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.

Bend the floral greenery ferns in half and place it in the Bowdabra with each side facing down. Next, add some more greenery to form a fan in the back. Keep adding foliage to your cascading bridal bouquet making sure the stems are facing down which will become the handle.

Now, start adding flowers separating the longer stems from the shorter stems. Keep the shorter flowers in the center and bend the longer ones towards the side. Add the filler flowers as desired. After you have added all your florals, scrunch everything down with the Bowdabra wand.

Now, insert the loose wires through the loop and pull tight while the bouquet 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. The Bowdabra is like having a third hand so it makes creating arrangements a breeze!

To cover the stem handle take a length of ribbon and starting from the bottom twist and wrap till you reach the top. Tie the ends in a half knot. Cut the extra stems for a finished look and then add a corsage pin to hold everything together.
