Mother’s Day Gift Bag

Gift bags can be decorated in so many different ways and adding a beautiful bow provides a really nice finish to the gift bag.   I started by decorating my gift bag first so it was ready for the finishing touch – the pretty bow.

ribbon for bows

Start by cutting a 6″ length of ribbon and placing it in the channel.

Now begin creating your bow with another length of ribbon, twisting on each pass through the Bowdabra.  If you are using a wider ribbon as I have, it’s easier to pinch the ribbon first and then twist it.

Create as many loops as you need.  Use the wand to push the loops into the Bowdabra.  I created a 4 looped bow, slightly decreasing the size of the loops on each pass.

Since this is for Mother’s Day, I added a spray of flowers before removing the bow.  While pulling the bow up, the bow wire was tied off holding the flowers in place.

Using the excess bow wire I tied the bow to the gift bag handles, then fluffed out the bow and flowers.

I wanted to add a final decorative element to the gift bag so I die cut coordinating papers with TLC Designs Dies, stamped a sentiment, then added it to the gift bag with a tiny flower.

Doesn’t that bow look lovely?

Thanks for stopping by.
