Now, fold in half longer piece of ribbon to find the center and then insert into the Bowdabra.

Next, make a boutique style ribbon with the longer piece of ribbon.  Find the center and place it right side of the ribbon down into the Bowdabra.  Next, take one end of the ribbon bring it over and scrunch that right side down into the bowdabra. Then, bring the other end over the first loop which forms a sort of X shape and lay that in the Bowdabra.
