• Welcome back to RibbonBazaar.com’s weekly DIY webseries.
• This week we’re going to make a traditional white pew bow using satin to make the bow and adding tulle for its tail.
• Supplies used include a scissor, ruler, some white two and a half inch double faced satin, and 54 inch tulle ribbons.
• We begin by measuring out 24 inches of the satin and 30 inches of the tulle, and doubling them.
• Folded and cut, these pieces will both be used as the bow’s tails.
• We then cut the ends of the satin tail piece diagonally.
• This pew bow will be relatively simple compared to some that we’ve made in the past.
• And since we’re using double-sided ribbon, there’s no need to twist to the opposite face after each loop.
• Once completed, we cut the end of the bow,
• And attach the satin tail piece to its center.
• We then attach the tulle, holding the bow and tails in one hand.
• Wrapping all the pieces together using some florist wires and twisting in place, we then position each loop around a circle.
• To cover up all the knots and florist wires, we then cut and fold in the sides of a small piece of the satin ribbon, keeping it folded with some fabric glue.
• We then wrap this around the center, setting it in place with the same glue.
• Finally, we seal the tail ends of the satin using a lighter.
• And there you have it!

• Welcome back to RibbonBazaar.com’s weekly webseries on how to make bows!
• In this episode, we use green and tangerine shiny taffeta ribbons to make a mixed bow.
• As usual, we’ll be using some floral wires, scissors and a ruler for measurement.
• We begin by measuring roughly 20 inches of the green and 18 inches of the tangerine, and then doubling both for the two sides of the tail.
• We then fold the ends and cut diagonally as shown to get the desired look.
• As this bow won’t have a loop in its center, we can just skip right into making the three inner loops.
• This can get a bit tricky while trying to unroll and hold two ribbons at the same time.
• Next, we work on the larger, outer loops of the bow.
• As we continue crafting, you can probably tell why having a ribbon holder would be helpful here.
• Once the outer loops are complete, we position the smaller three loops around an inner circle and then the five larger loops around an outer one.
• With that, we separate the two colors in each loop to ultimately double the number of loops.
• We do it so that the two colors alternate around the bow.
• And once we’ve finished puffing up all the loops, we’re done!

• Welcome back to RibbonBazaar.com’s DIY webseries.
• Today we’ve got a quick little video showing how to make a small, double-looped bow.
• We’ll use some fabric glue, scissors, lighter and our deluxe satin ribbon.
• We measure out and cut two pieces of ribbon, one 20 inches long and the other 2 inches.
• We then take the longer piece and lay it across the palm of one hand,
• looping it between the index and middle fingers as shown,
• And then run the ribbon through the center to tie it in place.
• Next, we take off the bow and start work on the 2 inch piece that will be used to cover up the knots around the bow.
• We simply put some fabric glue on the edge of one side and fold the ribbon over,
• And then do the same to the other side.
• Now we just roll the cover around the center of the bow,
• Gluing and pressing it in place.
• We then hold the tail ends of the bow together, fold them in half and cut diagonally.
• Finally, we take the lighter and singe the ends of the bow so that they don’t fray.
• And there you have it! Please remember to like and subscribe for more!

• Welcome to RibbonBazaar.com’s weekly webseries on how to make bows!
• In this first episode, we show you how to make a classic 8 looped plus one bow with tail.
• As you can see, we have some florist wires to tie the bow with and, of course, scissors to cut the ribbon with.
• We start by unrolling some ribbon to make the tail of the bow. We do this first since we will need both hands to make the bow.
• Next, we cut the ribbon to 18 inches but you may adjust it to how long you want the tail.
• Now, line up the tail section together to fold it in half.
• Then take the ends of the tail and fold them together as shown.
• We can now finish off the tail of the bow by cutting diagonally to get the classic ribbon look.
• Now, for the bow, start by unrolling a bit of ribbon, and make a small loop that can be crimped together with your thumb and forefinger as shown.
• This will make the small loop at the center of the bow.
• Next, we enter a series of repeating steps of twisting the ribbon 180°, flattening it on one side, twisting another 180°, flattening it on the opposite side, and keep repeating until you have four flattened loops on each side.
• Let’s have a look at two more loops to get a better feel for it.
• In fact, let’s speed things up a bit here.
• Now that the flattened bow is complete, hold the center of the tail underneath the center of the bow and crimp it in place.
• Holding the bow plus tail in one hand, grab two florist wires with the other and run them through the center loop.
• Then bring it down across the folded tail, tying everything together.
• Finish off by twisting the wires until it’s all taut.
• Finally, separate each loop of the bow until it forms a circle.
• And taking advantage of the ribbon’s wire, go through each loop to puff up and give shape to the bow’s loops.
• We’ll speed things up for you here but you get the idea.
• And there you have it!
