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.

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.
