin piece of ribbon or wire around the center.

Step 4

Working on one side of the bow, pull out the innermost loop, and twist it to the right. Pull out the next innermost loop, and twist it to the left. Continue in this way until all loops on one side have been twisted. Repeat for the other side of the bow.

Step 5

Arrange the loops as needed to make the bow. Use the thin ribbon or wire ends to attach the bow to your project.
