Supplies for this bow:

2 – 22” Long x 4” Wide wired solid-colored ribbon
1 – 28” Long x 2.5” Wide wired printed ribbon
2 – 18” Long x 2.5” Wide wired printed ribbon
2 – 14” Long x 2.5” Wide wired printed ribbon
1- 12” Long x 2.5” Wide wired printed ribbon
Ornament
Poinsettia floral pick
Bowdabra Bow Wire
Large Bowdabra

Instructions:

First cut a piece of Bowdabra bow wire, fold it in half and place it in the Bowdabra.  This will be your slip knot.  Next, dovetail all the ends of the random pieces of ribbons. To dovetail, fold the ribbon in half and cut it at an angle away from the fold.

Now, place the two long pieces of 4-inch wide ribbon in the Bowdabra.  Then, place two pieces of ribbon for the tails.

Next start adding the random pieces of the ribbon by folding them in half and placing them in the Bowdabra.  One side will be a loop and the other side will be two short tails (funky bow style)

Shape or stack the ribbon pieces and arrange them as you place them in the Bowdabra. Scrunch everything down in the Bowdabra with the wand.

Add the ornament and floral pick

Next, place the ornament in the Bowdabra, follow by placing the floral pick in the Bowdabra as well.  You will be able to shape them when you tie them off. Now, use the bow wire you loaded as a slip knot and pull tight.  Remove the bow from the Bowdabra, turn it to the back, and tie a knot. Tie another know and leave the excess wire so you can use it to tie your tree top bow to your tree.
