You can see how easy it is to glam up a bow using floral picks and various ribbons. So let’s get started:
How to make a fun Valentine’s Day Sweet Treat
- Cone shape treat bag
- Small candies
- Valentine’s Day cardstock
- Baker’s twine
- Large scalloped die cut
- 7/8” sheer ribbon
- Silk flowers and leaves
- Valentine’s Day stickers
- Mini Bowdabra
- Bowdabra bow wire
First, gather all your materials.
Next, Fold the scalloped die-cut cardstock into a cone shape. Hold it in place with tape. Now, place the cone cardstock into the cone-shaped cello bag and fill it with some candies. Tie it closed with baker’s twine.
Make the Bow
Now, cut 18″ of Bowdabra Bow Wire and fold it in half and place it into the Mini Bowdabra. Then, cut several inches of 7/8″ sheer ribbon approximately 36″. Fold the sheer ribbon in half to create a crease, at the crease mark press the ribbon into the Mini Bowdabra.
Fold and press the ribbon to form your first loop. Now, fold and press a matching loop on the other side. Fold two more loops. Trim away excess ribbon and dovetail the ends.
Cut a couple of inches of 3″ wide tulle ribbon – dovetail each end. Press the tulle into the Mini Bowdabra. Then, insert some little floral pieces into the Mini Bowdabra and add some greenery.
Scrunch down with the Mini Bowdabra Wand. Then thread the two end pieces of the Bowdabra Bow Wire through the loop. Gently pull the bow out of the Mini Bowdabra. Separate the two loose ends of the Bowdabra Bow Wire and bring them around to the back of the bow. To tie off the bow, pinch the Bowdabra Bow Wire securely against the bow. Twist the bow 4 to 6 times in a clockwise direction. Fluff the bow. Use the excess wire to attach the Valentine’s Day sweet treat bow to the candy bag.
