How-to's for simple ribbon bow

To make this simple bow, you'll need;
  • ribbon
  • scissors
  • craft glue
Start with cutting three pieces of ribbon 2 1/2" - 4 1/2"

Add a dot of glue in each end and bend to the center of the ribbon.
Glue them on top of each other.

Attach a small piece of ribbon around the middle of the bow.

You can also tie a ribbon around the middle.

Super easy huh! They would look so cute on a card or a layout or why not attach to a hair clip.
Next time I will show you how to make this bow/flower;
