How To Draw A Bow Ribbon

Big, beautiful and festive — that’s what a bow ribbon brings to any event or celebration. Drawing a bow ribbon is a great way to dress up a gift or a card, or to decorate a room. And the best part is, it’s a cinch to draw. All you need is a few simple tools, a few minutes, and a few tips and tricks to turn plain ribbon into a stunning, show-stopping bow.

The first step when drawing a bow ribbon is to choose the right ribbon. You can pick from a wide variety of colors and sizes. Be sure you purchase enough ribbon to make two loops for the ribbon’s “tails”. Once you have your ribbon, you’ll need to measure out the correct length for your bow. The correct length should be around three times the length of the ribbon from the center fold.

The next step is to carefully fold the ribbon. Start with the ribbon facing down. Carefully make a crease in the center with your finger, bending the ribbon slightly. Fold the ribbon in half and use a ruler to make sure each side is even. This will form the center of your bow. Make a second crease, this time folding each side inward and pressing lightly with your fingers to create the two tails.

Once the ribbon is correctly folded, you can begin to tie it into your bow. This can be done using either a thin, firm length of string or the ribbon itself. Start at the center and tie the ribbon in a small, tight knot, creating a nice bend in the ribbon. Then, fold the right side up and over the center, and tie this portion in an equally small and tight knot. Finally, do the same for the left side, and adjust the small knots until you have achieved your desired look.

If desired, you can draw some loops into the tails. String or ribbon makes great loops if you have enough length. Simply pinch the ribbon and make a circle, tying the ends together. You can also use decorative pins to add an extra bit of detail to your bow ribbon. Fasten the loops to the ribbon after folding the tails in and completing the knot.

It’s that easy! Now you can easily give your gifts, cards and decorations that extra wow-factor with a gorgeous bow ribbon. With just a few simple tools, a few minutes and a few tips, transforming plain ribbon into magnificent bows is now a piece of cake. Now it’s time to get creative, twist, twirl and tie your way to your very own bow masterpieces.

The next step is to create the final shape of the bow. You can do this by stretching the ribbon and folding the tails over the center, forming the loops. You may need to use your fingers or a small pair of scissors to help create the perfect shape. You can make the loops as big or as small as you like, just make sure to press lightly and take your time.

Finally, you will need to secure the bow. A simple knot or a few stitches work great for this. If you would prefer to avoid knots and threads, you can also use a small piece of clear packaging tape. Be sure to press down firmly and press the edges down and onto the ribbon.

Your bow ribbon is now finished! You may feel intimidated at first, but with just a little bit of practice and some patience, you will be able to create beautiful bow ribbons in no time. Make sure to store your ribbon properly, away from moisture and sunlight, to ensure that it stays as beautiful as the day you created it.

When it comes to special occasions and celebrations, nothing quite beats the elegance and charm of a bow ribbon. Drawing a beautiful bow ribbon doesn’t have to be difficult or time consuming. Just follow these simple steps, choose the right ribbon, measure and fold the ribbon, tie it, manipulate the loops and then secure your ribbon, and you will have a stunning bow ribbon in no time.

Now that you know how to draw a bow ribbon, you can adorn your cards, gifts, decorations and more with gorgeous, show-stopping bows. And to think all it took were a few simple steps and a few minutes of your time. So, take some inspiration from your local florist and try your hand at drawing a bow ribbon. You never know, you might be the next bow-master!
