Default Christmas tree topper bows

Does anyone know where I can get instructions on how to make the large bows for Christmas trees and the big baby bows? I have had several people to request them and I have no idea how to make them.

I found this link

Heres another.
http://www.offray.com/howto.html

Idk what shape of bow, maybe something like the one in this link...the pom pom bow. But of course with tails. I usually make more than one and then wire them together. I also add tails (4) streaming down. I always use wired edge ribbon so that it is easier to shape. I make the tails a lil curled ( just roll up the ribbon and pull it out from the center) Idk if this helps, hopefully it does. Im sure there are instructions somewhere...or maybe some else can show their way.

Thanks for posting this, I have a friend who wants a big bow for the front of his 4-wheeler for a local christmas parade, so I've been looking for something to do.

I made some big guys (like 12" across) using the Bow-Dabra I bought at Michaels a million years ago. I put on my carriage lights for Christmas. They came out FANTASTIC!!

We use our Bow-Dabra for EVERYTHING....bows on top of the tree....pew markers for weddings. It's great! If you use one of these little suckers, your tree topper will look just like they do in specialty stores!!!

I couldn't agree more!

I bought it way back in the day to help with hairbows. HA!! Didn't work worth diddly for that (man, was I a novice!!!), but definitely is great for bigger bows ~ wreaths, baby showers, you name it!

I know!! The only bad thing is once the word gets out everyone wants you to make bows for every special day!
