Default back of bow holders

OK so I've made a bow holder for this consignment store in town. First one I've ever made. It looks a bit like this, but her's is better...

<center><b>Choose Your Own Color Initial Wood Hair Bow Holder</b></center>

Does anyone know the best way to attach the long ribbons? How do I make it look clean.

I've heat sealed the ends, and I was thinking a staple and hot glue, but I'm afraid it will look messy.

Any help would be awesom!

What I do is heat seal the ends of the ribbon and then hot glue and inch or so onto it. Then I staple it . Then I take an inch of matching ribbon and heat seal those ends. Then I fabritac or hot glue that over the top of the ribbon where the staples show. That way it just looks like one ribbon, you don't see the staples, and it gives it a more finished look. Make sense?

After glueing or stapling- I cut matching felt to size and glue it to the back. Covers up everything and protects the wall.

I do the same, glue, staple and cover entire back with felt. Cheap addition but makes it look clean.

**Beautiful Holder, I love it!!**

Never even thought of that...that's a good idea...do you hot glue the felt down or use fabric-tac?

Thanks
