To create the bows, I started by placing the bow wire in the Bowdabra then wrapping the wire underneath so it is out of my way while creating my bows.

Then I cut a 6″ length of ribbon and placed it in the channel.

Selecting a second ribbon, I placed the ribbon in the channel and created the loops, twisting the ribbon as I placed it in the channel.  Pulling up on the bow wire, I tied off the bow.  I then created 2 additional bows.

As I didn’t have tissue paper, I used some pretty pattern papers as wrapping paper. First, I gathered several cards with envelopes and wrapped the pattern paper around them.  Next, I placed them in cellophane boxes, wrapped a length of ribbon around each box,  and adhered the bows to the corners.

I twirled the bow wire on a craft pick creating a spiral effect with the bow wire. What a perfect way to present small gifts and gift cards!
