Cut about 18″ of Bowdabra wire, fold in half and insert into the Bowdabra Tool. Bend the ends around and secure underneath.
Begin building the base layer of your gift bow with a 6″ hunter green tulle: start with an approximate 10″ tail and add 3 large loops (8″) to each side of the Bowdabra Tool. End with another 10″ tail. Fold tail ends in half and snip a triangle from the loose ends to the folded side angled at approximately 1″.
Add the middle layer with the 1.5″ patterned wired ribbon. Beginning with a tail slightly shorter than the tulle tail (1.5-2″) and make three loops on both sides of the Bowdabra Tool slightly smaller than the tulle layer. End with a tail and trim as described above.
The final layer of solid burlap wired 1.5″ ribbon is just the same as above, just slightly shorter/smaller loops: Tail, 3 loops to each side of the Bowdabra Tool, and ending with a tail. Trim the tail as described in step 2.
Compact your layers with the compacting tool that comes with your Bowdabra Tool.
Pull the wire up from the bottom of the Bowdabra Tool. Insert the loose ends through the looped end, pull it tight while holding down your layers. Tie off in the back and use the excess Bowdabra wire to attach the bow to your Father’s Day gift.
Fluff and spread out your loops to create a full masculine Father’s Day gift bow!
I hope you are inspired to create something Bowdabra beautiful today!
