Birthday Bugs Gift with Fancy Bow Tutorial

I know you have already seen my Birthday Bugs idea so with this one i thought i would give you a little tutorial for the gift bow!!!

It is made with 3 loops of ribbon, each slightly smaller than the last, i stick mine with DST (double sided tape) as i find this is easiest and i have the seam to the ribbon loop at the back.

I then stacked the ribbon largest first... and cut a small scrap of ribbon that is just big enough to go round the bow bundle, i then cover the length of the little strip of ribbon with DST and wrap it rounf the bundle of ribbon with the join on the underside

and voila! pretty gift ribbon, just stick on with some more DST and your done!

thats a really cute gift. Thanks for the instructions on how to do the bow, I do a similiar looking one but without cutting and sticking the loops, I just do it with one long bit which is much more difficult- will be trying your meathod next time. Thanks :) Congrats on the Hobby Craft thing and good luck with your B12 injections, I hope they help you feel better x
