First, cut a piece of Bowdabra bow wire.  Fold it in half and insert it into the Bowdabra.  You will have a loop on one side and two loose wires on the other.

Next, take your netting and scrunch it down into the Bowabra like an accordian.  Making sure it is centered in the Bowdabra as you work.

Then, take your satin ribbon and twist and fold it back and forth.  Finally, add the beads, folding back and forth like your are making a bow.  Scrunch everyhthing down with the Bowdabra wand.  Inset the loose wire ends through the loop and pull tight.  Tie a knot.  Fuff out your bow and use the glue gun to add to the photo frame.
