Step 1: Pinch the ribbon and make a loop Hold the ribbon between your thumb and index finger, leaving a length of ribbon as a tail. Wrap the ribbon around your thumb to make a center loop. Step 2: Make a loop Make a loop on one end, pinching it between your thumb and forefinger. Tip Twist the ribbon after making each loop so that the shiny side faces out. Step 3: Make another loop Use your other hand to make a loop the longer length of ribbon. Make the loop the same size as the first, and collect it between the thumb and forefinger that is holding the first loop. Step 4: Keep making loops Continue looping the ribbon and collecting it between your thumb and finger until you're satisfied with the fullness of the bow. Tip Make an even amount of loops to keep the bow symmetrical. Step 5: Tie the ribbon Tie the middle of the ribbon with a wire tie. Step 6: Pull the loops Separate the loops of the ribbon, pulling them out one at a time and in opposite directions. Start from the inside and work toward the outside. Step 7: Cut the tail Cut the end to match the tail you left, and you are ready to decorate. Did You Know? Did you know? F.W.
