Hearts Camo Bow

Hearts Camo Bow - {The Ribbon Retreat Blog}

Adding together two ribbons for one bow technique is a great way to add detail to a basic bow.

This bow is the Basic Boutique technique using Red Solid Grosgrain in 1 1/2″ and Heart Camo Valentine’s Day Ribbon in 7/8″.

There are a number of ways to put together the ribbons for the bow.

You can glue the ribbons together, sew them together, or just hold them together while you shape the bow.

I just held the ribbons together in this particular bow.

Using two ribbons is a lot of fun! I’m going to be playing around with it more and using different techniques and see which ones are my favorite.

Do you have any favorite techniques you like to use two ribbons for?

    Do you ever use that bow maker with the dowel rods? If you do, does it help to make prettier bows. I usually have one side that just won’t cooperate.
    Thanks for all of your bow tips.

      Hi Shirley! I do use the bow maker for most of my bows. A lot of the instructions on the TOTT Hair Bow instructions use the bow maker and I would be lost without it! Pretty much all the bows I put up are first tries so I would say that, as a beginner, it does help with keeping the bows even and pretty. The trick for me is keeping the shape when I take it off the bow maker. But I love not having to worry about making each side even and having to move ribbon around like I do if I don’t use the bow maker. I hope this answers your question. :) Thanks for reading!
