There are a ton of great instructions on bows here. If you go into this thread I have listed a bunch of great places to check out for instructions and tutorials.

Here is the basic bow tut I am talking about that everyone should master first before venturing out. Once you have that mastered then the rest should come easy to you.

The only thing different in those instructions is I would use a wood burner to seal my ribbon ends instead of using Fray Check. Fray Check stains and doesn't work very well.
Ronnie once again thanks soooo much I truely appreciate it all of your help. i really didnt know there was a difference between brands. thanks for letting me know. i have a walmart and a joann near so ill look for it there
