How to decorate a holiday gift bag in style with Bowdabra

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman is here to share how to decorate a holiday gift bag with Bowdabra.

Gift bags are made more spectacular when you add a Bowdabra created bow.

Start by placing the Bow Wire in the Bowdabra and tucking it underneath while you create your bow.  Next, add a 12″ strip of ribbon in the channel.

Start creating your loops, gently twisting the ribbon as it passes through the channel.

Continue creating the number of loops desired.
I wanted a 3 looped bow, so I made each loop a little smaller than the last.
Then I used the Bow Wand to push the ribbon into the channel.

Pull up on the Bow Wire and tie off.
Fluff out the bow.

Use the Bow Wire to tie the bow to the Christmas picks.

Punch holes in the gift bag.
Run the Bow Wire through the holes and tie off.
