Add an elegant, dimensional embellishment to create beautiful greeting cards and paper crafts.  It is so easy to give your greeeting cards that extra touch of elegance with an amazing Bowdabra bow.  Use up your scrap ribbon in style!

It is so easy to make bow embellishments for your papercrafting projects using the Mini Bowdabra.

I call this a “Scrap Bow” – – I gather up bits and pieces of left over ribbon and trims then layer and loop them on the Bowdabra to create this embellishment.

Let’s look at the details….

Making It

Fold the Bow Wire in half, lay across the Bowdabra and tuck ends underneath unit to keep them out of the way while you work


Now start layering and looping your pieces of ribbon and trim


Next, use that Bowdabra Wand to press all of your elements down firmly

Finally, pull your folded Bowdabra Wire out from under the unit, put the cut ends through the folded loop end, pull tight and knot.

Glue a button, rhinestone or other element to the center of your bow and attach it to your card.
