About a 30" Length of 1.5" Grosgrain RibbonA Small Scrap of 3/8" Grosgrain Ribbon Lined Alligator Clips Some String Scissors A Lighter Glue Gun and Glue Stick (not pictured) Directions: Start by laying your ribbon out horizontally flat in front of you. Then take one end of the ribbon and make a loop by pulling the end up and around the flat ribbon.
Next, bring up that longer piece on the right in the above picture and make another loop that curls under. This part is a bit tricky--you need to tuck the tail of this loop under the tail on the first loop. I hope that makes sense because I couldn't really get a good photo to illustrate. I did try though.
Below is a picture of the backside of the bow at this point.Wrap the string tightly around the center to keep your bow from unraveling. Once you are comfortable that the bow is secure, tie a knot in the string and trim any loose ends off. At this point you should heat seal the ends of the tails on your bow. Just run a lighter lightly over the V shape cuts you made to prevent the ribbon from unraveling. It doesn't take much heat--you will see it happen. Be careful not to burn yourself!
Now glue your lined clip to the back of your bow.Almost done. Next, glue your scrap piece of 3/8" ribbon around the front of your bow and over the back side of your alligator clip. Trim up the ends and heat seal the 3/8" ribbon end. Done! Super cute and easy to make bow! **Note**This bow is the 2nd piece in a 6 part series that ends in a stacked bow tutorial.
