First, place the Bow Wire in the Bowdabra and fold it underneath while working.   Cut  2 –  12″ length of ribbon and place them in the Bowdabra.

Next, place the ribbon in the Bowdabra, and twist the ribbon as it passes through the channel.

Now, create 5 loops, each one slightly smaller than the last.
Use the bow wand to push the loops into the channel.

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