Bowdabra creator, Sandy Sandler is here to show you in this super easy video DIY how you can create an elegant bow for several uses with Bowdabra. Yes, this elegant bow is perfect for a wedding but…so you need a tree-top bow? It is perfect. Are you looking for an amazing centerpiece for an upcoming event, you need to look no further. And if you want to make your gift packages extra special this elegant bow will fit the bill. And that is not even scratching the surface!
First, cut a piece of Bowdabra bow wire. Then, fold it in half and insert it into the Bowdabra. You will have a loop on one side and two loose wires on the other side. This will serve as your slipknot. Tuck the ends under to stay out of the way while you are making your bow.
Next, lay the berry pick into the Bowdabra.
Now, place the mesh pieces into the Bowdabra. Then, take the strips cut from the rolls of the Bowdaba ribbon which you have already dovetailed the ends. Lay them into the Bowdabra alternating the colors. (To dovetail, fold the ribbon in half and cut at an angle away from the fold.)
Since this is quite a lot of ribbon you may want to use the Bowdabra wand and scrunch them down occasionally.
After you have used all the pre-cut scraps of ribbon, lay in the feathers. Finish by placing the blue ornament pick in the Bowdabra.
Now, push everything down with the Bowdabra wand. Then, insert the loose wires through the loop and pull tight while the bow is still in the Bowdabra. Then, remove the bow from the Bowdabra, separate the ends, turn to the back, and tie a knot. Tie a double knot for extra security.
Finally, fluff and arrange the bow. And you have an elegant bow that can be used for all sorts of applications.
