North Pole Satin Bow

North Pole Satin Bow - {The Ribbon Retreat Blog}

Most of the ribbon for this bow came from the North Pole Seasonal Ribbon Mix.

I started with the Basic Boutique Bow using 1 1/2″ Solid Grosgrain Ribbon in Apple Green.

Then I did Spikes using 7/8″ Polka Dot Ribbon in Red/White and 5/8″ Polka Dot Ribbon in Green/Red.

I tried really hard this time to make sure my spikes would show in the bow. I did the same size as my first bow, which was larger than the bow going over it, but it still didn’t show completely. I am going to try spikes again with my next bow and they will show. I hope. 🙂

The next bow is the Basic Boutique Bow. I used 1 1/2″ Satin Christmas Print Ribbon under Christmas Ribbons.

Then I topped off the bow with the Inside Out Bow Technique using 5/8″ Solid Grosgrain Ribbon in Copen.

Last, I used 3/8″ Swiss Dot Ribbon in Emerald/White for the center knot and the lining for the clip.

The clip that I used for this bow is the French Barrette. I also love using the Steel Single Prong Clips. They hold much better than regular ones.

All done!
