Options - how to make a ribbon bow
- Classic bow. The first method: fold the ribbon so that you get 4 equal segments. We take the tape, combining the first segment with the second and third - with the fourth. We have 2 bends on the top and one on the bottom. We cross the turns that we hold, and we have a loop below. We push one bend into this loop and tie the resulting knot.
- Classic bow. For the second method, we will need 2 ribbons and threads with a needle. We take the main ribbon for the bow and fold it into a loop, crossing the ends of the ribbon so that they are the same length. We fix them in the place of crossing with threads.Then we take the middle of the resulting loop and also fasten it to the intersection of the ends, while the seam is better to tighten. The base for the bow is ready. Now do the middle of the bow. To do this, take the second tape, which should be three times smaller than the tape for the base (you can fold the same tape three times). We wrap the bow in the center and fasten the ribbon on the back side.
- Volume bow. Roll the ribbon in several rings. The size of the bow will depend on the diameter of the ring. We crush the circle, thereby obtaining a strip of tape with two folds. On the bends, cut the corners of the tape so as to preserve the integrity of the tape in length. Now again unbend the ribbon in a circle and crush so that the cut corners are in the middle. Ties the middle with another ribbon and straighten the resulting loops so that the bow acquires volume.
- Strict bow. We double the tape so that the ends are in the middle and glue them together. Then we wrap the middle of the bow with a second tape and glue it to the back. If you make such a bow in several layers, you will get pretty impressive.
