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, take each of the shorter pieces of tulle in white, red, blue. Fold them in half to find the center and lay them in the Bowdabra one at a time. They will be the tails for your swag.

Next, take the roses and lay them into the Bowdabra.  Face them in different directions as shown.

Now, place all the longer pieces of the tulle colors together.  Lay the end of the sandwiched tulle strips into the Bowdabra.  Then make loops back and forth to form a bow.  When you reach the end, fold inward and lay into the Bowdabra.

Finishing your patriotic tulle swag

Now scrunch 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.
