Flag Bow

Flag Bow How-To - {The Ribbon Retreat Blog}

The 4th of July is one of the few holidays where I think I can get away with wearing a bow.
And this is the bow I will be donning for the fourth.

I had an idea of a flag bow and this is what I came up with.

It isn’t exactly what I was going for, but I think it works.

Please let me know what you think?
Like it, Love it, Hate it?
I will take suggestions on making it better too. 🙂

If I get some “love it”s, I’ll put up some instructions. 🙂

**If you love this bow, here is a link to the instructions for the Flag Bow**

      Shannon – Not at all! This blog is for all of you to get ideas from, to copy, and to make them even better. 🙂

    I like it but I think I would make the blue and stars ribbon into a boutique bow. But that’s JMO. It’s cute though.

      Lora, you mean like a big bow layer behind? Or spikes?

    Love it!! I like the way you positioned the star ribbon.

    It’s too cute! As per someone’s suggestion above, if you were to make a twisted boutique bow, you could put the stars ribbon in the upper left quadrant and use the two-toned method to make the rest using your stripes ribbon. It would be too cute!
