Let's begin by showing you how to make an adorable bow using the Mini Bowdabra! First, cut an 18″ piece of Bowdabra bow wire, folding in half and placing down into the Mini Bowdabra, tucking ends under. Next, pinch the end of the ribbon on the roll, placing it down into the Mini Bowdabra.

Then create a loop by folding over the ribbon at the 2" mark on the Mini Bowdabra measuring tool. Insert the ribbon down into the Mini Bowdabra smoothing the ribbon out. You don't have to twist the ribbon since it's the same on both sides.


On the opposite side, fold over the ribbon at the 2" mark creating another loop, inserting the ribbon down into the Mini Bowdabra.

Continue making eight more loops on each side for a total of eighteen loops.

Use the Mini Bowdabra wand to crunch down all the loops on the bow.
To finish the bow, make a button (small) loop to cover the bow wire, then scrunch all the loops down with the Mini Bowdabra wand and cut off the excess ribbon. 
While the bow is still in the Mini Bowdabra, thread the two loose ends of the bow wire through the loop, pulling tightly while gently pulling the bow out.
Tie the bow wire in a double knot and cut off the excess bow wire. Then fluff the bow for a fabulous look!
Next, take the acrylic napkin ring and apply a dab of glue on the top center.
Place the end of the ribbon on top of the glue, centering the ribbon.

Wrap the ribbon around the napkin ring to where the ribbon began, cutting off excess ribbon and gluing in place. 
Once dry, glue on the bow where the ends of the ribbon strip are glued to the napkin ring.

How adorable is this bow napkin ring! Now make as many 
bow napkin rings as needed.
The perfect choice for setting a gorgeous holiday table
