First, start by placing the Bow Wire in the Bowdabra and fold it underneath while working.   Cut a 12″ length of ribbon and place it in the Bowdabra.

Holding 2 ribbons together, place them in the Bowdabra, twisting as it passes through the channel.

Create 3 loops on either side of the channel.

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

If you are using a basket with assorted crafty tools as your gift,  wrap the basket in cellophane. If you are decorating a package glue or tie the bow on.  The uses are limitless.
