Now we’re going to make this really cute little gift for a teacher. I actually bought these at a dollar store and I thought they were great for organizing. So, I just threw some rubber bands, paper clips, and then some candies, and I’m just going to clip these up. Now, I’m just going to stack these up and take my Bowdabra Scrunchy Ribbon. And, I’m just going to put this here like that. Next, I’m going to just take my ribbon, take some bow wire, and I have it folded in half, so I can just pull this through a slipknot there. Take my wire and go the long way. And so, I’ll just bring this up here. And I already have my wire here, so I’m just going to separate the ends and bring them around.

So, I’ll take my Mini Bowdabra, I’m going to take my Bowdabra Bow Wire, I’m going to fold it in half and lay it into the Mini Bowdabra and then just tuck the ends underneath, so they stay out of the way.
Then, I’m going to take my ribbon, and I’ve dovetailed most of it, but just in case you don’t know how to dovetail, I’m going to fold it in half and then I’m going to just clip towards the fold at an angle. You have this cute dovetail and then you just want to seal that with a fray stop.
