Create beautiful full bows with our “Key To My Heart” Twisted Boutique Bow. These are great for Valentine’s Day, but change up the ribbons for any holiday, season, or outfit!
Hi, it’s Brittany from Crafty Mischief again.
I’m here to share an adorable bow that is perfect for Valentine’s Day!
The Ribbon Retreat carries all kinds of Ribbon Mixes and Packs, including Seasonal Mixes.
You can use these mixes to make bows for any outfit or occasion!
For my bow I used the Key To My Heart Seasonal Mix.
It includes the 1 1/2″ Hearts Galore Black Valentine 1 Ribbon, 1 1/2″ Shocking Pink Solid Grosgrain Ribbon, 7/8″ Rose Pink with White Polka Dots Ribbon, 5/8″ White with Black Swiss Dots Ribbon, and 3/8″ Shocking Pink Solid Grosgrain Ribbon.

Start by making a Twisted Boutique Bow with your preferred method.
The Ribbon Retreat now offers The TOTT Hair Bow Instructions for free!
Now cut and seal the ribbons for your ribbon spikes.
For my ribbon spikes I used two 6″ lengths of 1 1/2″ Shocking Pink Solid Grosgrain, one 6″ length of 1 1/2″ Shocking Pink Polka Dots Grosgrain Ribbon, two 6″ lengths of 7/8″ Rose Pink with White Polka Dots Ribbon, two 6″ lengths of 5/8″ White with Black Swiss Dots Ribbon, three 6″ lengths of 3/8″ Shocking Pink Solid Grosgrain Ribbon, three 6″ lengths of 3/8″ Black Solid Grosgrain, plus one 4″length of Black Solid Grosgrain for the clip.
Lay the ribbon spikes in the order you want them.
Thread your needle with black thread and sew through the middle of all the ribbon layers.
Sew back down through the layers and back up again a couple more times.
Fold the ribbon like an accordion and wrap the thread around the ribbon 3 or 4 times.
Knot and tie off in the back.
Glue the Spike Bow to the Twisted Boutique Bow.
Glue a black felt circle to the back of the bow.
Glue the other black felt circle to the ribbon lined clip.
Glue the two felt circles together, with the clip “sandwiched” between them.
The felt circles help stablilize the large bow on the small clip.
Now your adorable Valentine bow is finished!
Try it on your little Valentine Princess and watch her smile from ear to ear!
Try this fun bow with any ribbon and color combination you’d like for a whole new look!
