It is Cassie here from CuppyCake GumDrop Boutique & More. I am going to show you how to make what I call a ” Fancy Bowtie Bow ” My girls absolutely loves these. They have many in different prints and colors. The best part is they can be created a number of ways. You can use 7/8″, 1″, 1.5″ and bigger to create this kind of bow! Today, I am going to show you how to make it using 1.5″ ribbon. So let’s get creating.
Supplies needed are:
1.5″ Ribbon— (1) 8″ long piece and (1) 5″ long piece
3/8″ Ribbon — (2) 4″ long pieces
Hot glue gun and glue
Step 1: Heat Seal all ribbon ends.
Step 7: Fold one side down.
Step 8: Fold the other side down.
Step 10: Flip the bow over.
Step 12: Repeat for the bottom flap.
Step 13: Set that bow part aside.
Step 15: Heat seal the ends of the “V” cut ends.
Step 16: Fold in half.
Step 17: Crease the center.
Step 18: Flip the ribbon over.
Step 20: Fold the other side down
Step 21: Add a drop of hot glue in the center. Hold the center until the glue dries.
Step 22: Flip the bow over.
Step 24: Press and hold until the glue dries.
Step 27: Add the top of the second bow part we made and attach it to the bottom of the first bow part we created.
Step 29: Add the ribbon to the back of the bow.
Step 30: Wrap the ribbon around the entire bow.
Step 32: Now it is time to line your clip with your remaining 3/8″ 4″ piece of ribbon.
Step 33: Apply hot glue to the back of the clip.
Step 36: Open your clip. Apply hot glue to the reminder of the ribbon, fold down and attach it to the clip.. Hold until the glue is dried.
Now you are done with your cute simple Fancy Bowtie Bow!
