Start by measuring a 7" tail. Twist the ribbon and add it to the bow maker. Then make a 6" loop, twist again and add that to the bow maker. Repeat with a second loop on the opposite side. Pull both loops towards the top. Make two more loops just like this and pull them towards the bottom.
Next, make two more loops that are slightly smaller than the last ones. Make one more loop for the center and then trim another 7" tail.
Remove your bow from the bow maker and grab a pipe cleaner. Use the pipe cleaner to secure the center of the bow, twisting it off at the back.
