Default Re: How to make this extremely easy looking bow... ?

Figure out how big you want your bow and double it. Decide how long you want your tails, double that then add it to the bow measurement. Add 1/2 inch for shrinkage. I'd use 2-3 inch ribbon, but depends on the look you're going for. Take your length of ribbon and fold it in half. Take one side and fold over the tail at a 45 degree angle to make the loop for one side, and do the same with the other side. Now in the middle, you should have a triangle. I use a Sally's clip to hold the center and tie it off. Take a thinner ribbon, cut 4-5 inches and tie in a knot. Glue it to the center of the bow. Take the tails and cut them however you want them and seal the ends. glue your bow to your clip or barrette and you're set
