Start with your 4" ribbon and measure an 8" tail. Pinch and twist it and then make a 6" loop. Trim the ribbon from the spool.
Next, repeat this process with the 2.5" ribbon then the 1.5" ribbon.
Now repeat with the same ribbons in the same order but make your loops 5.5" this time.
Take two pipe cleaners and twist the together at the ends to make one long one. Remove your bow from the bow maker and use the pipe cleaner to secure the center of your bow. Twist off the pipe cleaners at the back and you're all set!
