Let’s make the bow for the Back-to-School Headband:

  1. Cut the ribbons to length. Quickly pass the ribbon ends through a flame to seal.
  2. Fold one length of bow wire in half and put it in the Mini Bowdabra. Then, tuck the ends of the wire under the Mini Bowdabra to keep them out of the way.Wire in Mini Bowdabra Silver
  3. Layer the 6″ lengths of patterned ribbon in the Mini Bowdabra.Layer Ribbon Lengths in Mini Bowdabra
  4. Scrunch the tulle into the Mini Bowdabra. Lay one end of the 11″ patterned grosgrain ribbon face down in the Mini Bowdabra on top of the tulle.Scrunch Tulle and Add Pattern Ribbon Face Down
  5. Bring the second end to the grosgrain ribbon up and over the pillar and put it into the Mini Bowdabra.Bring Second End of Ribbon Over Pillar

  7. Compress the ribbons with the Mini Bowdabra wand.
  8. With the ribbon still in the Mini Bowdabra, pass the wire ends through the loop and tighten. Tie a secure knot. Then, remove the bow from the Mini Bowdabra, and bring the wire ends to the back of the bow and tie a second secure knot. Leave the wire ends long for now.Pass Wire Ends through Loop
  9. Adjust the individual ribbons and fluff the bow.
  10. Pierce two holes in the center of the bottle cap. Thread the second length of the bow wire through the holes so both ends are on the backside of the bottle cap.Pierce Holes in Bottle Cap

  12. Use the bow wire threaded through the bottle cap, tie the embellishment to the bow.
  13. Using the wires from both the bow and the embellishment, tie the bow to the headband. Trim the wire ends, leaving about ¼”.Tie Embellishment to Headband
