St. Patty’s Striped Bow

St. Patty's Striped Bow - {The Ribbon Retreat Blog}

This bow is perfect for St. Patrick’s Day!

It’s got all the green, and it doesn’t need shamrocks with how fun and bright it is.

The bottom layer is made up from Apple Green Solid Grosgrain Ribbon in 1 1/2″. It is a Basic Boutique bow (click the link for instructions). It is about 2 1/2″ wide.

The top layer is made using Apple Green/Emerald Diagonal Stripes Ribbon in 7/8″. It is half of a Basic Boutique bow since it uses two loops instead of four. It is about 2″ wide.

When I used the bow maker to make it, instead of having the ribbon ends both going down (for two loops), I brought one up to match the direction of the tails on the bottom bow.

I lined my clip with Apple Green Solid Grosgrain Ribbon in 3/8″ and used the same ribbon for my knotted center.

I love how it turned out, and I hope you love it too!
