Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here with a quick and easy way to decorate gift packages for teachers, friends, and more with Bowdabra. Easter, Mother’s Day, and the end of the school year are coming soon, and you will be ready with this adorable way to decorate the gifts!
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!
Thanks for stopping by.
