Isn’t this bow so cute? This is a bow I actually like to wear in my hair. It is simple yet fun. The ribbon I used: 1″ brown/pink/mint fashion dots for the base bow, 7/8″ hot pink for the top bow and 3/8″ mint for the center. The button came from my paradise button jar. I made this bow almost entirely with the GlueGlider Pro. The only thing I used hot glue for was the button and the barrette. I could have lined a single prong clip with the GlueGlider Pro but I wanted this bow to be on a barrette. The GlueGlider PRO is a really cool thing to have around! I love using it to glue two ribbons together for the double sided look. The applicator dispenses a very sticky double sided tape. It goes on very smoothly and I really like the fact that you can still fold the ribbon after you have glued it. When using a glue gun you can’t fold after you have glued.
Take your 1″ ribbon and cut it to 6″. Seal the edges with your preferred method. Use your GlueGlider PRO to put a strip of double sided tape on the edge of the wrong side of the ribbon.
Take the other end of the ribbon and loop it around forming a circle. The right side of the other end of the ribbon will go on top of the tape. Press down on the tape to make it secure.
Take your 7/8″ ribbon and cut it to 5″. Repeat the process above with your 7/8″ ribbon.
Put a little strip of tape on the inside seam of your ribbon loop (as shown above) and press the top of the loop down to the tape. Make sure both sides are even.
This is what your ribbon should look like after you press the top of the loop down. Repeat this process with your 7/8″ ribbon loop.
Put some tape on your 1″ ribbon (which is now your base bow).
Attach your 7/8″ ribbon to the base bow.
Cut your 3/8″ ribbon to 2 1/2″ and seal with your perferred method. Wrap your 3/8″ ribbon around the center and secure with your GlueGlider PRO. Glue to a barrette or clip.
Add a button if you want to and you are done! So simple!
