  • Fold the ribbon under to make the first loop. Twist the ribbon to make the front side face out and pinch it in the center. (Note: You will need to twist the ribbon after each consecutive loop in order to make sure that the front side of the fabric will always be facing out.)

  • Insert ribbon wire through the center loop and wrap around to the back. Before tightening the wire, make sure the ribbon tail is folded back so that the front side of the fabric is facing toward the front of the bow. Leaving one end of the wire longer than the other, tightly twist the wire together at least 3 times. Don’t cut the wire just yet.

  • Trim the ribbon tail to your desired length. Feed the remaining ribbon through the center loop at least as high as the loops are long. Grab the longer piece of wire from the back and insert it through the center loop over the ribbon and around to the back.
