Start with the first 2.5" ribbon and measure a 10" tail then give it a twist and add it to the bow maker. Push that tail to the top and then make a 7" loop, twist the ribbon again add it to the bow maker then repeat on the other side. Then trim a 12" tail and pull that down.
Next use a 1.5" ribbon and repeat the same process but make your loops 6.5" this time.
Repeat the same process with a 1.5" ribbon making 6" loops.
Use a 2.5" ribbon and do the same thing again making the loops slightly smaller.
Then do repeat the same process with the last 1.5" ribbon and then make a third small loop to cover the center.
Finally, take two pipe cleaners and twist the ends together to make one long pipe cleaner. Remove your bow from the bow maker and use the long pipe cleaner to secure the center of the bow twisting it off at the back.
