Bow your Gift Tag
Adding a special bow to your gift tags can help make them as memorable as the present itself. This pinwheel bow was a perfect match for the whimsical Lawn Fawn Gnome.
To begin, cut about 18” of ribbon, and fishtail the ends. Make the first loop down, with the long tail hanging down in the front.
Keep pinching the first loop, and bring the tail up towards the back. (The ribbon will keep winding counterclockwise – not back and forth)
Bring the tail back down, to start making your second loop.
Bring the tail up and to the back.
Pinch the center together.
Tie embroidery floss (or wire) around the center of the bow. Fluff and adjust the bow as needed.
Take a second short length of ribbon and tie a single knot in the center (Leaving tails long enough to wrap to the back of the bow.
Glue the knot over the center of the bow with a quick drying adhesive.
