Handmade Christmas cards with Bowdabra bows

Materials:

Bowdabra

Bowdabra bow wire

Various ribbons

Christmas papers

I created 2 cards using an assortment of Christmas papers.  After creating the first card, I realized I needed it a little bit smaller to fit into the box so I created a 2nd card.  They bow look amazing and the card can actually become the gift by adding a gift card!

Start by placing Bow Wire in the channel and wrapping it underneath so it is out of your way while creating the bow.

Leaving a 4″ tail, place the ribbon in the channel.

Make a 3 looped bow.  Use the wand to push the ribbon into the channel.

Pull up on the bow wire and tie off.

Fluff out the bow.

Create a 2nd bow using green ribbon.

Create the cards then use the bow wire to attach the bows to the cards.  I had a longer length of bow wire on the red bow, so I rethreaded it through the card and use a craft tool to create spirals.

The green bow was added to the card but I chose not to create spirals.
