Father’s Day Gift made special with a Bowdabra bow

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here with a Father’s Day gift made with the Bowdabra.  It’s summertime and that means it’s time for bar-b-cues and beer.

Special Father’s Day Gift with Bowdabra bow

1 1/2″ wide sheer ribbon
Rinea Foiled Paper

Father’s Day Gift

Begin by placing 18″ of gold bow wire in the Bowdabra and fold it underneath so it is out of your way while you create the bow.   Start by placing a 3″ length of ribbon in the Bowdabra.

Bowdabra Bow Making Tool

Fold over the ribbon, creating a 3″ loop on the left side.   Twist the ribbon and place back in the channel and create another loop on the right side.  Continue making  loops until you have 3 on each side, twisting each time you place the ribbon in the channel.

Create 2 smaller loops on each side to complete the bow.  Use the Bow Wand to push the bow into the Bowdabra.
