A beautiful bow adds style and flair to any present. It almost doesn’t matter what is inside the box because the bow for the gift is so pretty.
Things You’ll Need
• Ribbon • Scissors • Wrapped gift box
Step 1: Choose the Ribbon
Select your ribbon. Wider, thicker ribbon works best for a more dramatic bow.
Step: 2: Cut the Ribbon
Place your ribbon around the gift box and measure equally on both sides. Cut the ribbon using your scissors.
Step 1: Tie the Ribbon
Tie a knot with your cut ribbon.
Step 2: Fold the Ribbon Into an Accordion
Cut a new piece ribbon to the desired length and fold it like an accordion.
Step 3: Cut Diagonal Slits
Now that your ribbon is folded into an accordion shape, hold the middle and cut diagonal slits on either side of your ribbon.
Step 4: Fasten the Bow
Fasten your newly cut ribbon to the gift box and tie down with the excess ribbon from step 1.
Step 5: Secure the Bow
Secure your bow with another knot and fluff up your ribbon for effect. You can cut off any excess ribbon to your liking.
