Bowdabra Bow Making Tool
Bow Wire

First, cut and fold in half some Bowdabra bow wire, lay it in the Bowdabra with a loop on one side and two loose wires on the other.  This will be your slipknot. Place the wires underneath the Bowdabra while creating the gift bow.

Next, place a 12″ length of gold ribbon in the channel.

Then, Select another ribbon and place it in the channel and start creating the  loops. Matching them on each side.

Keep making loops until you have a 5 loop bow.

Use the Bowdabra wand to push the loops into the channel.

Now, thread the loose bow wire through the loop and pull tight while the bow is still in the Bowdabra.  Remove it from the Bowdabra, separate the wires and turn to the back and and tie a knot and double knot.

Fluff out  and arrange the loops on the bow.

To use your blue birthday gift bow, wrap a package, then tie the same gold ribbon around the package.

Tie the ribbon to the package using the gold ribbon.
Wrap the bow wire around a craft pick to curl slightly for a beautiful affect.
