Ribbon Flower Bows

In Uncategorized on July 8, 2011 at 9:18 pm

What you need:

  • Ribbon (your choice)
  • Buttons or patch
  • Barrette clips
  • Glue gun
  • Scissors
  • Lighter
Step 1: Start with covering the barrette clip with ribbon. Glue a small strip down the length of the ribbon and press to barrette. 

Step 2: Cut 4 lengths of ribbon to 8 inches.

Step 3: Form a loop with the ribbon, use a dab of glue to attach each end.
Step 4: Then with the loop, use another dab of glue on the inside of the loop and form a figure eight with the ribbon. (I totally forgot to picture the figure 8 step…sorry!!)
Step 5: Stack the figure eight loops, alternating ribbons if using two types, into an asterisk * or star-like shape. Use a dab of glue in-between each ribbon layer.
Step 6: Glue a ribbon, patch, or whatever you like to the center completing your bow!
Step 7: Finish the bow by gluing the barrette to the back!
This was the FIRST ribbon so it’s uneven and not exactly perfect…so please excuse it’s sloppiness! But you can the picture.
This was my third bow and it is MUCH better! I used 6 rows of ribbons instead of 4 for the one above too.
