How to Make a Bow
I have always wondered how to make a fancy bow that I see on gifts. It’s hard to believe that they are so simple as they are to make. With this simple technique, you can make an elegant fancy bow for any occasion. I add wreaths to a variety of different crafts because they add such fullness to my project. This video will give you one example of how to make a beautiful stylish bow that will make anyone wonder just how you did it.

Time needed: 8 minutes.
- Step 1
Make 3 big loops with your ribbon as seen in the video above.

Cut the large bottom loop in half and trim the ends to give the classic ribbon cut
