A ribbon bow can be a wonderful decoration for festive packaging, accessories and even clothes. You can easily make it at home with a minimum of effort. It is enough to know the technique of execution and adapt yourself to its manufacture.
How to choose a tape?
Ribbon for the manufacture of a bow can be absolutely any, but it must necessarily keep the shape. You can take satin, velvet, silk, satin, cotton, linen, polyester, etc. The more unusual the material, the more beautiful the bow will be. The finished product can decorate any accessory, card, gift, as well as make a brooch, attaching it in clothes.
Satin ribbon bow: how to perform
With the help of satin you can make an elegant and simple bow. Take a narrow ribbon, 20 cm long. Fold it in half, bend the resulting loop down. The resulting loops cross, turn out one in a circle and tighten. This is the 1st version of a simple satin ribbon bow.
For option 2, take 2 tapes: to fix the center and the base. Cross the ends of the base tape to each other, leaving 3 cm at both ends. Combine the middle of the circle with crossed ribbons and sweep it in the middle. Cover the seam with the 2nd ribbon and tie it on the reverse side of the bow.
Bow "Dior" from the tape do it yourself
The “Dior” bow is usually used for festive table setting, gift decorating and as an accessory. Take the necessary tape, separate its coils on top of each other, gradually reducing the size of the coil. Its last diameter can reach up to 1 cm. The received bow is fastened with a thin tape from the same material as the main one, breathing under the smallest round.
This bow looks original and beautiful. To make it take the average width of the tape. In the center of the flower, twist it so that the 1st round intersects with the end of the ribbon. Do such manipulations with the bow until you get the optimum flower pomp. The bow is fastened with the last round of the ribbon, tied with a knot in the center.
Ribbon bow for gift decoration
Fold the ribbon in several layers of the same length, ending with the last round in the center. Using scissors from 2 sides in the center, make 2 indentations, where you push the wire and twist tightly on the back. Spread the finished product and attach to the gift. For the manufacture of such a bow, you can use the tape, different in texture and color.
Take a wide enough ribbon, sew it into a ring and fold it in half. 2 rings, made in this way, overlap each other at the seam. Tie 2 circles with the 3rd section of ribbon. Glue sequins, beads, sequins and beads of various sizes on the bow. In the center you can sew a large bead, a beautiful button, a rhinestone or a stone.
Master class: bows of ribbons on the fork
To make bows of ribbons of the same size, you can use a regular fork. Take a thin ribbon, put it on a fork, leaving about 5 cm from the edge of the tail. Secure the ribbon with a needle or pin. Wrap the remaining tip of the ribbon around the plug and pull it out from the bottom of the short tail. Thread the ribbon in the middle of the fork into the slot and slide it down. Lift the end of the ribbon up and put in the resulting loop. Straighten and tighten into a knot.
If you twist the plug with a ribbon 2 times, you get a bow with two wings. The finished bow is removed from the plug. The edges of the tape are cut to the desired length and burn with a lighter so that it does not crumble.
To decorate hairpins for hair, rubber bands or headbands, you can make an original bow in the form of a neat rose. Cut tapes 40 cm long, cutting off the edges at a sharp angle. To prevent the ribbons from falling apart, scorch them with a match or a cigarette lighter.
Depart from the edge of 1 cm, sew with a basting stitch, starting from one sharp end to the other. Sort the ribbon on a string and pull it off. Glue a bead to the edge of the wire - this will be the core of the rose. Secure the resulting billet with an elastic band by flashing several ties. You can attach a finished ribbon ribbon to any hairpin, elastic band, hair band, and also decorate a bracelet or make a brooch.
